Pancetta & Parsnip Pappardelle

I saw Jamie Oliver prepare this on TV many years ago and was very impressed with how quick & easy it was.  The combination of Pancetta, parsnip and rosemary go together really well.  Use a vegetable peeler to shave the parsnips into lovely ribbons which only take minutes to soften and cook. This is also a good way to get more vegetables into your diet – you can’t tell the parsnip from the pasta so it’s good for those big and little kids who turn their noses up at vegies.  Just don’t tell them!

Pancetta is lovely thin slices of cured pork belly and can be substituted with streaky bacon but it won’t be as smoky and salty.  The pasta is a fresh packet for two people and all of the above are readily available in supermarkets.  I chose the basil and cracked pepper flavoured pasta purely because it looks really lovely on the plate… This is a fabulous dish which is surprisingly delicious.

Latina Basil & Pepper Pappardelle

Pancetta & Parsnip Pappardelle

Ingredients:

100g packet Primo Choice Pancetta

1 handful fresh rosemary

1 good knob butter

2 cloves garlic grated

2 parsnips, peeled and finely shaved

300g packet of Latina Fresh Pappardelle with Basil & Cracked Black Pepper

1 good handful Parmesan cheese, grated

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

Method:

In a large, non-stick frying pan, fry your pancetta and herbs in the olive oil for 2 minutes, then add the garlic and parsnips

Cook for a further 3 minutes on a medium heat, until the pancetta is slightly golden and the parsnips have softened nicely

Cook your pappardelle in salted boiling water according to packet instructions, then drain, reserving a little of the cooking water

Mix the pasta with the parsnips and pancetta and stir in the butter and the Parmesan, adding a little of the cooking water to loosen the mixture and make it creamy and shiny

Season to taste

Serve piping hot…

 

Bon Appetit!  🙂

Mushroom Papardelle

Mushrooms are a wonder food!  We love them and I add them to a lot of my recipes for flavour and texture.

This is my version of a Jamie Oliver recipe for Mushroom Tagliatelle using Swiss Brown and Porcini mushrooms and wider flat pasta – Papardelle.  It is a delicious dish and the lemon zest gives it a fresh tang…

Mushroom Pasta

Ingredients:

375g pack of fresh Pappardelle (I used Latina Basil & Cracked pepper)

Olive Oil

2 knobs of butter

300 grams Swiss Brown mushrooms, thickly sliced

100 grams Porcini mushrooms, soaked and roughly chopped, reserve the water they were soaked in

1-2 fresh red chillies, deseeded and finely sliced

2 sprigs of rosemary, leaves pick and roughly chopped

150ml of single cream

100g fresh parmesan, finely grated plus extra for grating on top

Zest of l lemon

1 small bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked and roughly chopped

Extra virgin oil

Salt & freshly ground black pepper to season

Method:

In a large frying pan add a good lug of olive oil and the butter

When hot, throw in the mushrooms and toss for a few minutes or until starting to brown

Add the garlic, chilli and rosemary and cook for a couple more minutes, stirring occasionally

Add the cream and reduce to a medium heat.

Season with salt & pepper

Add a couple of tablespoons of the water the Porcini mushrooms were soaked in

In the meantime cook the pasta according to the directions saving a little of the cooking water

Tip the drained pasta into the pan of mushrooms and toss well

Add the parmesan cheese, lemon zest and parsley and mix well.

If it needs a little extra liquid add in the reserved cooking water to make it saucier

Serve with an extra grating of parmesan cheese on top and a drizzle of extra virgin oil

Bon Appetit 🙂
