Fresh Fettucchini with Tomato and Basil Sauce

I was lucky enough to try using an automatic pasta maker this week.  I have made pasta from scratch before, but never in a machine.  It’s also something I’ve never wanted as pasta seems so cheap to buy, why make it at home?  But I was somewhat impressed with how quick (and hynotising) it was to make pasta at home.

I really love pasta so decided to make an egg fettuccini – and it took more time to put the machine together than it did to make the pasta!  Fresh pasta also takes no time to cook and I made a lovely cherry tomato and basil sauce, both of which I sourced from my vegetable garden.  It was so delicious!

I love this pasta maker that I grabbed from Kogan.

 

Method

  1. Measure out two exact cups of plain flour and add to the machine.

  2. Add the egg to a measuring cup.  Pour in enough water over the top of the egg to make 110ml of water/egg mixture.

  3. Pour the watery egg mixture into the machine.  Close and press 'Two Cups'.

  4. Ensure the 'Fettuccini' maker is on the end.

  5. Place a plate underneath the catcher to collect the fresh pasta.

  6. To cook:  Add the fettuccine to a large pot of salted water.  Cook for five minutes, then drain and serve right away.

  7. In a frypan, add the butter and cook until bubbling.

  8. Chop the cherry tomatoes in half and add to the pan.  Cook for 10 - 15 minutes until they become 'saucy' and thick.

  9. Add in the fresh basil leaves.

  10. Spoon the mixture over the top of the fresh fettuccini.  Top with grated cheese if desired.
