I really really like making pasta~
Jacques had been growing a huge basil plant all summer and I wanted to honor it~
It's been the best one yet~
So I thought I would make Josée Di Stasio's recipe..
But I would incorporate Jacque's basil~
It turned out so well!
I made it early in the morning.. ..so I dried it..
In quite an unconventional manner..A new clothes drying rack.. used twice:) It worked!I may invest in a pretty rack..:) For the tabletop..
Dried..it takes more than the 30 seconds-1 min to cook..but nevertheless it was so tasty..
We adorned it with home infused pepper oil..pecorino cheese and lots of garlic..some more fresh basil scattered on top..
It is so well worth the fun of making~
It's as easy as just sitting back and watching someone make it for you~
All summer I wanted to use his basil..I am so glad this came to me~
I halved the recipe.. so 1 1/2 cups of 00 flour(Milano)~ 2 eggs..and 1 tbsp oil..I love making the well and mixing and kneading~♥
It is a thing of beauty..Like stained glass almost:)
An edit here.. you don't need a roller:) You can make pasta hand made..
