Parsnip and pancetta tagliatelle with parmesan and butter
An unusual, brilliant combo
“Who'd have thought these two would make such great friends? And pasta is just the start… ”
Parsnip and pancetta together are slightly unusual but make a bloody good combo. Since discovering how well they work I've been using them in soups, risottos, roasts and casseroles.
In a large, non-stick frying pan, fry your pancetta and herbs in the olive oil for 2 minutes, then add the garlic and parsnips. Cook for a further 3 minutes on a medium heat, until the pancetta is slightly golden and the parsnips have softened nicely. Cook your tagliatelle in salted boiling water according to packet instructions, then drain, reserving a little of the cooking water. Mix the pasta with the parsnips and pancetta and stir in the butter and the Parmesan, adding a little of the cooking water to loosen the mixture and make it creamy and shiny. Season to taste.
