Jamie Oliver is a popular topic these days, with his Food Revolution campaign and television show. Feeding schoolchildren healthy meals is really important, and so is cooking healthy meals for people of all ages….
I saw Jamie’s recipe for Farfalle with Savoy Cabbage, Pancetta, and Mozzarella, and decided to make it for myself. The original recipe is probably excellent, but I did make several changes. First, I used regular ham which I had leftover from another recipe instead of buying pancetta. I also used whole wheat penne, because I couldn’t find whole wheat farfalle. And I left out the pine nuts, because they were going to require a separate trip to the store. It was very exciting though to use savoy cabbage for the first time!
Be warned, this recipe makes a lot; the cabbage bulks up the dish. But I really like it; the flavors go together well, and it’s a one dish meal. I’d consider this next time you are cooking for a crowd!
