250ml Chicken Stock
70g Tuscan kale/ Cavolo Nero (any robust Brassicas)
1 clove of garlic
Salt and pepper
300g Semolina 150g water
1 Add water to the semolina and knead until mix comes together, the mix should feel quite dry and quite hard to knead. Wrap and rest in the fridge for 30 mins. Using a knife or pastry card cut pasta into long strips, approx 1.5cm wide and dust with semolina.
2 Cut the strips into 1.5cm pieces and roll them with the thumb on a Cavatelli board or the back of a fork. Once these are rolled they can be stored on a tray at room temp, sprinkle with more semolina to ensure they don’t stick together.
