Feast your eyes on the finest pork loin with white wine and sage pesto! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Wash the sage leaves and place in a food processor with the almonds, garlic, cheese and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Blitz for 20 seconds to create a smooth sage pesto.
  2. Use a sharp knife to make small cuts on the edges of the pork slices to prevent them from curling when you cook them.
  3. Spread the sage pesto on eight of the slices of pork and cover with the remaining eight, creating a sandwich effect.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and fry the pork ‘sandwiches’ on one side for 2–3 minutes. Turn the meat over and continue to cook for a further 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour in the wine and continue to cook for 4 minutes, turning the meat at least once more.
  6. Serve immediately, allowing two ‘sandwiches’ per portion and accompany with your favourite crispy salad.

Linguine Alla AmatricianaLinguine With Cherry Tomatoes, Pancetta And White Wine

With no doubt, I have to dedicate this recipe to my friend and manager Jeremy Hicks. We have known each other for seven years now and without fail he has to have this pasta dish at least once a week. I actually agree with him, it's one of my favourites too, because I just love the combination of the onion, pancetta and chilli. If you prefer, you can substitute linguine with spaghetti or tagliatelle.

Petti di Pollo al Mascarpone, Salvia e LimeChicken Breasts in Creamy Sage & Lime Sauce

Chicken breasts are such a great option for an easy, quick and healthy midweek supper and this creamy sauce has a fabulous citrus kick. I like to serve this with a simple crisp green salad and some boiled new potatoes or – even better – my Mushroom Rice.

Torta di Polenta con Arance e CointreauPolenta Cake with Oranges & Cointreau

This is such a beautiful cake to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of coffee or tea. Alternatively, serve it with a dollop of mascarpone on the side as a dessert. My kids, however, won’t thank me for this recipe as they think every dessert should be about chocolate! You can substitute the Cointreau with a citrusy Limoncello if you prefer.

Bruschetta Fai Da TeBuild Your Own Beef Bruschetta

Half the pleasure of food is being able to enjoy it with your friends and family. I love dishes that can be placed in the centre of the table so that everybody can help themselves. It's the most social form of eating and it means I'm not stuck in the kitchen! This recipes cooks the beef from scratch, but if you have any leftover roast beef from a Sunday roast by all means use that.

Torta Al CaffeCoffee and Ricotta Tart

Every Italian loves coffee but I have decided to dedicate this recipe to my good friend Peter Andre. I have never met another man that loves coffee more than I do, so this delicious coffee and ricotta tart is especially for those of you who are like us. The creamy ricotta cheese paired with the strong coffee is amazing.
