HOMEMADE Herbed Fettuccini

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs
2 tbsp snipped fresh parsley
1 tbsp vegetable oil (we used safflower oil, no veggie oil in the house)
1 tsp salt
1 garlic clove, pressed

**we doubled the recipe – so everything up top x2

what I did:
1. place flour in a large mixing bowl
2. whisk eggs, then mix in parsley, oil, salt and garlic
3. create a well in the flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture
4. mix well until dough ball forms
5. knead for a few minutes on a lightly floured surface, till dough firms up
6. let sit covered for 30 mins
7. divide your dough into 4 ~equal balls  
8. roll each ball to a dimension of 12×4 (or as close as you can get it)

9. cut (I found using a pizza cutter worked well for this) into ¼ inch strips and then separate

10. allow noodles to dry for 30 mins or more

11. place in boiling water for ~3 mins, or until desired firmness
12. toss with desired toppings and serve

We tossed our noodles with sautéed leeks, spinach and asparagus, then dusted with fresh parmesan.  We sautéed in mainly olive oil, with a hint of butter… it tasted great with a fresh butter lettuce salad.  It wasn’t too heavy or to light, it was perfect for our 67 degree evening.

Garden Pizza – OUR way

We started with homemade pizza dough – we used The Essential Baking Cookbook, page 256, to make the dough.  We followed the recipe exactly.  If you’d like the recipe please email us and we’ll forward it.  The reason I am not including it here, is because there are so many dough recipes already I didn’t want to add something basic.  IF and WHEN we alter the recipe or change it, I’ll include those directions.

1 package refrigerated pizza crust (or your own homemade one – we made our own)
½ cup mayo
½ package dried ranch seasoning mix
½ diced red bell pepper
3 small carrots sliced
1/2 onion chopped
½ cup sliced mushrooms
½ cup chopped fresh spinach
1 cup crumbled feta ~4oz
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

1. mix your mayo and ranch seasonings
2. roll out pizza dough, brush with olive oil (make sure you get the edges/crust, then spread the mayo mixture on pizza, ½ inch from sides
3. sauté onions for ~3 mins, add in mushrooms, carrots and peppers and continue sautéing for ~5 more mins
4. spread sautéed mixture over the pizza, top with chopped spinach, top with crumbled feta and finish with fresh parmesan
5. bake at 350 for ~30 mins or until desired doneness
