So to say I loved this pasta dish is an understatement. It was absolutely delicious and and as a bonus, extremely simple and straightforward.
Pine Nut Brown Butter Pasta
Adapted from Off The Shelf
by Donna Hay
Cook one pound of pappardelle or fettucine until al dente, then drain. Melt 5 -6 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan then add 1/2 cup pine nuts to the pan and simmer until the pine nuts are golden. Add pepper and salt and toss through the hot pasta. Finish with grated Parmesan and serve as a simple meal or side dish.
Oh yum! This sounds like such a great combination of simple ingredients - I love brown butter!ReplyDelete
Good to know that this is a winner. I planned to make this over the weekend--of course plans went out the door. Typical. Soon, though. Very soon. I like pine nuts, think that brown butter is one of the best inventions ever, and remember you fondly posting about toasted pine nuts. I can't miss this one, can I?ReplyDelete
Sometimes simple is best and this dish looks like a perfect example of that.ReplyDelete
I always liked pine nuts, but once you and Ottolenghi turned me onto buttered pine nuts, my affections for them took on a whole new meaning. I totally have to try this recipe - I love something that is so simple, but which tastes spectacular because of that simplicity. Think I might push the boat out a bit and make some homemade pappardelle for this.ReplyDelete
I am amazed by how simple this is! The buttery pine nuts are definitely my kind of sauce. Love those guys.ReplyDelete
Mmm.. this is perfect. I have had this one tagged to make and I am glad to see and hear that it is as fabulous as it looks. ;-)ReplyDelete
Perfect comfort food. I love the simplicity & the butter!ReplyDelete
I love pine nuts, and this sounds simple and yum! Pine nuts are so darn expensive, it is one of the most expensive nuts around here! So whenever a recipe calls for pine nuts, I would use them sparingly! LOL! Whenever I toast them for a recipe, got to stop myself from popping them in my mouth! And I only have a couple of tablespoons left in my pantry!ReplyDelete
This has been on my short list for a while. Glad to know it is good.ReplyDelete
