- 21/2 cups flour
- 1 cup semolina flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup dry red wine
- 1 recipe lumache alla marchigiana
To prepare pasta:
As you expand the well, keep pushing the flour up to retain the well shape. Do not worry that this initial phase looks messy. The dough will come together when half of the flour is incorporated.
Start kneading the dough with both hands, using the palms of your hands. Once you have a cohesive mass, remove the dough from the board and scrape up any leftover crusty bits. Discard these bits. Lightly flour the board and continue kneading for 3 more minutes. The dough should be elastic and a little sticky. Continue to knead for another 3 minutes, remembering to dust your board when necessary. Wrap the dough in plastic and allow to rest for 30 minutes at room temperature.
Bring 6 quarts water to boil and add 2 tablespoons salt.
Heat snail recipe (lumache alla marchigiana) to boil and set aside.
