So, my second foray into Nigella Bites was even more ambitious!
I bought the Kitchenaid pasta roller and cutter set to help with this. Money well spent.
The meatball mixture - pork and beef, breadcrumbs, egg and herbage. I actually thought these could have used more seasoning.
Again, she likes to 'puree' her onion and garlic. Again, I think I will skip this step. Just dice those suckers and cook them down.
The sauce with meatballs. I was smart enough to do the sauce and meatballs on one night (while we ate leftovers) and the pasta the next.
The pasta dough resting. I cheated and used my Kitchenaid. Maybe I will knead by hand next time. I used semolina flour.
Rolling the pasta flat.
Cutting the pasta. The hardest part about all of this was keeping the pieces manageable. They were really long and I didn't have enough hands to keep up. So, I ended up cutting shorter pieces as I went.
Finished product. It was really good and made plenty to freeze for later. And, as with the risotto, we used the olive oil for bread-dipping.
