Balsamic Mushroom Pasta

Mushrooms lend themselves so well to pasta dishes and this balsamic mushroom pasta is enriched with butter and Balsamic vinegar.

Few flavours go together like balsamic and mushrooms so this super simple mushroom pasta is a pretty safe bet on the flavour front, but it is just fantastic. It does not matter what is happening or how the day has gone it is one of those dishes that requires the cooking skill of a house brick to pull together and always tastes like a million dollars despite costing pennies.

Walnut, Mushroom and Spinach Risotto

There is just something about risotto that is comforting, this walnut, mushroom and spinach risotto plays with autumnal flavours for the win!

’ve waxed lyrical about risotto here a few times so I will avoid the same old ode to the joys of cooking a proper risotto when talking about this Spinach, Mushroom and Walnut Risotto… Well maybe I will just reinforce that it is pretty much the law that you must sup wine whilst stirring a risotto, so there!

Ribollita

If I want hearty tasty peasant food I rarely look further than Italy and this Ribollita is the most magical bean and tomato soup that makes great use of bread.

The Italians just seem to own frugal, hearty, magical peasant food and this Ribollita is just another example of that, whether it is risotto or pasta, great Italian food is often cheap as chips to make and packs such an incredible punch of flavour.
