Tagliatelli Alla Nathalia

What are your childrens´ favorite pasta dishes ? Would love to hear all about it here on this thread ...

One of my younger daughter Nathalia´s favourite pasta dishes, thus, I decided to post it ... Hope that you enjoy too ...


200 grams of Ceps or other spring seasonal mushrooms

100g Proscuitto di Parma

150g of cream

A shot glass of Italian or Spanish Brandy

Ribbon Pasta ( fettuccini, tagliatelli etcetra )

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Evoo ( tblsp per person ) and a bit of creamy Butter French style

1) in sartén or sauté pan: heat butter with the Evoo
2) sauté the mushrooms and ham in julienne strips until tender
3) stir occasionally
4) stand back and put hair in ponytail ... and bathe and flambée the mushrooms and ham in the Brandy
5) salt and pepper and toss
6) sprinkle fresh parsley or herbs of choice
7) boil pasta to tender yet firm to bite
8) slowly place the drained in strainer ribbon pasta in bowls and drizzle the sauce with mushrooms and Proscuitto onto the ribbon pasta
9) grate Reggiano Parmesano and / or Pecorino ( to liking )

Serve with hot crusty bread and Prosecco or red Italian Barolo ...

Happy Easter,
Kind regards.
Margi Cintrano.

Josie and Kadesma,

Happy Easter Ladies and thank you for your posting your views ...

Kademsa: I can eat pasta literally every day ! I love pasta ...

Josie: My daughter loves this one ... Thanks for compliments ...

The Vet and I eat home made pasta every Saturday in Madrid, and I eat it out once or twice a week --- laboral lunch ...

It is very versatile ... and we enjoy it ... The Vet is Italian
and thus, he too can eat it daily and never complain !

This is good ...
