Ingredients

  • FOR THE PASTA
  • 500g Flour
  • 190ml Liquid (1 egg and water)
  • FOR THE BROCCOLI PESTO
  • 200g Broccoli Florets
  • 35g (1/4 cup) Pine Nuts
  • 1/2 small Garlic Clove
  • 1/2 Lemon (juice and zest)
  • 50g Grated Parmesan
  • 60ml Olive Oil
  • 4-5 Basil Leaves
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • To prepare the pasta, place flour in the mixing compartment of the Philips Pasta And Noodle Maker. Turn the pasta maker on and select the 500g program and press start. Slowly add the egg and water mixture through the liquid feeder. Once the pasta is extruding, cut to the desired length using the cutting tool.
  • To make the broccoli pesto, steam the broccoli until it is tender. Add to a food processor along with the remaining pesto ingredients. Blend until smooth. 
  • To cook the pasta, bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the pasta, place a lid on and return to the boil. Remove lid, reduce to a simmer and cook for approximately 90 seconds-4 minutes. Drain the hot water, reserving a cup. 
  • Return drained pasta to the pan and add the pesto, stir through adding a little of the pasta water to thin out the sauce.
