Today a first course as easy as tasty: pasta with potatoes, artichokes and Roe. The other day, for dinner, I prepared again one of my favorite dishes, the artichokes stewed with potatoes, to which usually match the eggs. While I was eating, myself, I started thinking about a pasta with the same ingredients. Said, done. The result of this experiment is this pasta with potatoes, artichokes and, to add flavor and enrich the dish, mullet roe. Obviously sarda, given that family I have a fast track. But the dish is great even without roe and with plenty of Parmesan or pecorino. The potatoes and artichokes I cooked separately and then mixing the sauce with parsley and United them a little’ pecorino cheese. To give a crisp note I added chopped toasted almonds. I wanted to use a short pasta that I caught as soon as I saw it, the curls, but I think this sauce would work very well with a long pasta with egg, such as fettuccine. If you omit the ROE, It's a great first vegetarian, very quick and tasty. Is, clearly, without the cheese also becomes a vegan pasta where the lack of animal proteins, I assure you, you will not feel at all: rely on abundant ground black pepper. If you like, dates also a look at all my RECIPES WITH ARTICHOKES. Have a good day!
