Beet Pasta Ingredients:

4 cups “OO” flour

1 large beet, roasted

4 large eggs

5 large egg yolks

Salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Clean the beet well and dry. Rub the beet with olive oil, and then salt. Roast the beet in the oven for 1 hour. Let cool, and remove skin. Puree the beet in a high-speed blender.

Make a mound on the table with the flour and make a well in the center. Beat the eggs, egg yolks and beet in a bowl and add to the well. Add the 2 tablespoons of oil to the egg mixture, and salt to the whole mound. Using a fork start taking a little flour at a time from the inner well and add it into the egg mixture, stirring to incorporate. Continue doing this until the mixture starts to form a dough. Using your hands brings everything together and knead the dough until smooth. This will take about 10-12 minutes. Once the dough is smooth, wrap in plastic wrap tightly and let rest for at least 30 minutes. Once rested you are now ready to use the dough to make any pasta of your choice.
