A tasty fresh pasta dinner

My husband made this fresh home-made pasta! Oh yes, fresh pasta! He made it for the very first time but it tasted like he had made it a 100 of times! It was so good! The recipe for home-made pasta , I will post in the future,…Now, it will be this lovely supper from my husband!

Recipe: For 2 persons
About 200 gr fresh egg pasta ( bought or home – made )/ my man-made Pappardelle
olive oil
Prosciutto, 4 slices, chopped
200 gr field mushrooms, cleaned & sliced
chicken stock: 80 ml
cream or soy cream: 80 ml
Black pepper
Maldon sea salt
1 garlic clove, peeled & squeezed out
Parmesan Cheese: grated
1. Take a large cooking pot & fill with hot water. Bring to the boil. Add some salt. When boiling, add the fresh pasta & cook until al dente. This was after 3 till 5 minutes.
2. At the same time, take a large non stick pan & heat up on medium heat.
3. Add the garlic & the prosciutto & cook for about 4 minutes or until the prosciutto is crisp.
4. Add the mushrooms & fry for about 4 minutes or until the mushrooms are light brown.
5. Now, add the stock & stir. Let it reduce by half & add the cream. Stir often. Simmer for about 3 minutes & season with sea salt & freshly grind black pepper.
6. Drain the pasta & add to the pan. Toss to coat.
7. Take your 2 serving plates & put your dinner on the plates. Serve with the grated Parmesan on top.

    This sounds great! I love homemade pasta (looks like ya got a good man).

  2. This looks great! Anything with prosciutto is great in my book!

  3. Fresh pasta – the best! I could probably eat fresh pasta with a little brown butter and nothing else. Your lucky you’ve got a guy making that fresh pasta for you…a labor of love.

  4. aww that’s nice! Homemade pasta is always best!

    Isn’t fresh pasta just to die for? You’ll never want box again. Unless you’re in a super duper rush. 🙂 This looks sooooo delish! Prosciutto is tasty!

    I tried making a Pappardelle Carbonara (store bought pasta) using Bon Appètit’s recipe. Your recipe looks much more mouthwatering because I’m a huge fan of mushrooms. The home made pasta makes this dish even better.

  7. Kevin says:

    That pasta looks good! I have been wanting to try making my own pasta.

  8. Gail says:

    This looks and sounds delicious – mushrooms and prosciutto are such a good combination. One of my favourite dishes I cook is a Porcini & Prosciutto Lasagne.

  9. Peter M says:

    Sophie, I too made pappardelle this weekend…easy and so satisfying…bravo!

  10. Wow, that sounds so fantastic yet simple which is great. And bravo to your husband for making the fresh pasta! 😮
