Tagliatelle with Vegetables and Lemon
150g Fresh homemade tagliatelle
1 leek, trimmed, halved and cut into fine strips
1 carrot, topped and tailed, cut into fine strips
8 asparagus spears, woody stems removed and stalk peeled
1 courgette, topped and tailed, cut into fine strips
50g frozen peas
50g frozen broad beans
125ml white wine
salt and pepper
a pinch of torn basil
a pinch of torn parsley
juice of half a lemon
slice of lemon
In a pan warm a lug of olive oil over a medium heat, once warmed add all the vegetables and lightly cook, stirring all time to prevent any colouring.
Cook pasta in plenty of boiling salted water.
Add the wine to the vegetables and allow to reduce and burn of the alcohol, reduce the heat and put a lid on the pan and allow the vegetables to stew in the wine for a couple of minutes. Add the lemon juice and stir together.
By now the pasta should be cooked so lift pasta from water with tongs and add the the vegetables, toss the pasta together with the vegetables so pasta becomes coated in the cooking liquid.
Place pasta on a plate, scatter with the basil, parsley and Parmesan. Garnish with wedge of lemon. Drizzle with olive oil and enjoy.
