HOMEMADE PASTA - LEESA BROWN
This is the one Leesa makes delicious noodles from. There is no comparison to the pasta you buy. Barb uses the same basic recipe, but makes it in her food processor.
2 cups all purpose flour
Stir together 2 cups of the flour and the salt. Make a well in center . Combine eggs, water and oil; add to flour. Mix well. Sprinkle kneading surface with remaining flour. Turn dough onto floured surface. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic (8 to 10 minutes). Cover; let rest 10 minutes. (Dough can be refrigerated for 3 days or frozen for longer storage.) Divide dough into thirds; use rolling pin or pasta machine to roll dough. Cut as desired. Makes 1 lb. fresh pasta.
Preparation and cooking time: 25 minutes. Makes 4 servings - 640 calories per serving.
3/4 lb. thin spaghetti
Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy 12 inch skillet over moderately high heat for about 1 minute. Add the beef and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until browned. Push the beef to one side of the skillet and add onion and garlic.
Reduce heat to moderate and cook for 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil, oregano and spinach. Cook and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain spaghetti thoroughly in a colander and toss with the sauce in the skillet. Sprinkle with the cheese and serve hot with a green salad.
1 lb. ground beef
Brown ground beef and onion. Add rest of ingredients. Turn up heat until sauce is boiling then scatter on top: 8 oz. spaghetti, broken in pieces. Cook until spaghetti is just tender, then spoon over mixture:
2 cups cottage cheese
8 oz. or more grated cheese.
(Using food processor)
9 oz. parmesan cheese
Cut Parmesan cheese into 1" cubes. Lock bowl into position. Insert steel blade. Process Parmesan until finely chopped, 6 or 7 cubes at a time. Remove to a bowl as processed. Cook spinach as directed on package. Drain well. Process spinach and Ricotta cheese until blended and smooth. Put into the top of a double boiler. Stir in Parmesan cheese and lemon juice and heat over hot water while linguini cooks. Cook linguini in boiling salted water (6 cups water with 2 tsp. salt), until tender yet firm, about 8 minutes. Drain. Serve linguini with green cheese sauce, topped with chopped onions.
2 Tbsp. butter
Place butter and oil in a frying pan. When butter is melted, add
onion and garlic, cook until onion is tender. Add clams, Italian Seasoning, parsley and wine. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally and cook until liquid is reduced by about one half. Toss 2 Tbsp. butter with 1/2 pound of linguine, pour your sauce and top and gently toss.
Optional: You can also add
10 slices of cooked, crumbled bacon
1-1/2 cups unbleached flour
Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain well and cool . Squeeze as much water out as possible. Chop spinach finely.
Pour flour into large bowl, making a well in the center. Break eggs into well, then add spinach. Mix well. Turn out onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic - about 8 to 10 minutes. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and allow to rest at room temperature for an hour. Roll with rolling pin or pasta machine and cut in thin strips (with sharp knife or pasta machine.)
