Pasta Farfelle with Pork

It took me 1 hour to prepare and cook this pasta dish. I choose farfelle made from organic wheat for the pasta and a selection of my husband favourite  Italian red wine called Ogio Primitivo. 
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 3

  • 250 grams of pasta farfelle
  • 350 grams lean pork fillet (thinly sliced and pounded)
  • 200 grams of mushrooms (sliced)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • pinch of saffron threads
  • 6 tablespoons double cream
  • 10 quail eggs (hard-boiled)
For the sauce, have the following ingredients ready:
  • 200ml red wine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato purée or tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oregano (finely chopped)

Procedure of cooking the sauce:
  1. Using a heavy -based saucepan, heat the oil and sauté  the onion until transparent.
  2. Add your choice of red wine, tomato sauce and oregano.
  3. Cook in low heat to reduce and set aside while you cook the pork.
Procedure in cooking the pork:
  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the pork for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Pour in the red wine sauce that you set aside.
  4. Cook in low heat for 20 minutes and stir occasionally.
  5. Add the double cream and cook for few minutes.
Procedure in cooking the pasta:
  1. While cooking the pork, boil water with salt in a large heavy-based saucepan.
  2. Put the lemon juice, saffron thread and farfelle pasta. Cook for 11-15 minutes or until tender (do not overcook the pasta so it won't be difficult to digest).
Serve in a warmed plate, top with the pork and sauce and garnish with the boiled quail eggs.

Bon Appetit!
