Okay, so this isn't really a recipe, as such. It's more of a chuck-it-together-and-hope-it-tastes-alright kind of dish that I made, and when it did turn out tasting alright, I decided to share it with you on my blog.
For this pasta sauce, you'll need:
:: Baby spinach, a couple of handfuls
:: 2-3 Shallots
:: 5-6 Mushrooms
:: A good knob of butter
:: Grated tasty cheese, a few handfuls
:: Salt & pepper to taste
:: Cornflour & water, to thicken
Now you'll have to:
::Roughly chop the spinach, shallots, mushrooms and saute them gently in the butter. Let them cook down for a few minutes, until they're all nicely wilted.
::Now add some cream and milk (enough milk to make the amount of sauce required, within in reason), season with salt and pepper, turn the heat up a little, and leave it there to do it's thing, stirring occasionally. Now's also a good time to put some pasta on to cook.
::Once the sauce starts to boil, turn it down a little, and whisk in the cheese. Then thicken it up with some cornflour, bring to the boil and it's done! Serve over pasta - serves four for lunch or as a side dish.
What kind of cook are you? Do you have to follow a recipe precisely or are you a mished-mashed cook, who's food tastes great anyway?
I have been known to panic in the kitchen. I've also been known to be breezy and invent my own recipes.
So I think I'm a little of both.
How about you?
