Healthy Comfort Food

Healthy Comfort Food

Some weekends are slower. You just want to stay at home, wrapped in a soft blanket, eating some comfort food and binge-watching your favourite series. 

In our minds comfort food is linked to pasta and we just found a delicious but also healthy recipe to prepare. It's also just another yummy way to eat some seeds -the main inspiration behind our Sporos FW1718 Collection!

 

INGREDIENTS

(for 6 servings)

Kosher salt
12 ounces dried tagliatelle or pappardelle pasta or wide egg noodles (may substitute 16 ounces fresh pasta)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 medium cloves garlic, cut into very thin slices
1 1/2 ounces (about 5 3/4 tablespoons) poppy seeds
1 1/2 ounces (scant 6 tablespoons) ground walnuts
Finely grated zest of 1 or 2 lemons (2 teaspoons)
 
 
 
DIRECTIONS

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions. Drain and place in a serving bowl.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for a few minutes, stirring, until it is lightly golden. Add the poppy seeds; cook for 1 minute to release their fragrance, then add the ground nuts and salt to taste. Cook for 1 minute, then pour over the pasta. Sprinkle the lemon zest on top and toss to coat evenly.

Divide the pasta among individual wide, shallow bowls. Serve immediately.

Enjoy!
