Light and creamy and a great way to get your greens!
450 g spaghetti
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups mixed greens, packed
salt and pepper
1 cup mascarpone cheese
3/4 cup toasted pecans
1 cup 10% cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp lemon zest
Gently toast the pecans and minced garlic in olive oil and butter, not letting the garlic get brown.
Stir lemon juice and zest into mascarpone and add to the pecans and garlic on low heat. Stir well as it will melt almost right away, then add the cream and parmesan.
Roughly chop the greens and incorporate into the sauce. Heat through on medium low heat and add salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish with more toasted pecans, parmesan and I like a few more grinds of black pepper too.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
