Nutty notes in pasta add a delicious extra layer of flavour – toasted hazelnuts work well with the smokiness of bacon.
Cured egg yolks are a great way to season pasta instead of using Parmesan. Once you’ve cured the yolks, they can be stored in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for up to three months. You can also substitute Parmesan with kelp powder, nutritional yeast flakes, ground sesame seeds and toasted breadcrumbs.
And you thought Marmite was just for buttery toast! This is a great pasta to whip up with pantry and fridge basics. Farfalloni – pasta shaped like butterflies or bowties – works well with light, flavour-packed sauces like this.
