Fantastic vegetable Carbonara

Fantastic vegetable Carbonara


Crystal sea salt (Maldon or similar)
250g green beans, trimmed
10 asparagus spears, trimmed
25g unsalted butter
Small handful pine nuts
1/3 cup finely chopped shallot
100g freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano (plus more for serving)
3 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
Freshly ground black pepper
500g fresh linguine (feel free to substitute with your favourite type of pasta)

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook for 2 minutes, then add asparagus; continue cooking until vegetables are just tender, about 3 minutes more. Make sure they don’t overcook. You want them to have a nice ‘bite’.

Using a sieve, remove the vegetables from water (reserve water); run under cold water to stop cooking. Cut beans in half lengthwise. Cut asparagus in half crosswise, then quarter lengthwise.

In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat; add pine nuts, shallot and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 1 minute, then add beans and asparagus, stir to combine and remove from heat. In a small bowl, whisk together the grated cheese, egg, egg yolks, parsley and a generous grinding of pepper.

Return vegetable cooking water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to the packaging.

Drain the pasta and transfer to a large serving bowl; immediately add the vegetable mixture and egg mixture and toss well to coat strands. Serve immediately, passing extra cheese and pepper at the table.
