Apple Raisin Pasta Bake
Prepared the day before, this warming pasta bake is a sweet twist on the Canadian “wife saver” and best enjoyed with fresh fruits, a drizzle of maple syrup and a topping of nuts and seeds. Alternatively, cut into squares and top with vanilla bean ice cream for a light dessert!
Pineapple Payasam (Sweet Pineapple Pudding)
Payasam; also known as kheer in Northern India, specifically in the Punjabi community, is a rice pudding, traditional in South Asia. It’s made by boiling rice, noodles, or broken wheat with milk and sugar, and flavored with cardamom, raisins, saffron, cashews, pistachios or almonds. Out of all the payasam I enjoyed, coconut, cashew and cinnamon were the most popular. It is typically served during a meal alongside your curries or rice, or consumed alone as a dessert.
