Most of us have some pasta handy in the store cupboard. Here are a selection of pasta recipes featuring fresh game (or you could use game from the freezer). Use fresh pasta, ready-made or you could make your own.
Pasta makes the perfect base for game dishes, allowing the flavour of the meat to be the hero. It’s also quick to cook and perfect for those times when you don’t feel up to peeling potatoes! In addition it’s known for being a good energy-giving carbohydrate and a favourite with children too, so one of these dishes could be a good way to introduce youngsters to the delights of eating game.
Here’s a selection of our pasta recipes – ranging from simple to others demanding a little more time and attention. Enjoy!
