This has to be one of the quickest and tastiest dishes ever! I timed myself making it the other day and from start to finish it was 15 minutes flat. I love the fresh, clean flavours that make this dish so scrummy! Perfect for a summer’s day.
- 300g pasta
- 100ml double cream
- 50ml white wine
- Juice and zest of 1 to 2 lemons, depending on how lemony you want it!
- 100g finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese
- 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
- 50g pinenuts, toasted
- Salt & pepper to season
- Handful of chopped fresh parsley, leave some extra for garnish
- Boil a large pan of water, add some salt and pop your pasta in, taking note of how long it’ll take, as each type of pasta is different.
- Whilst the pasta is boiling, pour the cream, white wine, juice, zest, Parmesan cheese and egg yolks into a bowl and give a good mix, until all combined
- When the pasta is ready, drain and pour back into the saucepan,
- Add the cream mixture to the pasta and give a good stir, making sure all the pasta is coated.
- Add in the pinenuts and stir again.
- Taste and adjust the seasoning as required.
- If the sauce is not as thick as you’d like it, pop it on the heat for a few minutes, whilst stirring constantly.
- Just before you’re ready to serve, gently stir in the chopped parsley.
Domestic Princess tips:
- Any pasta will work well in this dish. I think a short pasta like fusili or farfalle (which is what I used for the photo) is my favourite, as there’s lots of gaps for the sauce to get into.
- If you’re making this for children, you can omit the wine and it’ll still be delicious.
- I never find the instructions on pasta to be very accurate, so I always test it about 2 minutes before the suggested cooking time is up, and then keep checking it until it’s al dente.
- Fresh pasta would be delicious in this recipe and would make it an even quicker dish!
- Bangaloreans, you can buy pinenuts in Hypercity and Nature’s Basket.
- If you’re a low-carber, then you can try this zucchini “pasta” instead of the traditional kind.
Please give this recipe a go, it really is so quick and easy!
With much love
