How to Make reddish pasta dough with roasted, puréed red peppers
If you're making homemade pasta at home, you're not making "homemade" if you're not kneading the dough yourself. That means no pre-made pasta from the store! Forget the rigatoni on the shelf. Forget the penne pasta. Forget the ziti! If you didn't make it and shape it yourself, you didn't actually make a home-cooked pasta for dinner.
But how to you make the pasta from dough? Roberta Dowling shares her secret recipe for Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Dough— and it's the best you'll ever make! Red bell peppers are roasted and puréed, then incorporated into fresh pasta dough. The resulting color will defy any sauce to match its vibrant hue. Shape them however you like!
