We all like saving time and learning how to do it. That’s why this month’s recipe from Monica Rivron, our celebrity chef, shows you how to make a popular dish in no time for under a fiver — Cheat’s Meatballs will have you licking your lips while you cook it in your caravan.

All cookery is done in the superb Bailey Unicorn Barcelona IV Bailey of Bristol logo

6 pork sausages £2.50
400g linguine 50p
Garlic, crushed 25p
Chopped parsley 25p
Olive oil 15p
Plain flour 20p
Butter 20p

TOTAL £4.05

  • Add a generous slug of olive oil to a large pan of water and bring to the boil.
  • When the water is boiling, add the linguine and cook for about 12 minutes.
  • While the pasta is cooking make the meatballs. This is the fun bit. Squeeze the meat out of the sausages, flour your hands and roll the meat into balls. In a skillet pan, gently fry the meatballs, making sure they are cooked all over.
  • Add a drop of oil and some butter to a large pan and heat gently before adding the crushed garlic. Turn the heat right down and slowly let the garlic soften but not brown.
  • When the linguine is cooked, tip it into the large pan and lightly stir in the lovely, melted garlic butter, letting it infuse the pasta.
  • Add the parsley.
  • Serve the linguine, then pop the meatballs artistically on top!

Mmmm, delicious!

Space Exploration!

Bailey Kitchen Surface

One thing you can’t get enough of in a caravan is storage. All Unicorn IVs have oodles of space… well, drawers and lockers of it, actually! Beneath the sink are three deep drawers, which are ideal for cutlery, utensils, cleaning kit and food.

At head height you’ll find a large and stylish top-locker with space for plates and crockery. Meanwhile, below the oven, there's room for pans or items you use less often. There's a place for everything… as they say.
