As you can tell, although I am a staunch British food fanatic and local food enthusiast, I also love Italian food… A lot of my recipes are influenced by Italy and some great Italian chefs, so as I am going to be making pasta in its various guises I thought it best if I have a page that I can reference.. So here it is, a standard pasta recipe (as standard as a recipe that involves 11 eggs!!) and a Wild Flavoured Pasta.
How to make Wild flavoured Pasta
8 egg yolks
You’ll also need a pasta machine or rolling pin
I love making pasta, it is amazing what a few simple (but high quality) ingredients can produce.
To make a wild flavoured version of pasta similar to Lasagne Verde or the other Spinach infused pasta’s. Take a green leaf, Nettle or Jack by the Hedge would be great, cook the green accordingly then drain of all the water (the greens must be squeezed so that all of the liquid is removed). Chop the greens finely until a paste is created and add to the pasta at the stage when the eggs are being added.
One tip – With pasta, practice makes perfect!
