The home made basil noodle recipe was an absolute winner that I will be making again soon!
1 and 1/4 cups fresh basil leaves
3 cups flour
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons olive oil
Place basil in a food processor, cover and process until finely chopped. Add flour, process until blended. Add eggs, water, and oil. Process 15 - 20 seconds or until dough forms a ball. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 - 10 minutes. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. Divide into fourths.
Below you can see the dough ball in the food processor, ready to be placed on the floured board to be kneaded.
Cook noodles in boiling salted water for 4 - 5 minutes or until tender, drain and serve.
Yield is 8 servings. I made a Tuscan tomato meat ragu sauce to top our noodles.
Bravo "Taste of Home"!
