My friend Camille Becerra and I got together a few weeks back to make some homemade pasta. We love collaborating together and I will admit that working with chefs makes my job that much more fun. We did a couple of pastas and this papparedelle was one. Super simple, fresh and delicious. Thanks Camille for the recipe! Even if you dont have the time to make fresh pasta, this sauce would be great with any dried pasta.
1 cup flour
pinch of salt
water, as needed
-Mix the flour and salt.
-Make a well in the flour to hold the egg, slowly start incorporate the flour with the egg a little at a time.
-Determine the dryness of the dough and add water accordingly, it is important to do so now before you begin kneading. Dough tends not to take in any moisture once it is developed.
-Let dough rest for at least 20 minutes.
-Roll and cut.
