Homemade Macaroni with Feta
Homemade Macaroni with Feta
Method
  • In a bowl, add the water, eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the flour and mix thoroughly to create the pasta dough.
  • Place a pot full of salted water over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Position a strainer over the pot, making sure that it does not touch the boiling water directly.
  • If you don’t have a strainer, you can use a disposable aluminum baking pan that is much wider than the pot so that it can remain over the pot. Pierce it with a sharp knife to make lots of holes on the bottom and position it over the pot.
  • Add a portion of the dough in the strainer or pan.
  • Using a spatula, keep pressing down on the dough and spreading it continuously so that it passes through the holes and breaks off into pieces that fall into the boiling water and become macaroni.  
  • BE CAREFUL! This needs to be done with very quick movements so that the pasta dough doesn’t stick to the bottom of the strainer or baking pan.
  • Repeat the same process until all of the dough has been made into macaroni.
  • Boil the macaroni until they rise to the surface of the water. This should take about 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove them with a slotted spoon or drain into a strainer.
  • Transfer to a bowl, drizzle with some olive oil and toss to coat. This will keep them from sticking to one another.
  • Place a pan over high heat.
  • Add the butter, let it melt and cook until it becomes golden brown.
  • Mince the garlic, add it to the pan and sauté.
  • Add the chili flakes, some finely chopped parsley and spring onion. You can also reserve some of the parsley and spring onion for serving.
  • Add the pasta and sauté for 4-5 minutes.
  • Grate 50 g of feta cheese over the macaroni, toss and remove from heat.
  • At this point you can also add some butter for extra aroma.
  • Sprinkle with parsley, spring onions and 1 tablespoon chili flakes and gently toss to distribute.
  • Crumble the remaining 50 g of feta over the top and serve.
