Beggars' Linguine - French Fridays with Dorie
A mixture of pasta, pistachios, almonds, figs, raisins, Parmesan and orange, to my way of thinking, have nothing to do with each other. Although, I like pasta with nuts, figs and raisins just did not belong. As it turned out, I had no figs, which is a major ingredient, but it still ended up going together beautifully. I also could not see the Parmesan which ended up giving it the salty taste, it needed.
You can find this recipe on page 171 in Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan. I enjoy this book as much for the vignettes as for the recipes. Stop by French Fridays with Dorie FFwD to see what the other participants made.
