The sauce was a purée of cavolo nero with lots of spicy green new season's olive oil stirred into it. Well I have to say it was one of the most brilliant pasta sauces I have ever tasted and since eating it, I have made it many many times.

Theo Randall

Italian sausages are very special as they tend to be made with a combination of fresh pork and cured, so they have the addition of fennel seed, nutmeg and other seasonings. This gives them huge amounts of flavour so they are perfect to use in a pasta sauce.

Recipe of the Week: Asparagus 'Carbonara' Linguine

Theo Randall | Posted 16.07.2014 | UK Lifestyle

This dish shouldn't take longer than about 10 minutes as you are cooking the asparagus in the water with the pasta. This is a meat free dish but would work if you wanted to finish off with crispy pancetta. Have a great week!

Recipe of the Week: Tagliatelle With Italian Sausage, Swiss Chard and Chilli

Theo Randall | Posted 02.07.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

Italian sausages are delicious in a pasta sauce as they are a combination of fresh and cured pork with seasoning so they are almost like a seasoned mince. Adding the swiss chard to the sauce gives it more texture and is a great way to use chard stalks.

Recipe of the Week: Tagliarini With Brown Shrimps and Zucchini

Theo Randall | Posted 28.05.2014 | UK Lifestyle

This is such a simple pasta dish but very delicious. When you make it you will definitely want to make it again. The brown shrimps have a very unique flavour and combined with the zucchini butter and garlic taste even better.

Recipe of the Week: Tagliatelle With Bresaola Radicchio and Rosemary

Theo Randall | Posted 30.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a great way to use bresaola with pasta and also a good substitute for pancetta. The meatiness of the bresaola works really well with the bitterness of the radicchio. You could use a pasta like penne but tagliatelle is a bit more luxurious and holds the sauce really well.

Recipe of the Week: Tagliarini With Artichokes and Prawns

Theo Randall | Posted 09.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

This is a really tasty pasta and surprisingly easy to make once you have prepared your artichokes. The trick is to make the artichokes very juicy so the pasta absorbs their flavour. Always use uncooked prawns as they will give you a much sweeter flavour and also a better texture.

Recipe of the Week: Pappardelle with Clams, Prawns and Swordfish

Theo Randall | Posted 26.03.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Theo Randall

I have had a similar dish to this in a fantastic restaurant in Puglia, southern Italy. The town is Ostuni and the restaurant is called Aqua Sale. They used a pasta called pacceri which is a large tube pasta that flattens when it is cooked and therefore traps all the sauce.

Recipe of the Week: Fusilli With Broccoli, Chilli, Anchovies and Garlic
