I have not forgotten that I have a blog, it is just that not getting a lot of cooking done of late. This is good for my favorite BBQ joint, less good for my wallet. Does this mean I will not be there for stuffed jalapenos on Saturdays, well, no it does not. Anyways, the knee felt mediocre, so to the kitchen. I threw together some pasta combining one egg with enough flour ( I use 50/50 all-purpose flour and semolina flour), a couple pinches of salt and a little kneading. After a one hour rest to hydrate and rest the gluten. It gets rolled, hand cut and allowed to dry on a rack.
I also used some jar sauce, fried it up with a little olive oil, some Lucky Dog Hawaiian Pepper hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Once the pasta had tried for a couple hours, I boiled it for 3 to 4 minutes, since it was fairly random and thick pasta, the minute extra got it to al dente. I think it needed maybe even a minute more as it turned out.
I added the pasta and a little pasta water to thicken the tomato sauce and plated. Fairly low in protein and very filling. I ended up eating only half of what is in the photo.
