This is a reprise of sorts. In my earlier post I made a Chicken Fazzoletti Lasagna. This dish is vegetarian, with Pesto sauce and cheese.
Fazzoletti, or face towels, are my pasta of choice if making from scratch. Quick, easy and just yummy. The bomb in fact. They make you look really competent. And after all, what working woman has time to make innumerable fussy little pasta shapes.
As I advised myself in that earlier post, this time I first cut the dough in half before cutting again into four. I am cooking for two people here, so ignore if you need more pasta. Also as noted earlier, I rolled the dough much thinner this time around, the secret to a successful result. And, doing it in a more relaxed way, by starting early. If you want to watch Chef Laboa making the pesto and pasta, it will be more involved, but a fun watch. He uses a mortar and pestle for the pesto, I go for the food processor.
