This is a recipe from Bill Granger's 'Everyday' which I experimented with today - Creamy Musroom & Prosciutto Pasta. Found the Prosciutto in my local Supafresh and lined up a good 15-20minutes in the Sunday queues to pay for it. Was worth it in the end as it gave the pasta a much more intense flavour and what I felt, was superior to bacon (and less fattening too!)
J was over and was the first to taste test. He gave it the thumbs up and gobbled up two plates. Next time I'll remember to toss the shaved parmasen through the pasta rather than garnish on the top (J's comment was that the parmasen was too cold).
N.B. The parsley is home grown and is superb tossed through the pasta! I need to cook more - my parsley plant is growing all over the place with parsley (thanks to mum's love and care).So you probably would've gathered that Bill Granger's 'Everyday' is one of the cookbook additions to my collection; I've slobbered over this book and finally resolved to buy it and now that I've bought it, I'm resolved to have a go at each of the recipes inside it (they all look so tempting and even better, bill makes it so simple to have a go). Next post will be his Mixed Berry Muffins which hadn't been too sweet but great as an afternoon snack. Oh, and by the way, I'm reading a copy of Julie & Julia which I got from the station for $2.95 - and I'm getting the urges to start a project like hers (esp. with a cookbook like Everyday!! :P)
