Workshop : fresh pasta

There are so many ways to make fresh pasta. Today I want to prepare fresh pasta without eggs, only flour 00, water, a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt. I use my kitchen robot to start. Put 200 grams of flour ( good for a portion for 3-4p) in the robot. Add a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil.  We add some lemon zeste and chopped parsley for a different color and flavor. Start the motor and add slowly some water to obtain a smooth dough. Store the dough in plastic cling film in the fridge. Clean the kitchen table (I have a wooden worksheet which is ideal). Put some flour on the table. Put flour on the rolling pin and on your hands. 2018-08-07_00.32.16[1]Put the pasta dough on the table and knead once more. Add flour (or water if needed). Cut the dough in 4 parts and roll each part thinly. Cut the pasta in ‘maltagliati’ or ‘badly cut’, thus in irregular, rather large and short pieces. Put the pieces on a clean towel or baking paper with some extra flour to prevent sticking together.

Heat a large pan with water and a pinch of salt. Put approx 50 ml of olive oil in a small pan. Add the zeste 1 lemon and bake shortly. Chop and fry 4 garlic cloves in a 1 table spoon of butter and 1 table spoon of olive oil in another pan. Add 500 grams of spinach and 100 grams of rocket salad (keep a handful for the finishing touch). Boil the pasta shortly. Drain. Mix pasta and vegetables. , pepper and salt. Add 300 grams of lucious mozzarella. Finish with sumak, fresh rocket and the lemonzeste oil.
