This pancetta, kale + Brussels sprout fettuccine is so easy to make it only takes 20 minutes from fridge to table! Fresh egg pasta tossed with white wine, tasty pancetta and greens make it as nutritious as it is tasty!
I am constantly feeling like I am in a state of never-having-enough-time-to-do-anything. Every day I am late up, late to work, late leaving work and often so tired by the time I get home, the idea of exercising or cooking a laborious meal has me jumping immediately on Delivery Hero and ordering butter chicken from my fav local Indian restaurant.
This happened so often that the owner actually called me on my personal mobile to thank me for my business. I must be putting his kids through school. THE SHAME!
Resolved to avoid this shameful encounter in the near future I thought I’d kick off an “Easy Dinner” recipe series. Meals that are wholesome, tasty, don’t have 1,567 ingredients and quick from fridge to table. No one has time to mess around with homemade curry pastes on a weeknight do they? If you do, then I am well jealous and want to come over for dinner!
This recipe could not be more simple. It has sprouts + kale because I had to sneak them in somewhere, fresh egg pasta because I can’t get enough of it, pancetta for that beautiful Mediterranean flavour, white wine, because hey – why not? And enough parmesan and black pepper to sink a small ship!
I’ve used egg pasta in this recipe because is my favourite but you can use whatever you like. If you are using egg pasta, remember it takes little to no time to cook. I suggest pulling your pasta our around 1 minute early as it will cook some in the pan.
I know I know it’s not the healthiest of dinners but it’s not all that bad either. Serve with crusty bread and a side salad (there you go, more greens there!).
