Saving at home – Tagliatelle with aromatic herbs

Did it ever happen to you to be with the empty pantry because the supermarkets were closed, or more recently with the lock-down, or even out of laziness?

If you have mixed spices (I use fresh ones because I have them on my balcony, but you can also use dried ones), this recipe is for you.

Another advantage of this recipe? It will only take you 15 minutes to prepare it!


Ingredients 4-6 people: 500 g noodles – 200 ml cooking cream – 100 g butter, – 50 g grated parmesan cheese – 2/3 sprigs sage – 2/3 sprigs marjoram – 2/3 sprigs oregano – 2/3 sprigs thyme – 1 small onion – salt and pepper – a few leaves of parsley for decoration (optional)

Cook the pasta in abundant salted water.

Finely chop the onion and brown it in butter in a large pan, put the aromatic herbs in the mixer to finely chop them and add them to the onion, cook for one minute and then add the cream, lower the heat and continue cooking for one or two minutes; if the sauce is too thick, add 50 ml. of liquid cream (if you don’t have it, you can replace it with whole milk).

Salt, pepper and add the pasta, pour the grated Parmesan cheese, mix, add a few leaves of parsley as decoration and serve.

Enjoy your meal!
