Strascinati with tomato sauce


For the homemade pasta dough

  • In the mixer (or with your hands), knead the ingredients until you get a nice, thick, but velvety dough.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

For the strascinati

  • Divide the dough into 4 pieces and shape thin ropes with each piece.
  • Cut the dough ropes into 3-4 cm pieces. 
  • Place each piece on a chopping board or a sushi mat or a ridged placemat. With your 4 fingers, press and roll the dough piece at the same time. This movement will widen the dough, it will make it twist and -especially if you do this process on the placemat or sushi mat- nice ridges will be formed.
  • At the same time, put plenty of water in a pot over heat. 
  • As soon as it boils, add some salt and then the pasta. Boil it for 4-5 minutes, depending on its size. 
  • Drain the pasta and keep it warm, while you set aside 50-70 g of the water where it boiled. 
  • Prepare the sauce by processing the garlic, the tomato, the sugar, the salt, the pepper, and the olive oil in a food processor. 
  • Pour the sauce over the pasta, sprinkle with grated mizithra cheese, garnish with a few basil leaves, and serve with freshly ground pepper.
