    Great idea. Thanks I will try to use the rest of the pasta for this insha Allah.

    And not knowing how to cook is not an indication of laziness at all. Many people get married young and dont know how to cook, but learn pretty quickly. Not everyone has parents that teach their daughters to cook from a young age and does not mean that the person will be lacking in other areas at all :o
    Relax Betty, it was not aimed at you.

    One can be self taught. My brother and I would cook when I was about 14 and we did it without YT.

So i liked the dish. It was a but too creamy and cheesy for me (that was what the youtube tuturial said it was going to be like), so if i could make a 'waterier' but not too cheesy version i would definitely be be a fan.

    i want to try pesto pasta soon insha Allah.

If there is a lack of dedication to something so basic what other areas are/will be lacking? This is about more that mere cooking.

    Weird how a lot of the cooking that we like centres around basically opening a jar and pouring it's content into a pan and applying heat. In short it's an indication of laziness.

    Not aimed at you this is a general observation.

    They're pretty cheap so try getting one from Iceland or somewhere just to try it out in sha Allah

    There is this one pasta dish that I got from this vegan YouTuber that is probably the easiest thing to make if you are in a hurry that's kind of like my substitute for Mac and cheese.

    Its basically pasta and hummus as the sauce with nutritional yeast, some lemon and chili flakes.

    I know it's very boring but its yummy and fast.

    Sounds good masha Allah. It's good to have one staple dish you can cook and know is good. I want to learn how to cook too. Thanks for the spices ideas.
