    Recommend me a dish to cook. I've never cooked before and want to start. I'd like something that's not too complicated.

    You could try a tortilla (Spanish omelette).

    You can add litterally any vegetable in it that you want along with the ingredients mentioned, I added broccolli in my first go but I'm sure courgettes, beans, sweet-corn or tomatoes will do as well. It's actually quite filling and delicious and really easy to make.

    EDIT: I used this recipe actually, for a frittata - http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1...heese-frittata
    It's pretty much the same thing

    Make a pasta bake. It's really, really easy, but just interesting enough to count as proper cooking.

    It says cook in the title, not heat.

    When you say you've never cooked before, do you mean that literally or have you cooked in so far as you've taken sauces out of jars/had fry-ups etc?

    Pasta is a great place to start. It's very easy. You can put what you like in the sauce as long as you like the flavours.

    so so glad I have found someone else who does this - my family all think I'm weird for eating stuff like that with mayo but it's lush!

    OP - maybe homemade pizza, or soup? Pasta too, really easy. I usually just make a basic sauce then add it to pasta and cooked chicken strips, plus a bit of crumbled goat's cheese and salad.
