As delicious as they are, there are only so many turkey, cranberry and stuffing sandwiches you can stomach after Christmas before you’re looking for something else to dress up the leftovers.
So I whipped up this quick pasta, which tasted great and had bags of flavour.
Pea, prosciutto & turkey pasta
Preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes
What you’ll need to feed 2
- 6 strips thinly sliced prosciutto
- 1 turkey breast (leftovers)
- 2/3 cup frozen peas
- 2 spring onions
- 4 cloves garlic
- Splash red win vinegar
- Pasta (I used bowties)
How to make it
Get some water boiling away in a medium-sized pot on the stove. Thinly slice the garlic and spring onions and cut the prosciutto into thin ribbons. Get a tablespoon of olive oil heated in a pan and throw in the chopped garlic, onions and prosciutto. Check how long your pasta takes to cook and get it into the water. Back to the pan, toss the onions, garlic and prosciutto around until things are getting brown and crispy, then pour in the splash of red win vinegar. It’ll deglaze the pan and add some zing to proceedings. Put the peas into the pan frozen and toss them around with everything else until they’re softened but not mushy. Drain your pasta, and stir through everything in the pan. Lastly, throw in a pinch of Italian spices (basil, oregano, marjoram - you can buy these pre-mixed at many supermarkets), tear up the turkey and add that.
Was a welcome change to turkey sandwiches. If you decide to cook it let me know in the comments and we can work out how to improve it together :)
2012 is shaping up to be the year of the city.
This project from the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at the University College London is a dashboard that displays a single, open overview of almost all available data streams across eight different cities.
It’s all part of the smart city movement, which looks to bring data around environmental and social capital into the urban policy and planning process.
And 2012 is also the first year that the TED Prize didn’t go to a person. Instead, the TED Prize for 2012 went to a thing - The City 2.0
I spoke at Vibewire’s fastBREAK event at the start of the year on how we can all nurture our creative and imaginative capabilities and put them to use on the things that matter most.
The CASA dashboard project starts to show how we can take real-time urban data streams and use them to come up with creative solutions to the most challenging issues in our cities: public disorder, crime, and homelessness.
I’m looking forward to seeing the reinvention of our cities kick into gear in 2012.
The thing I love most about it is that she takes such incredible photos that really capture Marshall’s happy-go-lucky personality. The Tiny Sartorialist is a fantastic record of how joyous and delightful our family life is, and for that I’m really grateful.
And today The Huffington Post recognised just how awesome Karla and Marshall are by featuring a gallery of photos of Marshall from The Tiny Sartorialist. You can check out the full gallery over on the Huffington Post Parents section.
Really proud of Karla and really happy to be able to share the fun with more people.
