TOMATO, BUFFALO MOZZARELLA, BROWN BUTTER PASTA WITH A WALNUT CRUNCH
Here is the perfect pasta to share with just the right balance of decadent and wholesome.
350g tomatoes on the vine
120g buffalo mozzarella
100g unsalted butter
½ cup sage leaves, chopped
300g tagliatelle pasta
For the walnut crunch:
½ cup walnuts
¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Start with the walnut crunch by place all the ingredients in a pan and heat slowly, stirring frequently until the sugar has dissolved and cook for 2 -3 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour out onto a non-stick silicone mat or baking paper.
Pan-fry the tomatoes in a pan heated high with a little olive oil until slightly charred.
In a saucepan, add the butter and cook on a medium heat until it begins to brown. Then add your herbs and remove from the heat.
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente. Drain and place in a serving bowl. Pour the browned butter over the pasta. Top with roasted tomatoes and tear over the buffalo mozzarella. Crumble over the walnut crunch and serve.
