FETTUCCINE WITH COCOA

 

  • Cooking Time: 5
  • Servings: 5
  • Preparation Time: 2

Ingredients

  • 300 gr flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoon of cocoa (without sugar)
  • Salt
  • Water (if necessary)

Directions

  • Mix flour and cocoa.
  • Make well in center of flour/cocoa
  • Add eggs.
  • Work eggs into flour with fingers to make a soft dough.
  • Knead dough 10 minutes or until dough is soft and smooth.
  • Cover with a towel and let dough rest at least 30 minutes, optimal for an hour. You can put it even in the fridge.
  • Cut dough into 3 parts.
  • Roll each quarter to a very thin rectangle using the hand-machine for home made pasta. I have a machine with 5 size level.
  • The technique is to start from the less thin number then flip like a book in 3 layers. Pass the pasta into the lower rolls and repeat till reaching the thinnest size.
  • Slice dough across into 1/4 inch wide strips.
  • Unwind strips and allow to dry on clean dry towels for 1 hour or longer.
  • Cook the pasta in salted, boiling water. Since it's fresh, it will cook in three to five minutes.
  • You can cook it even the day after.
  • I usually serve these fettuccine with cocoa with a ragù with cinnamon.
