Bacon and Parsnip Pasta


I've been thinking of using parsnip with pasta for a while, but just hadn't come up with the right way of doing it, then I came across this Jamie Oliver recipe and I earmarked it for the weekend.

I personally think he's got the proportions a bit wrong, too much bacon and not enough parsnip, plus I think it was a little too oily, but that might just be my generous hand with the butter.

Either way, I definitely think I'm onto a winner and I love this way of cooking parsnips in long thin strips, I actually think it could work quite well in some sort of carbonara or with creme fraiche and pine nuts.

Definitely something to add to the (growing) parsnip repertoire.

That's a really interesting idea, I can imagine the flavours work well together. I love parsnips.

MMMM. love the addition of bacon and the short/fat pasta. we do ours in long strips (parsnips) along w/ fettucine or linguine. the looks fabulous.
