Homemade Tagliatelle with Rocket Pesto and Mini Broccoli and Cauliflower Florets

It’s good to be back, and as promised here is a recipe that uses both the leftover homemade pasta and the pesto from my previous blogs. It’s been a long day, we were up for our flight at 3:30am and arrived home at 2:30pm and now the unpacking, washing, napping and eating is complete I finely have time to blog. If there is one thing that I learnt from this recipe is that homemade pasta is absolutely golden! This tagliatelle may not look like much but it was so smooth and silky and just melted in the mouth. I think I will be making a lot more pasta from now on!

  1. Oh that looks so good! I have also started making homemade pasta. It’s true, it looks different, but it tastes awesome! I have fetuccini down and am now working on spagetti! Quite a technique! But fun!

    • Ha, thank you (I think)

      My twitter should be homemadewithmes, although I’m not such an expert on Twitter and haven’t really got to grips with it. If you can’t find me I will try and find you 😀
