1 tablespoon olive oil sun
1 tablespoon butter sun
100 g single cream mercury
½ cup crushed walnuts jupiter
200 g goat cheese venus
2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese venus
½ cup finely chopped fresh basil mars

Halve marrow lengthwise. Remove seeds and peel. Halve across also.
Boil water in a big saucepan. Add salt and the marrow quarters. Cook for 15 minutes. Drain.
On a chopping board thinly slice marrow pieces lengthwise. Lay the slices down on the board and cut long pasta like stripes out of them. Keep aside.
Melt butter with the oil in a frying pan. Chop garlic finely and add to butter with the walnut. Brown them without burning. Pour it on the “pasta”.
Chop basil finely and sprinkle on the “pasta”.
Mix cheese with single cream thoroughly. Add salt if needed. Pour on pasta and shake together carefully.
You may use any other type of strong flavoured cheese.
The best is to start preparation with mixing the cheese and cream. Then while slicing the marrow you brown the garlic. This way they will keep warm until serving.
I like to use nature for decoration. This dish looks breathtakingly beautiful served on washed tree leaves.
