Make your pasta. Not sure how? Here I explain how to make the best homemade pasta in the world.
Now for our recipe. All you need is to make the filling!
You’re going to need:
- butternut squash or pumpkin, chopped and baked tossed with oil, salt and vinegar
- grated parmesan
Remove the skin from the pumpkin. Put it in a bowl and add a dash of nutmeg and grated parmesan. Blend. Taste for seasoning and adjust.
Once rolled, the pasta dried very quickly. Either you live in a humid place, do this on a rainy day or be very careful. If it’s a dry day in Spain, only roll the dough you are ready to use immediately and keep the rest covered in cling film.
Roll a long strip and place a teaspoon of filling about 6cm from the next. Once you’ve done that, roll another strip and cover.
Carefully press the dough together around the filling – try and remove all air bubbles that might break the pasta when it’s boiling.
