Pappardelle with salsiccia, asparagus and mozzarella

red

There is nothing like a good pasta dish, and if you make sure to buy good quality ingredients, even the most simple pasta dish can end up and be the best meal you had all week. This is also fast food, meaning that you can make it in 20 minutes, so it’s perfect for those evenings when you come home tired and just want easy and delicious comfort food.

Ingredients for two persons:

250 pappardelle pasta (I buy it fresh, it tastes amazing)

200-gram salsiccia (get it at you butcher or at some of the really good supermarkets)

300-gram asparagus, remember to trim the ends.

1 fresh mozzarella (Buffalo Mozzarella is the best)

3 tbs. roasted pine nuts

A handful grated parmesan cheese

2 spring onion

2 garlic cloves

1 tbs. cooking oil

Dried chili flakes

Salt and pepper

Method:

Get the pasta water boiling.

Chop the garlic and spring onion, heat some oil on a sauté pan and throw on the garlic, spring onion and salsiccia. Add salt, pepper and chili flakes.

Set the pasta to cook (if its fresh pasta, it should only be about 3 minutes)

Pour the asparagus on the sauté pan.

When the pasta is done mix it with the rest of the ingredients in the sauté pan. Add the pine nuts, parmesan and mozzarella.
