Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, whole wheat flour, salt, nutmeg and pepper; mix. Make a well in the center and add eggs and 2 tablespoons olive oil; beat well. In a bowl combine chestnut puree and 1/2 cup water; add to egg mixture. Incorporate flour and egg mix. Dough will be very stiff. Adjust with more flour or water. Knead for 10 minutes and allow dough to rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Cut off a handful of dough. With a rolling pin, roll 6 inch wide strips, 1/16" thick. Use a pasta machine if you have one. Dust strips with flour. Allow to slightly dry on muslin cloth. Cut into long pasta 1/4" wide. Dry for 30 minutes.
  3. Add pasta to a large pot of rapidly boiling salted water with a tablespoon of oil. Boil for 5 minutes; drain. Mix pasta with olive oil, minced garlic, Romano cheese, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Excellent pasta! The nutty taste of the chestnut gives the past an exquisite touch. It is a very flavorful pasta. I made changes to the sauce though. I sauteed 1/2 cup of minced wallnuts and 1/2 cup of scallions in olive oil and added to the cooked pasta. It was delicious! It can be stored dried too. Thanks Dave!

I used it as a starting point for making ravioli filled with truffled chestnut puree in a sage browned butter sauce. Just needed a jump off and this helped.

I have not actually made this recipe, but I think the general ideas are very good. Being a Chef I can usually tell by reading. I was just wondering where you would get chestnut puree, really don't think I want to go to the effort of making my own.
