Mushroom Pappardelle. A delicious Meat Free Monday meal prepped for £2 a head.
Recipe for 2
200g fresh or dried pappardelle pasta or tagliatelle/spaghetti/linguine if you prefer
200g mixed mushrooms
1 small onion finely chopped
1 garlic clove crushed
30g dried porcini
2 tbsp creme fraiche
2-3 tbsp grated Pecorino (or Parmesan)
Greek basil (or thyme works well)
Soak the porcini in 100ml boiling water. Take out the porcini with a fork reserving the porcini stock. Sweat the onion and garlic in a lug of olive oil. After 5 mins add the porcini. Add the porcini stock, season well. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Add the fresh mixed mushrooms to the pan - you don't want to overcook them so don't throw them in until the pasta is nearly done. Cook the mushroom mixture for 3 minutes before adding a small amount of the pasta water (50ml), the creme fraiche and a squeeze of lemon (1 tbsp). Stir in the cooked pasta, 1 tbsp grated Pecorino and some fresh herbs. We used Greek Basil and it worked beautifully. Serve immediately with more grated Pecorino.

Manjericão é benéfico ao fígado, fonte betacaroteno, diurético e ajuda combater insónias, dores menstruais e claro vai super bem na pizza.
É originário do médio oriente, Índia e da região mediterrânica, no entanto, felizmente é cultivado em quase todo o mundo.
O manjericão é sagrada e protectora para as mulheres do campo.
