Roast Duck Legs with Cabbage-Portobello Pappardelle

(or what JS wanted to call "Quick Quackin' Pasta")

So, remember those legs?
(Poor duck, first it was breastless. Now, legless!)

leg 1 of 2

We thought to plop it onto something like this.

Becoming this.

This is basically a vegetable "stir-fry" with some pasta thrown in. First, some pancetta, portobellos and thyme.

They're thrown into a pan with some garlic. The cabbage joined them not long after.

We still had some of our tomato pasta (from our Ravioli "Caprese") in the freezer. We thawed it and made some pappardelle.

After cooking them quickly in salted boiling water, they went into the "stir-fry".

So there you go. Roast duck leg with cabbage-portobello pappardelle.
