My Grandma gave me a few of her cookbooks when I was first married.
I guess she thought I needed to learn how to cook - She was right!
I absolutely loved the Anne Willan's Look and Cook books because they give step by step directions with illustrations for each step. I really needed that when I began cooking.
This recipe for Straw Hay Pasta came from one of her books. Of course she mades the noodles from scratch - I just buy the noodles at the store.
Straw Hay Pasta
Sauté one medium white onion in butter
Add diced mushrooms
4 oz of ham, chopped
(you can order a salad slice of ham from deli so it is nice and thick and ready to chop).
3/4 cup of sweet peas
Sauté these items a few more minutes.
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tbs honey
black pepper to taste
finely grated parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top
Bring sauce to a boil and then let simmer about 3-4 minutes.
Serve over Fettichini Noodles
I think I will submit this recipe to Ruth for her Weekly Presto Pasta Night Event.
