C’mon, it’s pasta, what’s not to love? The most ubiquitous of Italian exports and every homes favourite quick dish staple, my recipes vary from the quick and simple to the really rather involved all of which are an absolute delight!
This squid ink pasta recipe with bacon, spinach and capers is not the first time the very dramatic black pasta has appeared here on Krumpli. I love the stuff, it adds so much drama to a dish but also a subtle but great flavour.
It would seem that pasta pies are typically designed for those with larger families because all of the recipes I could find were to feed an army. When I say an army I probably mean many small mouths as the appearance is definitely kid friendly, however as an adult I like a bit of fun food on occasion too!
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.
So apparently it is a big day on Monday and we all need quick dinners right now, Bucatini all'Amatriciana is a classic pasta dish from the Lazio region of Italy and it is seriously tasty... Hard to believe you can pack this many hardcore flavours into a dish in juts 20 minutes whilst cooking everything from scratch!
This simple pot roast rabbit pasta is the third rabbit dish I have here on Krumpli and if any of them will convert you it is this one. You will not believe the clean but magical flavours that just scream out of this most unassuming of dishes.
Whether you call this tomato consomme, tomato broth, tomato brodo, tomato bouillon it is and will be the most intensely tomato flavoured stuff you have ever tried, obviously I skipped calling it tomato stock as it is not ‘cooked with tomato bones’ so it can’t be a stock
I’m sure there will be some itching to point out that the presence of pasta makes this tuna Nicoise pasta salad a fraud, well so be it. It kinda has the flavours of a Nicoise salad, sans olives of course… I hate olives! Most importantly the presence of pasta makes this dish a perfect picnic recipe,
This ragu sauce is makes the perfect hearty summer pasta if you ask me, and that is the perfect meal after I have spent a day at the grindstone in the garden, particularly as the mercury has now permanently risen!
Oh yeah and pasta, I was really torn between making this Pea and Ham Penne Rigatoni with some fresh Pappardelle which would also be truly delightful however it would appear that I need a new pasta machine, which is simultaneously very sad and very exciting!
Ooooo, look at the black pasta… I am loving using squid ink pasta at the moment. The silky almost velvet texture I spoke about in this previous squid ink pasta recipe forms the bedroc of this stupidly simple Squid Ink Spaghetti with Pepperoni and Peas
