Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Sardine and chilli fettuccine with pine nuts and lemon


You'll need

80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 50 gm pine nuts ½ cup each coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley and oregano 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 1 long red chilli, thinly sliced 12 marinated butterflied sardines, coarsely torn (see note) Finely grated rind and juice of 2 lemons 400 gm dried fettuccine

Method

  • 01
  • Heat half the oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add pine nuts and sauté until golden (2-3 minutes). Strain through a metal sieve (reserve oil). Place in a bowl and set aside to cool, then add herbs.
  • 02
  • Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add garlic and chilli, sauté until fragrant and golden (1 minute), then add sardines and stir to warm through. Remove from heat, add lemon rind, juice, reserved oil and half the pine nut mixture, season to taste, set aside.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (6-8 minutes). Drain, reserving 60ml cooking water. Return pasta and reserved cooking water to pan. Add sardine mixture, tossing to break up sardines. Serve hot, scattered with remaining pine nut mixture.

Note Marinated sardines are available from select delicatessens. If unavailable, substitute fresh sardine fillets. Simply sear them in oil before you add the garlic and chilli. Marinated white anchovies would also work well in this recipe.
