Russet Squire Linguine with Bacon, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Pine Nuts


Russet Squire Linguine with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Pine Nuts
There's a brand new cheese on the block....although this one is most certainly of the round variety. Russet Squire, a cider washed brie, made by Cornish Cheese company Curds and Croust use the very best Cornish milk (sourced from within 30 miles of the dairy), which ensures a really good curd and, in turn, a really good cheese.

Washed in cider up to 8 times, Russet Squire has the most amazing punchy flavour of any soft rind cheese I've tasted. It's the perfect addition to any cheeseboard but is also great for cooking with too. I made this super yummy linguine with melted Russet Squire, bacon, sun-dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts and it was out of this world good. Oh my goodness, I could have eaten the whole thing myself. Hubby and I sat out on our balcony once the kids had gone to bed and devoured this meal with a lovely glass of dry white wine. Cheese+Pasta+Wine= My perfect evening!

You can buy Russet Squire directly from the Curds and Croust website (£6 per 165g), where you will also find Miss Wenna, a beautiful and mellow Cornish Brie (my youngest daughter's middle name is Morwenna so she particularly likes this one!), Boy Laity, a delectable camembert as well as The Truffler, a unique brie flavoured with truffles. I'm very much looking forward developing some more recipes with these fab local Cornish cheeses soon.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RUSSET SQUIRE  LINGUINE

  • Make it veggie by omitting the bacon.
  • Up the veggies by adding sweetcorn, mushrooms and courgettes (just pop the veggies in the pan at the same time as the onion).
  • The recipe can easily be doubled to serve 4.

  • 200g Pasta (whatever shape you like)
  • 1 Cup of Pasta Water
  • 6 slices Streaky bacon
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Red Onion, sliced
  • 165g Russet Squire (or brie of your choice), rind removed and cut into chunks (you might find freezing it for 30 minutes beforehand helpful)

  • Small handful of Basil, leave torn

instructions:


  1. Cook the pasta according to instructions and before draining, reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile in a large frying pan fry the streaky bacon in a glug of oil until crisp. Remove from the pan then chop into pieces.
  3. In the bacon fat, fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes. Add the russet squire (or brie) and reserved cooking water. Let the cheese melt into a sauce before adding the cooked bacon, sun dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts.
  4. Scatter with the basil leaves before serving.

  4. I love a good linguine but never tried one with nuts in it but bacon is a fan favourite in our home. Might need to recreate this one without the nuts

  5. All my ancestors are Cornish (Maker & Rame) so you won't get any argument about how good Cornish cheeses are from me. I love the sound of the Russet Squire.
