Insalata calda di manza con carciofi, peperoncino e noci
Warm Beef Salad With Artichokes, Chilli & Walnuts

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious beef recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my warm beef salad with artichokes, chilli & walnuts for you to enjoy.

Sardinia is famous for its beef, particularly that of the bue rosso (red cow), which grazes the pastures of the volcanic Montiferru area in central-western Sardinia and is considered by many to provide the finest beef in Italy. For this recipe I have taken the theme of a traditional Sardinian beef salad and have added artichokes and walnuts – which really complement the juicy sides of warm beef fillet – plus fresh chilli to provide a little extra kick. Serve with Sardinian flatbread (which you can find on page 108 on Gino’s Islands in the Sun!

My Mother’s LasagneLasagne di Mamma

This recipe has been handed down in the D’Acampo family for many generations, though I call it ‘Lasagne di Mamma’ because my mother taught it to my sister and me when we were about  11 years old . It's a great tradition that my wife will pass on to our own children. Allowing the dish to rest for a good 10 minutes before serving allows the layers to firm up slightly and become easier to cut neatly.

Linguine con acciughe, peperoncino e aglioLinguine with Anchovies, Chilli & Garlic

In Italy this would traditionally have been served as an inexpensive dish to feed a crowd. It's still a great standby recipe, using ingredients that can mostly be found in store cupboards but which together create something that has great flavours and textures. The gentle kick from the chilli and crunch from freshly toasted breadcrumbs really makes my mouth water! All it needs as an accompaniment is...

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.

Orecchiette con Calamari e ChorizoPasta Shells and Beans with Squid and Chorizo

I absolutely love squid and to me there is no better way to cook it than with a nice spicy chorizo sausage. This is a pasta dish that would be perfect for a party because the flavours and the colours are just amazing. If you prefer you can substitute the parsley leaves with fresh mint but whatever you do, please make sure that you use fresh squid.

Pasta e fagioliHearty Bean Stew with Pasta

This is a fantastic recipe for when you need a ‘quick-fix’ supper – most of the ingredients are dried or tinned, so it’s likely you’ll have them in your storecupboard, and very little chopping or other preparation is required. Beans and chickpeas are an inexpensive, low-fat source of protein, fibre and vitamins, so this dish is both healthy and economical. For vegetarians, simply omit the...
