Creamy Mushroom and Asparagus Pappardelle

A splash of white wine and a hint of nutmeg give this creamy pasta recipe the "OOH". Use any mushrooms you like in this pasta recipe - sliced chestnut, quartered shiitake, or halved button mushrooms all work well.

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the pasta and boil for 7 mins. Add the asparagus and boil for a further 3 mins until the asparagus and pasta are both tender. Drain in a colander.
  2. Whilst the pasta cooks, heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion and fry for 3 mins to soften. Stir in the garlic, add the mushrooms, season well, then cook, stirring for 2 mins.
  3. Add the wine and stir until it has evaporated.
  4. Stir in the Pour & More Single, and simmer for 4 minutes until the mixture boils and thickens. Add the nutmeg and then adjust the seasoning to taste.

Chicken and Pancetta Pie

Chicken thighs are so tasty compared with other cuts of chicken and become meltingly tender in this great family pie. With its smoky flavour, pancetta adds the 'OOH', but you could replace it with bacon if you prefer. A teaspoon of dried thyme and the zest of a lemon works equally well if you haven't any lemon thyme to hand.

INGREDIENTS

  • 80g diced smoked pancetta
  • 675g skinless chicken thigh fillets
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 125g chestnut mushrooms, sliced

  2. Stir in the garlic, mushrooms and thyme and fry together for a further 3 mins or so until everything is nicely soft. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 mins.
  3. Remove from the heat, add the thyme, the Pour & More Single and plenty of seasoning. Stir well and spoon into a 23cm pie dish and leave the filling to cool slightly.
  4. Unroll the pastry, cut 1cm wide strips from the edge of the pastry and attach this with a little water to the edge of the pie dish. Brush this with a little beaten egg or milk, then carefully lift the pastry on top. Press to seal the edges, then crimp together.
  5. Place on a baking tray, brush the top with beaten egg or milk and bake for 30 mins or until nicely browned. Serve with plenty of green vegetables.

  6. Aubergine: once cold, scoop the flesh from the aubergine into a blender, squeeze one garlic clove out of its paper skin and add to the bowl with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice; blitz until smooth. Add 25g of the cream cheese and 3 tablespoons of the Pour & More Single and briefly blitz again. Transfer to a bowl.
  7. Roast pepper and chickpea: peel the skin from the pepper and discard along with the core and seeds. Squeeze one roasted garlic clove out of its skin. Place the pepper in a blender with the garlic, the remaining chickpeas, a squeeze of lemon and plenty of seasoning. Blitz until smooth. Add 25g of the cream cheese and 3 tablespoons of the Pour & More Single and briefly blitz again. Transfer to a bowl.
  8. Roasted garlic: finally squeeze the last 2 roasted garlic cloves from their skins into a bowl, add the olive oil and use the back of a spoon to cream until smooth, add seasoning and a squeeze of lemon. Add the remaining cream cheese and Pour & More Single and beat until smooth.
  9. Serve the dips chilled with toast or pitta breads.

Caramelised Onion and Cheddar Quiche
