  • 500g 00 flour
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Tomato Sauce

  • 2 cups Minzano® tomatoes, halved
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 16 basil leaves, hand torn
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp Kosher salt


  • Place flour in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add egg yolks, salt and 1/4 cup of water. Using the dough attachment, mix until combined. Start on the slowest setting and gradually increase speed as ingredients combine. If your mixture is too dry, add more water one tablespoon at a time. Once a ball begins forming, remove, form into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.
  • Once rested, bring dough to room temperature, then cut into 5 equal-sized pieces. Using a rolling pin, flatten each portion. Run the dough through a pasta roller, beginning on the #1 setting. Remove and fold ends into the center. Flour dough and run through the same setting once more. Run the dough through each setting twice, folding the dough into the center after each pass through until you have reached the final #5 setting. Cut each piece into long ribbons, approximately 3″ x 6″.
  • Cover fresh pasta with a very lightly damped tea towel until you are ready to cook.

Minzano® Sauce

  • Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Sauté garlic until lightly browned. Add tomatoes and sauté for a couple minutes or until tomatoes soften. Add pine nuts and salt. Turn on low to keep warm while you cook pasta.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Once boiling, cook pasta ribbons for 2 minutes, then strain and add pasta to sauce.
  • Portion and plate then garnish with torn basil, freshly grated Parmesan and cracked black pepper.
