quick home style pasta, inspired by the trimming actions of my basil plant resulted with this yummy dish, the recipe is just a simple triple beef – tomatoes with some small twists like orange zest and a lot of home made herbs.
This of course also makes a fantastic day after hangover meal, which we decided to attempt with a mix of blue cheese, and if you are a blue cheese fan you would not be disappointed.
Very much like the classic tuna pasta just with a rotini twist, I made an edition to the pasta marinade by adding some of my spiced pine nuts mix, just to cover for using comercial pasta rather then home made, it came out good, but not like the real thing.
Another great Italian classic, take a bit of work, though totally worth it and could be freeze also, make a big batch and save for the day you make the dressing.
5 lbs whole baking potatoes
5 beaten egg yolks
3.75 cups flour
Pinch of salt
1. lay the potatoes in a preheated 350 oven, pinch the potatoes in a few places to vent them while cooking. cook for about an hour till they are soft enough.
2. cool the potatoes, peal and mash with a potato ricer (if doing a large batch I would recommend using the food processor here, would be a big time saver)
3. add the flour, eggs and salt to the potatoes mix, and work it in to a light dough (do not over mix)
4. on a floured surface roll 1 inch lines out of the dough and cut them in to 1 inch slices, than with a finger punch them so they get a nice belly (good for catching more sauce)
5. cook in boiled salted water or freeze for future use.
