OMG Gino D'Acampo

I had a  little time at lunchtime on Thursday and found myself browsing the cookery and crafting mags in WH Smith.  The magazine that jumped out at me as being full of recipes I would like to cook was  'Woman and Home, Dinner Tonight'
I flipped through the magazine on my train ride home and was immediately struck by Gino D'Acampo, oh yes and by his recipes too (blush).  I remember when Gino was the new boy on UKTV Food's lunch time Good Food show.  I no longer subscribe to Sky so don't get to see Food TV - boo hoo!  But as it was the only thing I watched it wasn't good value for money.

Gino has a new book out, Gino's Pasta and shared a few of the recipes in the magazine article.

This recipe for Fettucine with sweet onions, rosemary and minced lamb struck me as something I would really enjoy.  It combines lamb mince with white wine, onions and grated carrots.  Now, I've always served red wine with lamb, so this recipe intruiged me.  And as Gino 'begged' me to try this recipe (he did really, it says so in the mag) I would have been rude not to give it a go.
Here is what my version of this recipe looked like.  It was light and very tasty, I enjoyed the lack of tomatoes and we had olive bread to sop up the juices.

There are lots more simple and delicious recipes in this magazine so I would recommend that you buy a copy before it disappears from the shops!  I am not getting paid to say this (unless, of course, W&H would like to pay me lol!) I just want to share a good buy with my blog buddies :)

Your pasta looks delicious. I love the fact that it is not at all heavy. More like stuffed ravioli in a broth but easier. I will give it a go. Thanks

Hey Janice, I love him too. It is a fabulous book. Did you see the recipe I posted from it the other day? Delicious!

Oh and while I am here, I would just like to tell you, that you won my Hotel Chocolat giveaway. So much for your diet, haha! Email me your full name and address.

That pasta looks lovely - I've had to virtually give up anything tomato based so always handy to discover new pasta recipes that taste great!!

My Sis in Law, who isn't the world's best advocate for spending time in the kitchen, loves Gino's books and has all of them. High praise indeed ... although maybe she hasn't bought them for the recipes lol

Your pasta looks delicious and begs to be tried. I know I'd love it. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
