Homemade Strozzapreti Pasta


Strozzapreti are Italian hand rolled pasta! Try making them!

For the strozzapreti

  • Combine all of the ingredients for the dough in a bowl. When ready, wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Dust a working surface with flour. Roll out the dough until it is 2 mm thick. Dust with more flour if necessary.
  • Slice off the ends to create a rectangular shape. Then cut into 1 cm strips, like making tagliatelle.
  • Roll each strip between both hands, twisting them between your palms. Use your palm as a guide, cutting them into pieces that are the length of our palm.
  • When all of the dough has been turned into strozzapreti, dust them with flour and toss, so they won’t stick together. Boil them in salted water for 5 minutes.

For the sauce

  • Chop the eggplant into cubes.
  • Place a pan over medium to high heat and sauté the eggplant with some olive oil, until golden on all sides.
  • When ready, transfer to a bowl.
  • Wipe down pan with some paper towels.  Sauté the onion with a little olive oil until translucent. Then add the garlic and continue to sauté. If you add the garlic from the start, it will burn.
  • Add the red pepper, carrot, eggplant, tomato, salt and pepper.
  • Simmer for about 5 minutes over medium heat.
  • Add the boiled pasta. Stir to combine.
  • Top with garnish.. the spring onion, herbs and crumbled feta cheese. Serve.
