Homemade Pasta with Garden Vegetables and Parmesan

  • For the Pasta Dough
  • 2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, to toss after cooking
  • Salt and pepper
  • For the Vegetables
  • 1 pound green beans
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 small courgette, sliced lengthwise, about 1/2" thick
  • 1 red pepper, cut in quarters and seeded
  • 3 bulb onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 8 basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese

For the Pasta Dough

For pasta, pulse flour and salt in a food processor. With the processor running, add eggs and water and pulse until dough is a rough, crumbly texture.

Turn dough onto a work surface, shape into 2 discs and wrap in plastic. Let chill at least an hour before rolling. Roll pasta into thin sheets through a pasta machine, according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Roll the pasta into lasagne sheets and cut into 1-inch strips (pappardelle cut). Toss pappardelle with a little flour or semolina, loosely crumble (so it dries evenly) and let dry until ready to cook.

If not using within 4 hours, wrap and refrigerate pasta.

Cook pasta in generously salted boiling water until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and toss with 2 Tbsp olive oil, and season lightly.

For the Vegetables

For vegetables, trim and blanch beans in salted water until just tender, then drain and shock in ice water.

Preheat grill to high heat and toss blanched beans, courgette, pepper and bulb onion with 2 tablespoon olive oil. Grill vegetables until lightly charred and tender.

Once cooled, cut peppers, courgette and onions into bite size pieces.

In a sauté pan over medium high heat add 2 tablespoon oil, grilled vegetables and garlic and sauté 1 minute.

Add wine, tomato, oregano and tear in basil leaves and toss for 1 minute. Gently toss in cooked pasta, add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season to taste.

Spoon onto a platter and top with Parmesan curls made with a vegetable peeler.

This dish can be served warm or at room temperature.
