Pasta night! Seeing walnuts in their shell sitting on the kitchen bench, it occurred to me that some tagliatelle with a walnut sauce might hit the spot. The sauce is creamy and buttery – just the thing for a cooler Autumn night, although this is perfect for Summer lunches and light dinners as well.
This is an Ottolenghi dish from Plenty More – we are cooking our way through this book. We feel free to substitute ingredients that are not readily available in our local area. This recipe is one of the less-troublesome of Ottolenghi’s. It is reasonably quick and easy to make, and uses only 3 or 4 pots.
In fact it is Ottolenghi day on the blog – one of two days per month where we publish all the latest posts of recipes we have tried in our project of cooking from Ottolenghi books – currently we are cooking from Plenty More, but not ignoring his other books completely.
