Lock your children up, Katy bar the door. BigMike got himself a KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment set... I've been wanting one for so long - I make ok noodles and hand roll them, but it's not the same. I kept looking on eBay and online for the best deal. Suddenly Friday a seller in Florida had the set called KPRA for $129.00 with free USPS Priority Mail shipping included. Pulled the trigger. I got the obligatory email from the seller that he would be shipping it - well darn it, the thing arrived Monday in the mail - really fast delivery. WOW. So today I am making a sourdough round (Day 6 of my starter) and using a leftover sweet potato and a bit of homemade curry powder for pasta my dough. Mis en Place 1 cup cooked sweet potato 2-3 cups Bread Flour (no semolina in the house or I would have done half semolina/half bread flour) 1 cup water 1 tsp salt 1 scant tsp homemade curry powder Preparation: Peel sweet potato and add to mixer, add 2 cups flour, the salt, curry powder and half the water. Using dough hook start mixer on low until it starts mashing the sweet potato into the flour, add a bit more water and increase speed to medium. Beat for about 3 minutes - you want to see the dough totally pull away from the sides of the bowl, when the bowl edges are clean stop the mixer and add about another 1/2 cup flour. Mix on slow and then medium. Add flour until the dough barely holds together - you want the dough like a great pie crust, a little hard to pull together. Work dough about 5 more minutes, by then you will have clean bowl sides and the dough will be nice and tight. Remove from mixer and cover with plastic wrap to rest an hour. Break dough into fourths and roll out and cut into your favorite shape. Having the luxury of the cutter attachments I will roll out and fold the dough in the roller attachment until I've worked the gluten a little more, then take each sheet it produces down into the thickness you want and cut fettucine. I'm going to do up a "sauce" of sauteed sliced mushrooms, chopped onions and a garnish of chopped scallions and parsley at the end. Cook the pasta, add a little of the pasta water to the saute pan your vegetables are in and combine the pasta into the vegetable pan. Then garnish with a little butter and some grated cheese off the heat. Sounds like a weird combination but I'm betting it'll be pretty good. Photos later.
