Green Garganelli with Braised GreensLaura Sharrad
- 1 bunch cavolo nero, stalks removed & finely chopped
- 1 brown onion, finely diced
- 1 long red chilli, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 4 anchovy fillets, chopped
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 50g butter
- 100g grated parmigiano cheese
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Sea salt flakes
- Freshly cracked black pepper
- 00 flour 400g
- Semolina 40g
- Eggs 170g
- Green puree 70
- Olive oil 10g
- Sea salt flakes 10g
- Bring a large pot of salted boiling water to the boil.
- Combine all ingredients in a stand mixer or processor to make your dough. Rest your dough for at least half an hour before rolling out. Roll your pasta & laminate three times, rolling from the thickest setting to the thinest. Cut your squares – then begin to roll them on your rigamonti or desired surface using a wooden rod to get your cylinder-like shape.
- Cook your pasta in the salted boiling water for 2 minutes, or until al dente in texture.
- In a large fry pan, add a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and begin to fry off the onion, garlic, chilli and anchovies. Once the sofrito base has softened, add in the braised greens and begin to gently fry off – then deglaze with the white wine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add a ladle of cooking water to help loosen the sauce, add the cooked pasta, the butter and a good handful of the grated parmigiano cheese and toss to emulsify until thick and glossy.
- Serve with extra parmigiano cheese grated over the top.
