This weekend I didn’t really have anything to do… On Saturday my parents and I went to breakfast at Farmers Boy. Farmers Boy is a fun new old fashioned diner, we had a super fun and extremely filling breakfast. After talking about weekend plans with my parents we decided to invite one of my friends over to make pasta. I talked to Sonja, a fellow blogger, and we were all set. After we got back from breakfast I did some work and watched some TV until Sonja get there.
When Sonja go there we were flipping through the recipe book, Egg, to find the right recipe. As we were discussing how amazing all the recipes look she saw a chocolate souffle recipe… Though neither of us had ever made a souffle Sonja was determined to make one. I knew it was going to be hard but I knew we could do it. The recipe ended up being really confusing and missed a step so I wouldn’t try to explain it.
About half way through the recipe we knew we were in trouble and my mom had to some to the rescue and save our souffle.
But it all worked out and we ended up with delicious, dense chocolate souffle.
Next up was the Pasta. I had a better idea of how to make the pasta so I stepped aside and let Sonja have the fun. Pasta is a little easier to make, first get out the ingredients:
- 1 3/4 cup Italian Pasta Flour
- 1 Medium Egg
- 4 Medium Yolks
- 1 t Olive Oil
- Pinch of Salt
To Make the Dough Start By
- Putting the Dry Ingredients on the Counter
- Mix the Ingredients and Form into a Mound
- Make a Well in the Center of the Dry Ingredients Mound
- Pour Egg Yolks, Egg, and Olive Oil into Mound
- Pinch the Dry Ingredients into the Yolks until all is ixed in
- Form Form into a Ball
- Kneed and Form the Dough
- Wrap in Plastic Wrap and Put in Fridge for 30 mins
Next Start Making the Pasta Sheets
- Take Half the Dough out
- Roll with a Rolling Pin until it is 1/4 inch
- Feed Through Pasta Maker on Largest Setting
- Fold Vertically and Feed Through
- Fold Horizontally and Feed Through
- Repeat until it is the Desired Width
- Move to the next Setting and Feed Through
Continue until it is the desired thickness may have to cut the pasta in half
- Feed Through the Linguine Cutter on the Other Side of the Pasta Maker
- Place in Bowl and Dust with Flour
- Repeat with the Other Half of the Dough
And you’re finished!
My mom made the sauce we used a Linguine Alla Carbonara recipe from Egg, and threw together roasted asparagus and a salad and the meal was set.
After we ate dinner we ate the souffles Sonja and I had made earlier and they were amazing! We had a super fun day and a busy weekend.
