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.

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.

Zucca al Forno con Peperoncino e SalviaRoasted Squash with Chilli and Sage Crumbs

I don’t about know you, but I sometimes get bored of always having potatoes with my main meal. I created this in order to still have a substantial side dish, but with more exciting colours and flavours. Try this recipe with pumpkin when it is in season and you can use Parmesan cheese instead of Pecorino.
