In a bowl mix a clove of garlic, basil, broth, cream, salt, pepper and pistachios to make the roux sauce.

Wash and cut the mushrooms, then place them on a dish.

Peel and chop the garlic, making it brown in a pan with a little oil. Add the mushrooms and brown them.

Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring it to the boil, then add the roux prepared earlier, stir quickly and bring to the boil

Wash the cherry tomatoes and cut them in half, place them on a plate and sprinkle with chopped marjoram, thyme and sugar.


Using a Samurai Gourmet dish, make a base of pistachio sauce and place a stuffed pacchero vertically in the centre. Close it with the confit tomatoes and a heart of basil.
