Clonakilty Black Pudding Pasta Recipe | Black Pudding Day

October 23, 2017

Wednesday 25th October brings Black Pudding Day. To celebrate I’m sharing with you my Black Pudding Pasta Recipe. Because black pudding isn’t just for breakfast.

For my recipe I used Clonakilty Blackpudding. Clonakilty pride themselves on their nose to tail ethos, something I can get on board with. I’m a huge fan of game and less popular cuts of meat, so was really happy to collaborate with them. For Black Pudding Day I really wanted to showcase a recipe that wasn’t just black pudding with scallops and peas or a breakfast recipe (although I do have one to share). This Black Pudding Pasta Recipe is easy, rich and tasty. The dish really works with the secret spice blend Clonakilty add to their black pudding.

  1. 210g Clonakilty Black Pudding, chopped into half moons
  2. 400g Tin of passatta
  3. 200g Cherry tomatoes
  4. 1 Red onion, finely sliced
  5. 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  6. 50g Black olives, pitted
  7. 2 Peppers, sliced into strips
  8. 200g Mushrooms, sliced
  9. 1tsp Caster sugar
  10. 1tbsp Tomato puree
  11. 1tbsp Olive oil
  12. Black pepper, to season
  13. Enough pasta per person, the sauce keeps in the fridge if only serving 2 people at once.
  1. Fry the black pudding in oil until cooked, put to one side.
  2. Add the onion and pepper into the pan, cook until soft. Add in the mushrooms, cook for a couple of minutes more. Then add in the garlic and tomato puree, cook until fragrant and the puree has melted down a bit.
  3. Add in the pasatta, tomatoes, olives and caster sugar, bring to a simmer. Add back the black pudding, be careful not to break it up too much. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce is thick.
  4. During the simmer, cook your pasta as per packet instructions.
  5. Stir the sauce into the pasta and season with plenty of black pepper. Add grated cheese if you want too!

    I have tried black pudding several times before, and it is all about the quality for me. I found some quite bitty if that makes any sense? And others much nicer. I like it though!

      Definitely, I loved this brand, a lot less fatty than most and was very sumptuous and rich.

    This looks sooooo tasty, I love a good black pudding! It’s great as part of a carbonara, or in a salad with beetroot. I also love it crumbled up in a stew to add richness. I also love it finely crumbled up, fried until very crisp and then sprinkled on top of soups. Delish!

      I need to try it in carbonara – sorry another tomato based recipe!

      Lol! Completely different dinner then 😉 I can assure you it tastes very different like this rather than just plonked on a plate with breakfast 🙂
