A Farewell to Basil Fettuccine

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars
13

"I made this while watching 'A Farewell to Arms' on TV and realized the title suited the intent of the pasta, which was to celebrate the last gleanings from my rather prolific basil patch. If you feel the need to serve this with a sauce, consider a butter garlic sauce or a white wine sauce with chicken. Whatever you choose to accompany this with, enjoy it!"

Directions

  1. Using a food processor, process basil leaves until chopped very fine. Add 1 1/2 cups of flour and pulse two or three times, or until combined. Add egg, 1 teaspoon oil, and the water until dough forms a ball shape. If dough seems dry, add a bit more water. Wrap dough in a piece of plastic wrap which has been coated in a few drops of olive oil. Refrigerate dough for 2 hours.
  2. Remove dough from refrigerator, and cut into 6 equal size portions. Run pasta though pasta machine, or roll with rolling pin to desired thickness. Use the additional flour to coat pasta while rolling.
  3. Allow pasta to dry for one hour prior to cooking.
  4. Cook in a large pot of boiling water until al dente. This should take only a 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the pasta.

Not too crazy about this recipe. It was good, but wouldn't go thru all the trouble to make it again. Thanks anyway!

I didn't have enough basil so added italian seasoning, but it turned out great. So tender and tasty. Not bad for my first attempt at pasta!

I made this last night for dinner with friends. I made it using an automatic pasta maker, so I did not refigerate the dough before making the noodles. It turned out great! It's a great way to us...
