This is a pretty simple dish, just meatballs with pasta. I’m using a different type of pasta called the pappardelle, which is a much wider version of the fettuccine. They are typically used for dishes with a thick sauce, such as wild boar ragu.
This is also the first time I’m trying out fennel in the pasta sauce, as you can see below.
For all of that long name, it actually just means something like “Amalfi baked lemons”. This is actually an appetizer that I picked up from watching Jamie Oliver’s Great Italian Escape. He planned to use it for his Italian mentor’s father but the clay oven was too random and spoiled them.
Nonetheless I decided to try them out as an appetizer for my friends because it seems rather easy to make. 1 lemon will serve 2 persons as you just need a lemon halve for each serving. I used a juicer to get rid of the pulp and used the juice to make iced lemon tea, so as not to waste it.
Today Isetan supermarket had an European Food Fair so I just had to go down to get some rare stuff that I definitely wouldn’t be able to find normally. And boy was I right!
Dried porcini mushrooms! You can’t get these in Singapore at all. In fact it’s quite hard to find outside of Italy but they brought in some for the fair. I have to say they were rather expensive though.
Tonight’s dinner will be a chicken parmesan recipe
First I seasoned the chicken breasts with some paprika, black pepper, salt, garlic powder and oregano.
Then I mixed some milk and egg, dipped the breasts in it, and then dipped them again into another bowl with bread crumbs.
