Pasta all’Ortolana (“Greengrocer’s Pasta”) derives its name, with neither contention nor complexity, from the simple fact that it is full of vegetables, much like a well-stocked greengrocer. The vegetables used in the preparation of pasta all’ortolana can vary across Italy, depending on what is local and in season, but most typically includes melanzane, or aubergine, which is a tradition we gladly uphold here.
In this limited edition plant-based filling, we bring you a salubrious selection of verdure including courgette, red pepper, onion and aubergine. We’ve also included vegan cheese in the filling, giving it a lovely savoury flavour, as well as lots of heady rosemary and garlic. Serve with our signature wild rocket sauce, which, like the greengrocer’s ravioli, are entirely plant-based.
Note: Please consume or freeze our pasta and sauces within 2 days of delivery.
- Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Salt the water (around ½tbsp per litre).
- Cook the pasta in the boiling water for around 3 minutes.
- Whilst the pasta cooks, put the pesto in a large bowl. Add 1tsp of the boiling cooking water to loosen and stir it through.
- Once cooked, transfer the pasta to the pesto. Toss gently to coat.
- Serve immediately. Buon appetito!
