Refreshing Pasta Sauce…

1 comment

…with mangetouts and cherry tomatoes.
Inspired by the magazine “Cucina Naturale”… I found it excellent! If you cannot find the mangeout peas, you could replace them with French beans. As for the pasta, you choose the one you prefer, the magazine advised to present it with a ring of wholegrain basmati rice, but I had some “pizzoccheri” to finish up. These are the doses specified in the magazine, but for savoury dishes I often don’t measure the ingredients, having to cook just for myself.

(serves 4)
250 gr of mangetouts
250 gr of cherry tomatoes
1 clove of garlic (I didn’t put it, depends on your taste)
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
1 bunch of basil (I had Greek basil, with those tiny and pretty leaves)
1 small bunch of mint
extra virgin olive oil

Clean the mangetouts and cut them into chunks. Steam cook until very tender. Chop mint and garlic (I used a knife, the mint wasn’t enough for a blender) and mix them with 2 tablespoons of oil. Cut the tomatoes into small cubes and season with a pinch of salt, 1 tablespoon olive oil and chopped basil.

Once the mangetouts are ready, season with a pinch of salt, mint sauce and lemon zest. Combine mangetout and tomatoes in a fresh and delightful mix ­čÖé … and add it your pasta!I think lemon goes very well with mint!
