Melon Parmesan Pasta

Being based out of The Land inspires me to use the freshest ingredients in every meal I eat. This melon had been lying in the kitchen a couple of days, waiting for me to experiment with it, and this is what I came up with! Coupled with a load of parmesan cheese, and farm fresh herbs, this dish is a light delight!



1/2 ripe melon, deseeded, peeled and cubed
1 red chilli
a handful of fresh basil, chopped
30g butter
30g parmesan cheese - grated or finely chopped
1/2 inch ginger, crushed
salt to taste


Blend the melon cubes to make a coarse puree and keep aside.

Heat the butter in a pan, add the ginger and chilli to it and toss for a minute or two.
Now add the melon puree and basil, allow to simmer for 4-5 minutes. The sauce will gradually reduce and thicken.
Stir in the parmesan cheese until it melts. Season with salt.
Toss with freshly cooked pasta of your choice and eat hot!
