A LSSR: 4 RECIPES IN ONE WHOLE WHEAT PASTA DOUGH
This is a great weekend cooking project (that kids just love). It often goes into my freezer so I have fresh whole wheat (inexpensive) pasta for the coming month! The dough can make whatever shape you like (bowtie, pene, etc). Then you are ready during the weekdays to just throw some into a soup; or in roasted veggies and a little olive oil & garlic, or just add a simple tasty sauce. The goodness of homemade in minutes! I make a batch of this dough and roll into 4 equal size balls (each ball equals one 'serving') as they make all four of my favorite types of pasta (or you could do just one big batch of linguini, etc). I use one ball for Spinich & Mozzerella Ravioli; 1 for chicken breast & fresh parmesean tortellini; 1 for linguini and the last ball for angelhair pasta. OR the recipe could easily be cut down for doing just one of the pastas. Remember, fresh pasta cooks a lot faster than storebought. I boil my linguini only 4 minutes (even quicker than many packaged side dishes). You just have to keep testing the pasta until it is still a little bit firm (aldente). Do not rinse as it will continue to cook in the bowl a bit).
