I’ve never been good in the kitchen. My culinary skills are limited to picking up my knife and fork. This year, I hope to change that a little. I am trying to learn how to cook and have challenged myself to make one thing a week. So far, I have made muffins that turned out like rock buns and steak – all by itself. On my list of new skills to learn is the art of folding and making a sauce to go with my lonely steak.
This week I tried out a creamy mushroom, asparagus and pea pasta sauce and…success! Edible! Quite yummy! Can make again!!
Melt a little butter in a large pan and gently cook some crushed garlic. Add as much mushroom, asparagus and green peas as you like and let that all cook down in the mushroom juice. Add a wee bit of stock (I used beef because it was all I had and it was good) and then some creme fraiche. Put some chopped green stuff in – I used rocket because my herb choice is limited but it was ok. Then mix the cooked pasta in – I used curly stuff because I had it, I am sure that a flatter pasta like the bow tie stuff would be better.
