    I'm sure i've seen a recipe for a cake made from Pasta (Vermicelli) - does anyone have the recipe or can point me in the direction of where it lies?

    You will probably find it on the SW website. I've never heard of it so when you find it let me know what it is like

    I'm sure my consultant made it in class once and it was alright, and i've seen it somewhere recently in another thread - but i can't remember where!!

    I just fancied trying it at home so i've got a sweet fix in the evening

    Someone on another board found it:

    Pasta Cake

    1/2 packet of Vermicelli Pasta
    1 Tub of fromage frais (large)
    2 eggs
    1 tsp mixed spice (teaspoon)
    2 oz of mixed fruit (optional)
    1/2 cup sweetener to taste

    Soften pasta in boiling water, mix all ingredients together and cook for 1 hour at 200c. Cover top with tinfoil or baking parchment until the last 10 mins to prevent overcooking or crisping.

    Not sure about syns but from the look of it the only thing to worry about is the dried fruit which I guess you can use your HE B box for?

    Does this help?

    Vermicelli

    [​IMG]Vermicelli is very fine, long strands of pasta - like a skinny spaghetti - often used in soups. The name means 'little worms' in Italian. It's available fresh or dried.
    Dried vermicelli is usually sold boxed in coiled nests to prevent the delicate strands from breaking. Serve it with delicate oil-based or thin creamy sauces, because thick sauces will soak into the pasta and make it go soggy.
    The term is also used to describe Asian noodles, which are also sold dried, and which come in varying widths, from very thin to wide.
    Rice vermicelli can be used in soups or stir-fries, served cold in spicy Asian salads, or used as the basis for some sweets.

    I wonder how much 'half a packet' of the pasta equates to? I've seen this in teeny and HOUGE amounts.
    Does sound good though, eh? I'd skip the fruit though.
