Conchigle Rigate Piccanti
Shell Pasta With Spicy Pork And Tomato Sauce

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious pork recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my shell pasta with spicy pork and tomato sauce for you to enjoy.

I love this shape of pasta and this sauce is perfect for it. The delicate taste of the pork with the strong flavours of the chilli, olives and sun-dried tomatoes is a match made in heaven. I know that most people add cheese to pasta sauces but please don’t to this one. It really doesn’t need it and will actually ruin the natural flavours of the ingredients. If you fancy, substitute the conchiglie rigate with rigatoni.

Mousse Di Cioccolato Bianco E Pepe NeroWhite Chocolate Mousse with Black Pepper & Fresh Mint

I know that this may sound very strange to you, using black pepper in a white chocolate mousse, but believe you me, this is a dessert that all your friends will talk about. This recipe is easy, very tasty and definitely has the 'wow' factor, but make sure you use a good quality chocolate. You can also serve it straight from the freezer like a semi-freddo.

Zuppa Di Porri E RucolaLeek, Potato And Rocket Soup

One of my favourite British recipes has to be leek and potato soup. Such a simple recipe but with a unique balance of flavours. I decided to add rocket leaves to this fantastic soup, which adds a peppery flavour to the dish. Do serve this soup with my home-made garlic croutons, you are going to love it! Make sure that the consistency of the soup is not too runny and use fresh leeks for the best results.

Capesante brasate con piselli e pomodori secchiBraised scallops with peas and sun-dried tomatoes

I adore scallops and must admit that I don’t like to interfere by adding too many ingredients that will alter their natural flavour, but I really think this recipe is special. It is so simple and quick to prepare and is very flexible in terms of being great as a dinner for one, or a starter or a main at a dinner party. You can replace the pancetta with chorizo if you prefer, and of course...

I absolutely love tarts and it’s a shame that not many people cook them anymore, maybe because it is thought to be quite a difficult dish to prepare. Some of my friends have tried this dish and they say that it’s definitely one of the easiest and tastiest tart recipes that they have ever made. I often choose this kind of recipe when I have a dinner party because if there is any left over, I’ll...

Pizza con zucca voilina, cipolla rossa, cavolo nero, Dolcelatte e nociButternut Squash, Red Onion, Cavolo Nero & Dolcelatte Pizza With Walnuts

I wanted to try something different from a traditional pizza topping and I’m glad I did, as this pizza is delicious. The sweetness of the butternut squash works perfectly with the earthy cavolo nero, and the walnuts give added texture. When making this pizza for my vegan friends, I use a little tomato pizza sauce on the base and pile on all the other toppings minus the Dolcelatte. Serve with a green...

Paccheri ai quattro formaggiPaccheri with Four Cheeses

Originating from Campania and Calabria, paccheri is a popular pasta shape in the region of Marche. When filming there I made this dish using a selection of delicious cheeses. This is a tasty and filling meal that’s really easy to make – it’s my version of a posh macaroni cheese! If you can’t find paccheri you can use large rigatoni for this recipe. If scamorza is unavailable, use a mixture...
