Environmental Impact

Per serving: 
377 grams CO2 equivalence - carbon footprint
425 litres - water footprint


This recipe’s environmental sustainability level is: Good.

To remain environmentally sustainable at each meal, our advice is to keep within 1000 grams of CO2 equivalence (carbon footprint) and 1000 litres of virtual water (water footprint). Remember that animal proteins (meat, cheese, fish and eggs) have a greater impact than grains, beans, pulses and vegetables. Vegetable sides generally have a low environmental impact, equivalent to around 100 grams of CO2, including dressing.


Method

Wash and dice the savoy cabbage.

Clean and slice the mushrooms.

Bring water to boil and add the savoy cabbage.

Cook for around ten minutes, add the penne and cook for the time shown on the packet. 

In the meantime, cut the bacon into strips.

Fry the chilirosemary and garlic in the olive oil and toss in the mushrooms.

After a few minutes, remove the mushrooms and set aside. Add the bacon and remove the rosemary.

Drain the pasta and add it to the frying pan, mixing well. Add the mushrooms.

Serve with a pinch of black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.


The Chef’s Advice

When in season, rosemary blooms blue and purple flowers which can be added to garnish the dish. Rosemary leaves and flowers can be used for infusions, herbal teas and tinctures to help with digestion.

Nutritional Advice

Cabbage is packed with nutrients that keep your heart healthy, reduce inflammation, improve digestion, and lower blood pressure. Get creative with your leftover cabbage so it doesn’t go to waste!

Environmental Advice

Reduce your consumption of meat, especially red and processed meats.

Meat has a significantly higher environmental impact than plants, with processed meat being the most unsustainable. Eat it in small quantities to add a touch of flavour to your dishes – a little bit goes a long way!
