Degrassi Junior High

The 42 Best Bits of Degrassi Junior High

Everybody’s favourite Canadians were an after-school institution for me.

Wondering what to have for lunch? What about this super-quick lovechild of orrechiette with broccoli, and pasta carbonara?

Orecchiette with broccoli carbonara

You know how you’re halfway through a dish and it’s not turning out quite how you want? That happens to me often, and I end up doing all sorts of things to get it right to the taste profile I’m looking for (how wanky is that phrase but it’s totally exactly what I’m trying to…
