Mushroom Papparadelle with Cavolo Nero

Mushroom Papparadelle with Cavolo Nero

So I got in tonight from a long day at work, flipping starving (HWDC is away) and thought oh what shall I have for dinner? It was  cold and miserable outside and I wanted pasta! But I’m also still on #HEALTHYEPLS – so it needed to be as low fat as possible. So I looked in the fridge to see what I had and managed remarkably to conjure up this little beauty

Have you ever tried Cavolo Nero? I love it,  it’s so strong in colour and when cooked it’s so soft to eat – delicious! And obviously so so good for you

So tasty, so quick! Mushroom Papparadelle with Cavolo Nero mmmmmm

Have a go and if you like it or have any comments please drop me a comment below the recipe, I do so love to have your comments

Many Thanks Cx
