Romanian Culinary Recipes

Pasta with spinach and chicken
Finally, the fresh spinach market is full, so I couldn't resist the temptation to make a quick pasta recipe with spinach. Very good were the pasta itself, which was pasta with truffles, some delicacies not another! Until I forget, I have to tell you something about pasta, in the hope that in time we will correct a mistake that many people make, namely to drain the pasta under a stream of cold water. Wrong! We do this only and only if we use pasta for salad.

But if the pasta is served with the sauce, it is important to take them out of the water and drain them without cleaning them, because the starch that remains on the pasta helps a lot to stick the pasta sauce. And when it comes to starch, when making pasta sauce, do not throw the water in which they boiled, because it is full of starch and can be used to thicken any sauce, whether it is red or white. That being said, I took a stone from my heart and we can start the actual recipe, which I also presented to you on Antena 1 Cluj.

Ingredients for 4 servings:
- 200g pasta with truffles (or any kind of pasta you prefer)
- a large chicken breast (about 500g)
- 2 good hands of fresh spinach (100g)
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- 5 fresh mushrooms
- aromatic herbs (oregano, basil)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 150g grated cheese + cheese for topping
- 4 tablespoons olive oil

In a large pan, heat the olive oil, in which we put the finely chopped garlic. Do not leave the garlic in the oil for more than a minute, stirring constantly, because otherwise the garlic burns and becomes very bitter. Remove from the heat and put the chicken, cut into small cubes (the smaller you cut them, the faster they are made). We keep the pan on medium heat, stirring often, until the chicken completely changes color and is nicely browned. Season with salt, pepper and herbs, then add the mushrooms and spinach and sauté for a few more minutes, until the mushrooms are soft and the chicken is done (to taste). The mushrooms will leave the water, so the base for the sauce is already in the pan, all we have to put is a good polish from the water in which the pasta and the grated cheese will have been ground. Stir until we have a thick sauce and the cheese melts. Meanwhile, boil the pasta in 2 liters of water, respecting the cooking time on the package (for every 100g of pasta we need 1 liter of water, to boil properly), drain and the meal is ready!

That was all! A delicious meal in less than 30 minutes! If you want it to be a fasting recipe, all you have to do is skip the chicken and make the sauce only with spinach and mushrooms. May it be the best for you and I can't wait to show you the pasta recipes I learned in Italy! :)

Carbonara pasta with spinach and pine buds

I always appreciated the Italian cuisine for the simplicity, but also the freshness of the ingredients used. I often try to buy as many ingredients / foods from natural, controlled sources (in short, "from the country"), not only for health reasons, but also for taste.

… And when I get them, I prefer to highlight them in simple dishes, which highlight their "value".

I chose to make some Carbonara pasta (for the whole gang), for which I needed 500g of spaghetti (fine, no. 3), 2 whole eggs + 6 egg yolks (from the remaining egg whites you can make meringues), 200g of finely chopped bacon, 500 gr baby spinach, 50 gr. pine buds (or nuts), a cup of water in which they boiled pasta, a tablespoon of butter and 100 & # 8211 150 gr of finely grated cheese (Parmesan, I had smoked cheese "homemade").

I boiled the pasta (5 minutes), during which time I fried the bacon until it became crispy (like a jumper), after which I drained it on a few napkins.I fried the pine buds for 2-3 minutes until they took on color and I let them wait.

I prepared the pasta sauce from 2 eggs + 6 egg yolks, in which I mixed the finely grated cheese.

In a pan I melted a tablespoon of butter in which I put the spinach and hardened it for 20-30 seconds until it shrank. Then I added the cooked pasta and the cup of pasta water, stirring on the fire for 1-2 minutes. I turned off the heat and added the sauce, stirring constantly until all the mixture was bound.

To better combine the textures, I did not mix the bacon and pine buds in the pasta, but placed them separately.

This simple dish brings to light everything that is best in food - good, tasty ingredients that speak for themselves. They came out very, very good, an occasion that I recommend to you as well, when you run out of ideas - keep it simple - use what you like!
