Flair Fridays: tagliatelle with walnut-sauce and broccoli

Our first recipe for Flair is a super easy pasta dish: tagliatelle with walnut-sauce and broccoli

15 minutes, 604 kcal per person

Serves 2 people:
1/2 broccoli, cut into florets
1 chilli pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
100 g toasted and chopped walnuts
150 g chestnut mushrooms (the brown ones)
250 g tagliatelle (preferably fresh)
5 tablespoons of mascarpone
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
1 handful of grated pecorino or parmesan
1 dash of olive oil
salt and pepper
a bit cooking water of the pasta

How to make it:
1. Let lightly salted water in two saucepans boil and add the broccoli and tagliatelle. Cook until both are al dente. Keep the cooking water separately, as you will need that to make the sauce. Don’t pour it away!
2. Glaze the garlic and the chilli in a little olive oil.
3. Add in the mushrooms and cook them.
4. Then add the mascarpone and let the sauce warm without letting it boil.
5. Season with the zest of the lemon, some lemon juice and salt + pepper.
6. Add a little bit cooking water from the pasta to your sauce so you obtain a creamy consistency.
7. Gently stir in 300 g of walnuts and spoon the sauce together with broccoli + pasta.
8. Garnish with freshly grated pecorino or parmesan cheese.
9. Buon appetito!

Flair: what’s for dinner tonight?

Please, do try this at home

Dear readers,

I have some very exciting news to share with you. As from the beginning of December, my twin sister, Jasmina, and I will feature each week in a Belgian lifestyle magazine for women called ‘Flair‘ for wich we will cook easy and healthy dinners. 

Ever since we were little children, I remember us helping our father gardening. After his working hours, we could always find him in his garden, picking fresh treasures. We were always very glad we could help him with that. Afterwards, we learned the ways of cooking delicious meals with those garden fresh ingredients from our lovely mother. Nothing in the world beats that amazing taste of freshness. Therefore, we will try to make recipes with a focus on local and seasonal fresh ingredients + a taste of simplicity.

We will also recycle the food you basically have in your fridge, so that you don’t have to throw away those leftovers. Most importantly, we aim to introduce non-foodies to the joy of cooking and inspire foodies to try out our new recipes. The freedom we get from Flair enables us to share our passion for creating new dishes with food that inspires us. Delicious food does not have to be complicated nor unhealthy (:

We hope that you enjoy trying out our recipes as much as we had in inventing them.
