okay so i only went to whitby for the day, but what's a blog title without alliteration right? off we went on saturday morning for a northern road trip to whitby, a stay in scarborough and a sunday spent pottering about in york. the weather was kind and it was a lovely bank holiday weekend with lots of fun (and food!) to be had.

nestled between burton on trent high street and the town's cinema and leisure complex is not the obvious place that you'd find a place like the dial. straight through the doors, you're met with a clean and sleek colour palette, contemporary seating and a well stocked bar of sprits, wines and beers from near and far.
don't be mistaken, burton is very close to my heart and was the nearest town to where i grew up. however there was a stylish and modern vibe to the place which felt more city chic than small brewery town in the midlands.

what can i say? i love pasta. i think a lot of people avoid pasta dishes as they immediately think about the carbs. however in my opinion, if you have pasta with lots of rich vegetables and proteins then it can be a quick and easy way to make a healthy and colourful square meal.
when i saw that foodies 100 were collaborating with giovanni rana in a food challenge where you can win a pasta masterclass, i knew i'd have to enter. if you read my blog you'll know i love to experiment with pasta.
so incorporating the giovanni delicato cheese ravioli into a layered up vegetarian lasagne, i created a ravoli bake, or perhaps a ravagne? with the four cheeses ricotta, parmigiano reggiano, gorgonzola, pecorino romano along with roasted vegetables in this recipe, you get two of your five a day whilst indulging in the cheesy ravioli layers.
