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.
