This is the ultimate in moreish pasta. Lovely fresh tagliatelle coated in a creamy sauce that's infused with fresh sage and a big whack of parmesan. Add in a couple of juicy pork chops and you have a recipe that looks great, tastes great and is super easy. This is a two part recipe. In part one we grill the chops and in part two we make the sauce and serve.

Large frying pan/wok

Large pan of salted boiling water

Spoons to stir

Sharp knife to slice the pork

This week, there are two original recipes on my newsletter which will make Christmas that little bit easier, and taste that much better! My Pork & Pickle Stuffing Balls and my Baileys Biscuits. The stuffing recipe is a great alternative to the traditional sage and onion - filled with pork, apple and chunky pickle, it has a real tang to it and is very easy and cheap to make. My very grown-up Baileys Biscuits have a good whack of alcohol and a delicious chewy, oat bite to them - naughtily moreish!

Throughout December, the theme for my newsletters is, not surprisingly, 'Christmas'! I have 3 great recipes for you this month, from my Grand Marnier Soufflé to Baileys Biscuits. So sign up for free today to get your recipes each week, along with valuable cooking tips for the festive season.

Turn your grill on high to preheat. Season the pork chops on both sides then, using a sharp knife, make incisions into the fat, as in the photo to the right. Space the cuts about 1-2 cm apart all the way around the fat. Pop the chops under the grill for 4 minutes on each side.

Whilst the chops are cooking, put a pan of salted boiling water on the hob and get your large frying pan/wok out.

Once the chops have had 6 minutes in total (4 + 2), move onto the next part and everything should be ready at roughly the same time.

Put your frying pan on a medium hob and add in a few teaspoons of oil. Throw in the shallots, garlic and sage and cook for 1 minute, stirring as the pan heats up. Whilst the shallots start cooking, pop the pasta into the pan of boiling water and stir.

The pasta will take about 3 minutes until al dente, so whilst it's on, you can make the sauce. Pour the cream into the frying pan and stir. By now the pork should be cooked, so remove from the grill and set aside. Stir everything then add the large handful of parmesan to the sauce and stir again.

Slice the pork into thin strips and add to the bubbling sauce. Drain the pasta and add it into the sauce, stirring to coat each ribbon.

To serve, simply divide the pasta between a couple of bowls or plates and grate a little fresh parmesan on the top.

I hope that you enjoy it!
