farfalle-red-pepper-sauce-266x266

It’s great over steamed fish and equally tasty over roasted garlic and courgettes.

Ingredients

  • 350g farfalle
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 100ml white wine
  • 2 red peppers, roasted and chopped
  • 50g crème fraîche
  • 200ml fresh cream
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g ricotta salata (or feta), crumbled, to serve
  • chives, to garnish

Directions

1 Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package.

2 In the meantime, prepare the sauce. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over a low heat and sauté the shallots until softened. Add the tomato purée and cook for 1 minute. Add the white wine and cook for a further 2–3 minutes. Add the roasted peppers and cook for 1–2 minutes, then stir in the crème fraîche and cream.

3 Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Remove half the sauce and blend it to a purée, then mix both back together again. Season to taste.

4 Toss the drained, cooked pasta into the sauce, sprinkle over the crumbled ricotta salata and garnish with some chive lengths on top.

KEEPING IT LOCAL: THIS SAUCE IS ESPECIALLY TASTY SPOONED OVER STUFFED LOCAL FREE-RANGE CHICKEN BREASTS WRAPPED WITH LOCAL DRY CURED BACON.
