1 1/2 cups semolina and wholemeal flour mixed
1-2 tspn ground black pepper
1/2 tspn salt
2 large eggs
2 tbls extra virgin olive oil
sift together flours and salt and pepper then make a welt in the middle. Crack in the two eggs and add oil to middle. Gently mix in flour a little at a time until you have a dough too thick to mix with a fork..then get your hands in... Kneed the dough for 10 mins of so until elastic and smooth then let it sit for 20-30 mins.
Roll out the dough on a floured board to about 1/8th of an inch. allow to dry out a little for 10 mins or so.
Fold over a few times and cut into thin strips. These can be allowed to dry for storage or cooked in boiling salty water for 2-3 mins.
We served ours with tomato and onion sauce. I had intended to go into the wood and gather some wild garlic and make a pesto with it (then I know Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall would marry me :-)) but the kids didn't feel like it and in my new 'slowing down' mode I just shrugged and chopped the tomatoes.
I really enjoyed it (the others didn't) and I think they would be divine in a soup.
We spent most of the morning making bread and pasta and playing outside. It was a glorious day. When Benny had his nap Rebe and I went to the library and chose her some new books. We got the Mrs Pepperpot cd for her to listen too. Love those stories, I'd forgotten about them.
