INTRODUCTION I with The Cairns Post Food Consultant, Nola Craig t’s not uncommon to find that a

Italian food was

majority of growers in Tropical North Queensland have Italian names.

one of the first to become popularised throughout Australia in the mid 1960s as little trattorias started to spring up in the “Latin quarters” of major cities.

That’s because an Italian migration began before World War I and continued into the 1930s and post World War II. Settling in areas as far south as Ingham, across the Tableland and as far north as Cooktown, they worked hard to save for their own land and many of their descendants are successful farmers today. The sub-tropical climate with reliable rainfall and highly fertile soils of the Tableland is conducive to growing Italian and Europeanstyle vegetables and herbs. Many Italian traditions are still present in our towns and countryside with architecture, and roads and attractions bearing Italian names. Artisan methods of producing food have been handed down and sauces, pasta and other local Italian products are now been seen in the region.

This new-found pasta food was very different to the meat and three veg traditional cuisine of the Anglo-Saxon majority. Yet over the years, we have all learned there is a lot more to Italian cuisine than spaghetti bolognaise. Those strange vegetables and herbs that were being grown in any arable space in the front and back garden of all Italian homes, have now become mainstream and available in the marketplace.

RECIPE BY VALLI LITTLE FOOD DIRECTOR, DELICIOUS. Photography BY  CATHERINE SUTHERLAND

QUICK PASTA and MEATBALLS Serves 4

ingredients 500g good-quality pork and herb sausages 2 cups (500ml) tomato passata (sieved tomatoes) 1 cup (250ml) chicken stock or water 400g rigatoni or penne pasta 1 tbs olive oil Sliced basil leaves and grated parmesan, to serve

directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Squeeze the meat from the sausage casings (discarding casings), then roll it into small balls, about 2cm across. Spread the meatballs in a single layer on the baking tray and cook in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden. While the meatballs are baking, place the tomato passata and chicken stock or water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or until slightly reduced. Remove the meatballs from the oven and drain off excess fat. Add the meatballs to the sauce and leave to simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water according to packet instructions, then drain and toss with the olive oil. Divide the pasta among plates, top with some meatballs and sauce, and serve with basil and parmesan.

A clever shortcut makes this pasta dish tasty and budget friendly

SPAGHETTI with CHICKEN AND SEMI-DRIED TOMATO PESTO Serves 4 / PREP and COOKING 60 MINS ingredients 2 single chicken breast fillets, excess fat trimmed 1 red capsicum, quartered, deseeded 80g fat-free semi-dried tomatoes 20g shredded parmesan 1 garlic clove, finely crushed 60ml (1/4 cup) fresh lemon juice 2 tsp olive oil 400g dried thin spaghetti pasta 80g reduced-fat feta 1/3 cup chopped fresh continental parsley

directions Bring a large frying pan of water to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Add the chicken and reduce heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes. Set aside for 30 minutes or until cooked through.

With the motor running, gradually add the lemon juice and oil in a thin, steady stream until combined. Cook the pasta in a saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Drain. Return to the pan. Add the semi-dried tomato mixture and chicken to the pasta. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle over the feta and parsley. Season with pepper to serve.

Serves 4

ingredients

Three cheese sauce

4 (about 800g) sebago potatoes, peeled, quartered 225g (1 1/2 cups) plain flour 20g (1/4 cup) finely grated parmesan 1 cup (70g) coarse fresh breadcrumbs (made from day-old bread)

80g butter 1/3 cup (50g) flour 1/3 cup (80ml) dry white wine 2 cups (500ml) milk 1/2 cup (40g) finely grated parmesan 1/2 cup (125g) mascarpone 150g white castello cheese, crumbled

directions Cook the potato in a steamer basket over a saucepan of simmering water for 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and set aside, uncovered, for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Use a potato ricer to mash the potato into a medium bowl. Alternatively, place in a large bowl and use a potato masher to mash until smooth. Add flour and parmesan to the potato and use a wooden spoon to stir until just combined. Use your hands to knead until smooth. If mixture is too soft, add more flour until a firm dough forms. Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll 1 portion into a 2cm-diameter log. Use a lightly floured knife to cut into 2cm pieces. Repeat with remaining dough portions. Roll each piece of dough into a ball. Use your thumb to roll each ball over a floured fork. Place on a lined tray. To make the cheese sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over high heat until foaming. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until flour bubbles. Add wine and stir for 2 minutes or until well combined and mixture bubbles. Remove from heat. Gradually add the milk while stirring with a balloon whisk. Return to heat and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until sauce boils and thickens. Remove from heat. Add parmesan, mascarpone and white castello and stir until cheese melts and mixture is smooth. Season to taste. Preheat oven to 200째C. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to boil over medium heat. Add one-third of gnocchi and cook for 3 minutes or until gnocchi rises to surface. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a heatproof bowl. Repeat in 2 more batches with remaining gnocchi. Add the warm cheese sauce and gently toss to combine. Season to taste. Spoon gnocchi among four 2-cup (500ml) shallow ovenproof dishes. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
