How To Make Noodles With Salami Spinach Cream Sauce
Feel Free To Rate This Recipe
Do you ever have a feeling to have something new on your menu? Something which is made of noodles but then a different one from the classic spaghetti or macaroni? Well, this meal is my favorite of all the noodle recipes that I have tried because it is easy to make and you can even do it with your left over noodles from yesterdays´ meal.
You can use different kinds of noodles such as spaghetti, macaroni, spaghettini and spätzle (a German noodle from the south of Germany). I prefer spaghetti, spätzle or the best is Tagliatelle Tricolore noodles. But of course you can make this from your chosen noodles.
Tagliatelle Tricolore pasta is an Italian whole wheat flour sort of noodles which has three different colors. Orange, green and the normal light yellow. The orange color is the result of adding tomato powder color, the green from the color of spinach powder and the light yellow one has no added color at all.
- Frying pan
- Kitchen knife
- Chopping board
- A big pot
Serves 4 persons:
500 grams of noodles, any kind
1 clove of garlic or more if you wish
1 piece of onion cut in small cubes
1 tomato, cut into cubes(without skin, if you wish)
1/2 kilo fresh spinach or 500 grams frozen one
200 grams salami or bacon cut into stripes
400 grams whipping cream
2 tablespoons creme fraiche with herbs (sour cream)
1 chili, cut into stripes but without seeds
salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil is a must in my kitchen. It is so healthy and it is not only use for cooking but for caring my face and using this as an oil conditioner for my hair.
How to do it.
Boil a big pot of water for the noodles. Add a little salt to the water. When the water is boiling, put the Tagliatelle Tricolore noodles or any noodles you choose to cook in the water and follow the instruction of the cooking time of your pasta, 9 or 10 minutes.
Note: If you use fresh spinach, clean the leaves first with clear water and put them on the strainer so the remaining water can goes off the sink. If there is no fresh spinach, the frozen one is good as well and you don´t have to do the washing.
While your pasta is boiling, heat the frying pan on the stove. Put a few tablespoons of olive oil on the heated frying pan. When it is heated, sauté the pieces of garlic, onions and tomato cubes. Wait until the onions are glossy. Add the salami or bacon pieces and the chillies. Then put the spinach and mix them together. Let it cook for a few minutes until the spinach is done.
Add the whipping cream and let it cook for a minute and add the creme fraiche or the sour cream to the mixture. Continue cooking until the sauce has reduced a little and add the salt and pepper to taste. Add more salt and pepper if you want to.
I love using salami for my pasta sauce recipe. The taste of the salami makes this recipe hearty and delicious.
Put the cooked pasta on the strainer. Put one portion of the pasta on a deep plate and add the just finished Salami Spinach Cream sauce on the top of it. Sprinkle with fresh parsley. Boun Apetit!
