Linguine


Search for Linguine recipes and they will all talk about your pasta maker, that is if you own one, but they are not necessary, you think hundreds of years ago they existed? Ok a machine makes it easier and you get a more consistent pastry but without a pasta maker you can still follow this very simple recipe.

Linguine recipes  My name is Roz but lots call me Rosie.  Welcome to Rosies Home Kitchen.  I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.  It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.  My two sons now have their own families but live near by and Im now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.  My cooking is home cooking, but often with a French twist, my videos are not there to impress but inspire, So many people say that they cant cook, but we all can, you just got to give it a go.

400gms Plain Flour

Pinch of salt

4 eggs

Once the dough is formed, use a pastry maker to roll out the pasrty or roll it out on a floured surface, then fold once.

Then use a knife or a pasta cutter to cut into half centimetre(ish) strips, to help dry out the pasta and to stop it sticking place on a semolina floured tray.

Cook in lightly salted boiling water for 4-5 minutes till “a la Dente”, with just a little bite.

If using for a dish such as a Carbanara cook fresh and use the water to thin out the sauce. Linguine pasta can be frozen as a ball of pastry or roll the cut pastry in a spiral and freeze.
