We are very excited about Bake Off – Italian Week! Pasta and pizza are two of the best food groups known to man, and we have some amazing Slimming World friendly versions for you to try!
Here’s our Bake Off – Italian Week round up
Every good Italian meal needs some side dishes, and this Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread is the best accompaniment!
Made without the need for butter or oils, and using your Healthy Extra A and B…deeeelish!
This Syn Free Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone makes the perfect dinner.
Oozing with cheese and pizza toppings, but best of all Syn Free!! Loads of our Facebook Group members have made it, and found them delish!
This tasty pasta dish is practically a “one pot wonder” and so easy to prepare.
There are spices in this Syn Free Baked Spaghetti with Chicken, but not enough to put the kids off, so they should like it!
Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta is one of those Slimming World meals that everyone has heard of.
Everyone has their own, slightly different version, and this is ours!
This recipe is another fab way of sneaking some extra Speed foods in!
This Low Syn Farfalloni Con Funghi has become a bit of a favourite on our Facebook Group.
This is a big, hearty meal which will feed a whole family and have enough left for seconds.
It reheats very well so is good for lunches too!
As the evenings are drawing in, this Syn Free Chicken Fajita Pasta brightens up an Autumn night!
Quick and easy to prepare, it’ll warm you up in a jiffy!
Although not classic Italian flavours, this dish brings all the comfort of a bowl of pasta, with the spice of Mexican food.
When you eat this Syn Free Spaghetti Carbonara, you just won’t believe that it’s syn free – we certainly didn’t even though we’d made it!
Creamy, indulgent and pretty damn tasty!
Turkey is a much under used and under rated meat.
Not only is it economical but it’s so tasty and deserves to be cooked more than once a year.
This Syn Free Turkey Ratatouille Pasta Bake is another fab way of packing in some extra vegetables without even noticing!
This Syn Free Beef Ragu Fettuccine recipe was one of those happy accidents that happened when the unthinkable happened and we ran out of potatoes!
Super tasty, quick and easy to make, this is like a richer, meatier bolognese!
This 1 Syn Creamy Tomato Vodka Pasta is super quick and easy, and it’s a great way to use up that Christmas vodka lurking at the back of the cupboard.
This recipe uses flavoured quark to replace the double cream in a standard recipe, saving lots of Syns without compromising on flavour!
One of our favourite Italian dishes is Chicken Milanese – crisp but moist chicken breast, breaded and fried accompanied by spaghetti in a gloriously, tomatoey (is that a word?!) garlic-y sauce.
This Low Syn Chicken Milanese with Spaghetti Pomodoro recipe is just as good as the full fat version, without all the syns – perfect for Bake Off – Italian Week!
Marinara sauce is an Italian recipe made with tomatoes, garlic, herbs and onions. Like many traditional Italian dishes there are many variations, but our version is packed full of speed foods.
This Low Syn Meatball Marinara is perfect for the whole family, in fact it’s that good they probably won’t even realise it’s a Slimming World friendly meal.
Nothing screams Bake Off – Italian Week more than this Syn Free Spaghetti Bolognese! Everyone has their own version, but this is ours! It includes plenty of Speedy veg too!
Another classic Italian dish with a Pinch of Nom twist!
And for those of you who eat a gluten free diet, there’s our Syn Free Butternut Squash Lasagne too!
It’s hard to really enjoy pasta without cheese! Think lasagne, cheesy pasta bakes, macaroni cheese…. and the good news is that you can still enjoy this Quick & Easy 1.5 Syn Cheesy Pasta on Slimming World extra easy!
The perfect recipe to beat the rich food cravings whilst watching Bake Off – Italian Week!
This delicious pizza is just 3 syns for the whole thing, which is a tiny fraction compared with the Pizza Express version, which will set you back at 39 syns!
Seafood is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. Personally, we adore it!
Seafood isn’t always the cheapest thing to buy, but this recipe is so delish that we like to make this Syn Free Seafood Pasta for a special occasion meal.
