First I make a pasta dough with 100 gms durum wheat flour ( semola) per person, water and a splash of olive oil. I leave this to rest for 30 minutes. Then I take a piece of the dough and, with my hands, roll out a long thin sausage (1 cm diameter) and cut it into 2 cm lengths. With two fingers I drag each length towards me on the board, forming a groove inside each piece. I leave them to dry for an hour and cook in plenty of salted boiling water. They need 4 to 5 minutes.
It sounds complicated, but the process is a lot quicker than any other fresh pasta I make.
A nice sauce could be fresh tomato or broccoli and anchovy. Last night I made a pepper sauce with onion, anchovies, pepper and tomato which was too rich.
