Chestnut Pasta

A very nice and different taste in pasta. Makes a very nice give away. I usually serve this pasta with none too heavy sauces, that do not dampen the peculiar chestnutty taste/flavour. Try serving it with butter, sage and parmesan shaves. Delicious!

    A few weeks ago I found chesnut flour from a local source and lucky I was! I've<br/>never seen chestnut flour before and bought a small amount to test it in a recipe. <br/>Found your recipe with a few clicks of the mouse and it was wonderful! The flavor is<br/>slightly sweet and nutty! I took your advice-lightly fried fresh minced sage (from our garden)<br/>with some olive oil, butter and one clove of garlic until the sage was fragrant. After boiling the pasta and draining I added the pasta to the pan and cooked on medium heat until lightly browned. Transferred to a platter, garnished with cracked black pepper, sprig of sage, pecorino romano cheese and a drizzle of garlic-flavored olive oil. Served with roasted red beets and romanesco. Memorable meal! Thank you for posting. Will make again as quickly as I can return to the store to replenish my supply of chestnut flour!.
