Best known for creating delightful recipes from the bare essentials everyone has in their pantry, not to mention her amusing mispronunciation of the word microwave, Nigella Lawson has captured hearts and filled mouths around the world with her clever creations. And her latest recipe is a a clear standout.
Rallying massive support and fanfare from her 2.6 million Instagram followers, Nigella’s recent Recipe of the Day was a Hearty Wholewheat Pasta with Brussels Sprouts, Cheese and Potatoes – a double-carb hit that’s sure to go down a treat.
Sharing that the dish was “inspired by pizzoccheri”, an Italian buckwheat pasta recipe hailing from Valtellina in Italy, Nigella’s meal features penne pasta, potatoes, ricotta, Brussels sprouts and Parmesan cheese.
The carb-loaded dinner delight wowed Nigella fans, with one saying, “Ooh this sounds like a really tasty combination I’d never have thought to put together.”
Another said, “Love Brussels sprouts and my kids do too!”
While one claimed, “I need this in my life!”
One fan wrote, “That is absolute comfort food. Brussel sprouts and all. Yum. I might add chilli flakes to it though.”
Another shared, “That looks and sounds smashing. Can the humble sprout really elicit an ireful response? I daresay it can, just as it seems anything can. Luckily I’ve loved them since little and was pleased to discover through recent experimentation that, shredded, they make tasty pakoras too.”
It seems Nigella herself agreed, saying, “It is not quite normal to feel as joyous as I do when saying the words ‘Brussels sprouts’, but this recipe does not merely use said much-denigrated ingredient, it also celebrates it.”
