If you have ever wanted to make your own fresh pasta, this easy recipe shows how semolina flour, salt and water are kneaded into a simple dough, then rolled and cut into shapes. Durum semolina flour may be found at specialty grocers.
Use cream sherry to enrich a tasty mix of tomatoes, garlic, basil, mint, olive oil and hot pepper flakes. After steeping for two hours, use some of the liquid to flavor hot pasta. Add Asiago and fontina cheese, then toss everything together.
This salad is best served warm so all of the fabulous flavors can strut their stuff. The veggies are roasted for this salad and then combined with bow tie pasta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and a splash of olive oil.
