Pasta with wild garlic sauce

Given its antibacterial, antibiotic and antiseptic properties, wild garlic is the perfect tasty addition to your diet. The main health benefit of garlic is its effectiveness in reducing blood pressure and, hence, heart disease and the risk of stroke. Although all garlic has this property, wild garlic has the greatest effect on lowering blood pressure. And it tastes divine!

To make the pasta dressing, put the olive oil and the butter in a heavy-based pan with a lid, add the onions and bring them up to a sizzle. Add a pinch of salt, pop the lid on and turn it right down. Leave the onions to soften for 10 minutes. Once meltingly soft, take the lid off, turn the heat up and add the vinegar and wine. Simmer until the liquid has nearly evaporated. Throw in the wild garlic, put the lid on again and leave it to wilt for a few minutes. Add the pasta to a pan of boiling water and cook. Add the raisins and stir. Drain the pasta, return to the pan and tip in the dressing. Mix thoroughly, check the seasoning, add the almonds and pile on to plates with parmesan cheese.
