Long Description to add
A superb special-occasion recipe when you need to rustle something up unexpectedly, as all the ingredients come from the storecupboard or the freezer. Yet it's so sumptuous!
Could home-made pesto sauce get any better? Yes - when it is turned into Trofie Pasta Liguria
Funny, isn't it, how a bit of lateral thinking can often result in something ingenious? Here Delia has applied the classic carbonara ingredients of cream, bacon and cheese to a risotto...with superb results!
Keep your eye on the risotto as it simmers, adding stock a ladle at a time and your patience will be rewarded.
If you want to make pesto in advance - cover it with cling film, making sure it actually touches the surface of the sauce. You can keep it in the fridge for a week.
When you are buying pasta make sure it is good quality. Look for the words 'pasta di semola di grano duro' on the pack.
Delia's Ragu Bolognese sauce is transformed into Spaghetti Bolognese with the addition of tomatoes and basil
Use a portion of Delia's Ragu Bolognese, add macaroni pasta and a white sauce to transform it in to Baked Macaroni Pie
This is exquisite and pappardelle which are wide flat ribbons work well but any dried pasta can be used.
A lovely quick and easy pasta dish for a busy weekday supper. The fennel salad adds crunch and cuts through the richness of the cheese sauce really well.
