Missing ingredient, needs something?
hi, i made a pasta dish today, i didnt follow a recipe just made it out of what i had and my own ideas, although when i ate it, it was very lovely, but it seemed a little plain not totally plain but i needed something else to complete it. i don't want it to be a complicated recipe as my idea of it was for people that dont have much at home at the time, e.g not many ingredients to make something fancy, but something that is quick, made out of average household food, that you dont have to buy specially and it still tastes good.
the current ingredients within this recipe so far..
- mixed herbs
- a pinch or too of Italian spice (not needed but gives a little extra flavour)
- pinch of salt
does anyone have any ideas what i could put in to not make it taste so bland but something that makes it mouth watering, without having to add chopped tomatoes onion as they both are very common in recipes and i would like something different.
i did have the idea of possible dicing small chopped onion just to give it that little bit more flavour but it still isnt that mouth watering flavour. i just can;t put my finger on it.
All ideas would be very appreciated (:
