We discovered a lovely trick for roasting shallots in the pages of Bon Appetit magazine.

Once roasted, the shallots are great used in vinaigrettes, layered on steak sandwiches or folded into this pasta dish with lemon, bacon and Parmesan cheese.

This recipe and many more can be found on our curated site: nando.com/therecipe.
