Anyway so we were back from Keri Keri after the long weekend, and I have a big bunch of basil left over from the Farmers market.
All this has got me to thinking what delicious dishes I could make with home made pasta!
Of course there is good ole pesto - which I think I'll make this afternoon, and this wee little tasty treat which I'd call-
Pasta with Two Sauces.
- Grab some fresh fettucine
- Make some rocket and walnut pesto - a fairly thin mix as per The new Penguin Cook Book
- Fry down a mixture of mushrooms, they will start getting a bit wet as their juices come out - but keep frying till this is also fairly dry, add some milk to the mix and some herbs like flat parsley and basil.
- Mix the pasta through with the pesto and divide into bowls. Pour over the mushroom cream, and top with parmesan.
Sounds bloody delicious - and yet again lives only in my head...
