It was when I was a guest of the Naylor-Leyland family near Peterborough that I had the idea for making this pasta filling from what food they had leftover in their kitchen. Pasta fillings are often made from other dishes. You just have to let your imagination and passion work. These particular little pasta parcels turned out to be delicious, according to the other guests!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g Fresh egg pasta
salt and pepper, to taste
60g parmesan, freshly grated

Filling

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons olive oil
400g minced pork, or pure pork sausage meat
2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
200g cooked brussels sprouts, left over from a previous meal
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
20g parmesan, freshly grated

Sauce

Quantity Ingredient
80g unsalted butter
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and fry the mince and garlic until brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and leave to cool. When cool, place in the goblet of your food processor and add the Brussels sprouts, nutmeg and Parmesan. Blend to obtain a paste. Taste for salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Roll out the pasta dough, by hand or machine, to a longish sheet of about 1.5mm thick. Make ravioli of about 2.5cm square, by hand, or using the raviolatrice.
  3. Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water for 5–6 minutes or until al dente. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, then add the rosemary and vinegar, and allow the butter to absorb the flavours for 2 minutes. Drain the pasta and add to the butter. Remove the rosemary. Toss to coat well. Divide the pasta between warmed plates and sprinkle with Parmesan.
