LIST OF INGREDIENTS


3 1/2 CUPS of whole wheat flour

7 OZ. of squash

3/4 CUP of ricotta cheese

4 large eggs

2 artichokes

2 sprigs wild fennel

1 lemon, halved

1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed

red chili pepper

extra-virgin olive oil

salt


METHOD


  1. Pile the flour in a mound on a flat work surface. Make a well in the center and add the eggs into the well. Use a fork to gradually draw in the flour from the inside of the well. Continue until all the flour is incorporated and knead until it forms a smooth ball. Set aside in a bowl covered in plastic wrap for at least 1 hour.

  2. Meanwhile, squeeze juice from the lemon into a large bowl of cold water.

  3. Trim the artichokes and slice into ⅛” thick slices. Place slices into the lemon water as you work, keeping them completely submerged.

  4. Cut the squash into 1/4" cubes.

  5. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the artichokes and squash with 1/2 red chili pepper, and garlic. Let cook for 3-5 minutes and remove the garlic.

  6. Remove the dough from the plastic wrap and divide into quarters. Keep remaining dough covered while working each section. Roll out into ⅛” thick sheets. Cut into ¾” wide strips with a fluted pasta cutter wheel to form the pappardelle.

  7. Bring water to a boil in a 6 qt. pot. Season with salt. Add the pappardelle.

  8. In the meantime, add the ricotta to a large saucepan over low heat and dilute with 1/4 cup pasta cooking water. When the pappardelle is cooked to al dente with a slotted spoon drain to the saucepan and stir to mix. Top with artichokes and squash.

  9. Divide pasta among bowls and garnish with wild fennel.
