In a large pot over high heat, bring 2 quarts salted water to boil. Once boiling, cook pappardelle until al dente, about 8 minutes. Reserve 1/4-1/2 cup cooking liquid. Drain pasta and set aside. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, Cook egg until whites are set and yolk reaches desired runniness, about 5 minutes depending on preference.

To serve, gently toss pappardelle with pesto and 1/4 cup cooking water (add more if necessary). Top with fried egg, red pepper flakes, and a parmesan cheese.

Dandelion Pesto

1 large bunch dandelion greens, washed and dried
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup olive oil, divided
salt and pepper to taste

In a food processor, pulse to combine 1/3 of greens with 1/4 cup olive oil. Scrape down sides of the bowl and add the remaining greens. Add almonds, garlic, generous seasoning of salt and pepper. Pulse to combine. Add cheese and additional 1/4 cup olive oil, process until everything is smoothed out. Taste and add more salt as necessary.

I’ve never heard of dandelion pesto before. It looks delicious with the pasta and the egg though. Definitely going to try it once.
