Nonna Tonda – 50% off pasta orders

Nonna Tonda was established by a husband and wife duo, James and Rebecca. After a road trip in Italy learning about new and delicious dishes, Nonna Tonda was born in 2020.

The pasta is freshly made, authentic, and the menu changes weekly. The pasta dishes, complete with sauce and garnish, are packed and delivered straight to your door in a box that fits through your letterbox. Magic!

I have a 50% discount code which means your portions could be as little as £2.92. For restaurant quality pasta, that’s pretty reasonable in my opinion! It’s ideal for a special meal at home, feels much fancier than a takeaway, and is notably cheaper too.

Simply Cook – FREE box

This handy little box contains the sauces and spices to make four different meals of your choice. Simply Cook‘s variety of recipes is almost overwhelming, there are so many delicious sounding options!

The ingredients lists for each recipe tend to be very simple compared to recipes typically found in cookbooks, and usually only require total of 4-5 items on average. This helps to keep shopping lists short and meal prices very affordable, but still exciting.

The meals can also be adapted super easily to use up what you already have in. As a veggie household we often swap out ingredients for Quorn, which works really well with Simply Cook recipes. Choose your four free recipes (just pay £1 to cover postage) and your box will be delivered straight through your letterbox.
