  • Step 5/15

    Peel and cut shallot in half

    Cut towards the root but not through. Curling fingers. One in front, two behind. Control, not speed.

  • Step 7/15

    Cut horizontal to dice the rest of the shallot. Repeat for the other half. (Shallot is optional - I took a chance and added it on a whim and it worked nicely).

    Melt a knob of butter and gently sweat and fry the shallots - don’t colour them, keep the heat medium to low.

    Get a saucepan of salted water boiling and add your tagliatelle as per the packet instructions- (cook for one minute less).

    Add your cut sage to the meat and stir around a little. You might want to add a little more butter here and season with pepper. You don’t need to add salt as the meat is salty and the pasta is cooked in salt.
