Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Pasta
Ingredients
  • 100g breadcrumbs
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ tbsp parsley
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ of an onion , finely chopped
  • 450g beef mince
  • 300g pork mince
  • 2 onions, finely sliced
  • 50g butter
  • 50g flour
  • 1 litre beef stock
  • 200ml double cream
  • 200g mild cheddar
  • 500g rigatone, cooked to packet instructions
  • 1 large ball mozzarella, torn
  • 100g parmesan, grated
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F.
  2. In a large bowl soak the breadcrumbs in milk. Add the butter, egg, garlic, salt, pepper, grated onion and parsley. Stir everything together, then add the beef and pork and mix thoroughly with your hands - the mixture should be a little wet but not sloppy. Roll into meatballs weighing roughly 30g (around the size of a walnut).
  3. Fry them in a little oil until browned on all sides then remove from the pan.
  4. Add a little oil and cook the onion until soft, then add the butter and cook until foaming. Stir through the flour and cook out - roughly a minute.
  5. Gradually pour in the beef stock, making sure each addition is incorporated before adding the next splash. Pour in the cream and season to taste, then add the meatballs and bring to a gentle simmer to cook them through. Add the grated cheddar and stir together on a really low heat, then add the pasta and stir through the cheesy sauce.
  6. Add to a baking dish with the torn mozzarella and scatter with parmesan. Bake for around 30 minutes, or until the top has browned nicely.

Roasted Garlic Chicken Alfredo Penne

Roasted Garlic Chicken Alfredo Penne
ROASTED GARLIC CHICKEN ALFREDO PENNE
Author:
Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Pasta
Ingredients
  • 3 small bulbs garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 cup grated parmesan
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • 500g cooked penne
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • ½ cup reserved pasta water
Instructions
  1. Cut the tops off the garlic bulbs, pop them on a sheet of tin foil, and dress with 1 tbsp olive oil and a good pinch of salt. Wrap up to seal then bake for 1 hour at 180°C. Cool, then squeeze the cloves from their skins and mash well with a fork. Set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil over a medium-high heat, then add the chicken breasts. Fry, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes, or until the underside is well browned. Season with salt and pepper, then flip. Partially cover the pan with a lid and cook for a further 4 minutes. Remove lid and chicken, then rest for 10 minutes before slicing into thin slices (the same side as the penne quills).
  3. Wipe out the pan with a piece of kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
  4. Add wine and reduce by half. Stir through the roasted garlic puree and add the thyme. Pour in the cream. Reduce slowly until rich and thick - about 10 minutes. Season with ½ tsp salt and the 1 tsp pepper. Add parmesan and chicken and stir through.
  5. Cook penne until al dente, then add along with the pasta water. Beat and toss the pasta well to encourage the starch to emulsify with the sauce. Do this for a minute or so. It should coat every piece of pasta evenly.
  6. Serve!
