Sweet pepper Fettuccine




I find out the easy thing that is make fresh pasta. Few are the times in that I go to the Pasta factory to buy them. Thinking in pasta with ink squids, I thought that serious amusing and it would leave the usual thing if I put in them some flavors. And I solved to start making them with sweet red pepper, but also can be made with sweet yellow or green pepper. The result is a pasta with a beautiful color and very tasty

500G flour

A sweet red pepper more or less 150g

2 small Eggs

A pinch of salt

Retire the skin of the pepper. I retire the skin baking them or burning the skin in one of the burners of the kitchen, clean the seeds and process it with a thread of olive oil. Put in blender’s bowl, the flour in crown .In the center put the eggs the processed pepper and the salt. I use the accessory hook, and I beat until it forms a homogeneous dough. I allow resting some minutes. Stretch and cut in tapes, I separate them, so that they don't stick, and I sprinkle some flour on, them wait dry off a little before cooking them. .

Wow, that does look easy. Do you use a special machine or something to cut the pasta?

Sylvia said...

Yes, Kelly, I cut whit an accessory that cut in tapes,but you can cut with a knife, the result is not the same but the taste is the same.
