Spaghetti con Fegatini di Pollo: Presto Pasta Nights



This is my first ever submission to the long-running Presto Pasta Nights. For 221 rounds Ruth at Once Upon A Feast and a bunch of guest hosts have been doing a summary of all that is great and good in the pasta blogosphere.

This week's is being hosted by Helen at Fuss Free Flavours, so I am sending my spaghetti con fegatini di pollo (chicken liver spaghetti) over to her for the round up tomorrow.

I used this Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall recipe, although as it was a mid-week meal I didn't have time to make my own fettucini! And I don't know about serving 6-8 people - that quantity of sauce on 500g spaghetti (raw weight) served the two of us with two portions of leftovers for the following day. Anyway, it was thoroughly delicious. And a very easy way into offal if you are not sure about that sort of thing!

Comfort food at its best

Presto pasta is such a good idea! I am a complete sucker and always make my three favourites - amatriciana, puttanesca or con le sardo or some kind of basic garlicy oniony red sauce. This looks like a really good way to broaden your dinner-horizons
