Purple Pasta

1 comment

I must say that I’m not so fond of football and of Fiorentina football team, but the optical effect at the end was just that! 🙂
I am lucky enough to have vegetables supplied by my dad directly from the fields, and our dinners are almost always decided on the basis of what we’ve got in the fridge; and in this case the chosen vegetables were the following…

Ingredients:
leek
radicchio
fennel
chopped mixed nuts (almonds, hazelnuts or more)
noodles (obviously without eggs!)
salt
pepper
thyme
extra virgin olive oil

Method:
Couldn’t be easier and faster: cut the leek into thin rounds and sautĂ© them in a saucepan with water and a little olive oil. In the meantime, cut fennel and radicchio into strips, and add them to the pan where they will meet the leek, already tender and fragrant.
Cook them on a low heat for about 10 minutes, or until the fennel reaches the consistency that you like best, I like it crunchy, so my cooking is very quick. Season with salt, pepper and thyme.
Drain the pasta a little “al dente” and toss it in a pan with our vegetables. Eventually add the chopped nuts to give a nice contrast in flavor and color, which is always pleasant. Sprinkle with newly harvested oil, still  green-ish and pungent and… ready!
The radicchio gives a bit of its beautiful purple color to the noodles, and fennel brings that sweet-ish flavout that, together the ground almonds, I really like! I hope you like it too, so enjoy! 🙂
