how would you cut them? bearing in mind its going in a pasta, surely if i cut in half and slice lengthways i will have large slabs of parsnip in my taglietellie

Why would you put parsnip in pasta? Is that what they do on the streets of Napoli? I think not. There's fusion cooking, and then there's just plain wrong.

How are you cooking the parsnips?

Parsnips in tagliatelle? <Boak>

Yes, you will end up with giant lumps of mushy parsnip... Peel, halve lengthways and slice like rounds of carrot would be marginally less lumpy, but I still can't imagine the sauce that would go with it shock

Why? Really, why would you do that? confused

I never cut my parsnips lengthways. It's weird.
(although I think it's the "usual" way to do it)

I cut them into circles, about 5mm thick.

Its jamies, parnip and pancetta with lots of butter and parmesan, saw it on the MN lunch thread.
I woykd have thought cutting in half lengthways then slicing 'half coin like' would be better.

I think he does mean julienne them , like carrots. How are they cooked?

Bit late in the day but I grate parsnips into lots of things - scrambled egg, pasta dishes, soups and stews. I even mix it with breadcrumbs and sprinkle over (insert a variety of oven-based dishes here) for a flavoursome crunchy topping, delish!
