Giveaway: Philips Electric Pasta Machine

#MyPastaDream

If you’ve been following me on Facebook or Instagram then you would know that I have been playing around with the Philips Electric Pasta Machine. Have you ever tried making pasta by hand? There’s a real knack to getting the dough right and then you have to crank it through a pasta machine that will make even the buffest dude sweat.

Thank goodness this process has now gone Electric! Even though loadshedding and power outages are a reality, you can go from flour to pasta in less than 10 minutes. Which means you can literally have a meal ready in 10 minutes if you warm up some pasta sauce while the pasta machine is doing its thing!

In case you missed it, here’s the unboxing video:

As well as a little demo on how easy it is to use:

    Creamy vegan garlic pasta with roasted tomatoes :

    Ingredients:

    450 g grape tomatoes
    300g whole wheat pasta (such as penne, linguini, or fettuccine // use less if you want a higher sauce:pasta ratio
    Olive oil
    1/2 an onion
    8 large garlic cloves
    1 pinch each sea salt and black pepper
    30g flour (or another thickener of choice)
    600 ml unsweetened plain Almond Milk (sub up to 1 cup with veggie stock, if preferred)

    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and toss tomatoes in a bit of olive oil and sea salt. Place cut side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes while you prepare the rest of the dish. Then set aside.

    2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package instructions. When done, drain, cover and set aside.

    3. In the meantime, prepare the sauce. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, add 1 Tbsp (15 ml // use more, as needed, if increasing batch size) olive oil and the garlic and shallot. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper and stir frequently, cooking for 3-4 minutes until softened and fragrant.

    4. Stir in flour (or other thickener of choice – see notes) and mix with a whisk. Once combined, slowly whisk in the almond milk a little at a time so clumps don’t form. Add another healthy pinch of salt and black pepper, bring to a simmer and continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. (Optional: You can also add some nutritional yeast)
    Once the sauce is to your desired thickness, taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

    5. Then add pasta and roasted tomatoes and stir.

    Serve immediately and garnish with extra black pepper, fresh basil, and/or vegan parmesan cheese.

    How exciting!
    Here’s my recipe – wors, biltong, madumbes and cape malay curry flavouring. Some distinctly South African favourites

    Flavours of SA Spaghetti

    Ingredients
    Madumbe Pasta
    • 2 cups madumbe cooked, peeled and mashed
    • 3 eggs, at room temperature
    • 3 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder (optional)

    Cheesy Cape Malay Boerewors and Biltong Kebab Chutney
    • 500 gram boerewors sausages
    • 1 large grated onion
    • 1 tablespoon coriander
    • 1 tablespoon chives or mint
    • 1 teaspoon ginger and garlic mix
    • 1 or 2 green chilies (depending on how hot you want your chutney)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 x canned tomatoes
    • Cape Malay Curry powder
    • ¼ cup diced biltong
    • ¼ cup grated cheese
    • ¼ cup cream cheese (flavour of your choice)

    Method

    Pasta: Bring some water to a boil in a large saucepan and cook the madumbe until soft. Drain and mash the madumbe into a puree. Set aside to cool down, then mix in the beaten eggs. Place flour, salt and turmeric into pasta machine and follow the Avance Pasta Machine directions to create your home made Madumbe Spaghetti.

    Cheesy Boerewors and Biltong Kebabs: Gently remove the boerewors mince from the its casing and keep the casing aside for later. Fry onion until golden brown and add half to the mince, along with coriander, chives/mint and salt. Pound the until it becomes firm. Leave aside.
    In a separate bowl combine the grated cheese, cream cheese and diced biltong and mix well. Make small balls out of this mixture and encase in pieces of the sausage casing. You can knot the casing ends or simply fold down edges. The purpose of encasing it is to prevent the cheese from melting through your kebabs and causing them to break apart when you fry them later so make sure there are no holes. Once you have finished encasing all your biltong and cheese balls, wrap each one in the boerewors mince mixture to make your boerewors kebabs with biltong and cheese centre. Wrap them up as firm as possible and refrigerate for about an hour to set. Pop your kebabs in to an airfryer or fry over the stove top until browned and fully cooked. Set aside

    Cape Malay Chutney: Add ginger and garlic and chili to the remaining onion and sauté for a few minutes to release the flavours. Add canned tomato and Cape Malay Curry Spice to your preferred taste. Allow to simmer and gravy to thicken. Once cooked top your chutney with your cooked kebabs.

    Finally top your cooked Madumbe Spaghetti with your Cheesy Cape Malay Boerewors and Biltong Kebab Chutney. Garnish with some shredded biltong and parsley and enjoy!

    #MyPastaDream would be ravioli filled with oxtail meat shredded off the bone and the gravy would be the sauce. Finely grate Parmesan cheese over it and serve with coleslaw, green salad, beets and atchar/veg pickle for that authentic 7 colours meal that South Africans do so well!

    Chocolate Dessert Pasta with Peppermint Crisp

    Chocolate Pasta:
    * 2½ cups all purpose flour
    * ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder.
    * ¼ cup powdered sugar
    * Pinch of salt
    * 3 large eggs
    * 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla

    Chocolate hazelnut cream sauce
    * 1 cup heavy cream
    * 1 cup hazelnut spread
    * Pinch of salt
    * 1 small Peppermint Crisp bar, chopped

    For the pasta: Sift together flour, cocoa and sugar. Add a pinch of salt and mound the flour mixture in a large bowl.
    Hollow out the centre, making a well in the middle off the flour with steep sides.
    Break the eggs into the well. Add the chocolate syrup and vanilla. Gently mix with fork.
    Gradually incorporate the flour by pulling in the flour from the sides of the well. As you incorporate more of the flour, the dough will start to take shape.

    Knead the dough on a clean work surface until it becomes smooth, about 8 minutes.
    Shape into a disc, cover with plastic wrap and rest in fridge for 30 minutes.
    Divide dough into quarters and work with one piece at a time.
    Flour each piece lightly, shape into a rectangular shape and put through a pasta sheeter attachment starting at the widest setting.
    Then run the pasta through the sheeter attachment once on every number stopping at 5. Lightly flour the rolled out pasta sheet and fold in half.
    Take a knife and cut into ribbons, then unravel the ribbons and place on floured baking sheet to keep from sticking.

    For the sauce: Bring the cream to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in chocolate hazelnut spread. Add a pinch of salt and continue whisking until the sauce is creamy. Remove from heat and add the chopped peppermint crisp bar.

    Cook the chocolate pasta in a large pot of boiling water, 3 minutes.
    Immediately remove the pasta from water and toss gently with the sauce.
    Enjoy

    My chicken Ala King recipe goes like this, boil pasta, then for the chicken Ala King you need chicken, mushrooms, green pepper, milk, chicken Ala King knor packet sauce and cheese. You start your sauce with browning half and onion, then put in chicken and mushrooms, once cooked, mix packet sauce in milk and pour over chicken and mushroom, once its start to get thick add pepper (I like it crunchy, u can add with chicken and mushroom if you like it soft). Once sauce is think enough you take of stove and add to pasta. Mix pasta and sauce together. Add cheese on top. Simply delicious.

    The ULTIMATE South African Pasta!
    Biltong & Droewors infused spaghetti with a Tomato Bredie sauce that has been slow cooked in a potjie on the braai (due to loadshedding previously), served up in a Bunny Chow with Nik Nak crumbles on top and Mrs Balls chutney on the side!

    *SIDE NOTE* in the 10min it takes to make the pasta (in the most amazing pasta machine ever wink wink nudge nudge) – it is compulsory to drink a cup of rooibos tea and eat some melk tert for best South African results. Lekker! 😀

    Is there anything more south african than boerewors? How about boerewors pasta (of course made in the Phillips pasta maker 😍) with a tomato basil sauce all sourced from my own garden 😋 the best thing about being creative and having this pasta maker is that I can trick my daughter (and hubs) to eat more veggies by sneaking it in their noodles 💜

    BBQ Peri-peri Prawns
    Preparation time : 2-3 hours
    Cooking time : 10 – 15 mins
    Servings : 5
    Ingredients
    250 g melted butter
    6 medium-sized red chillies – chopped really fine
    3 cloves garlic – chopped fine
    2 tsp sea salt (don’t use table salt, it’s too harsh)
    pinch ground white pepper
    handful of chopped chives
    2 Tbs lemon juice
    1 tsp smoked Spanish paprika
    15 medium (prince) prawns
    Method
    Place all the ingredients apart from the prawns in a bowl, and mix well.
    Defrost the prawns overnight in the fridge or in cold water.
    If the prawns are not deveined and pre-cleaned then please do so. (Deveining a prawn is really important. It involves cutting a thin line along the back of a prawn from just behind its head to the tail. Pull that black vein out. Stick your pinkie finger inside the head under running water to remove the innardsof the prawn.)
    Rinse thoroughly. (You want the shell and head to remain intact though!)
    Stick a bamboo skewer through the prawns, lengthways from the tail to the head.
    You want it to keep the prawn straight; you don’t really need it to be sticking out on both sides.
    Pour the marinade mixture over your prawns, and let them marinate for 2–3 hours at room temperature covered in an airtight container.
    When your fire is at a medium heat test it with one prawn
    If it burns, wait a bit longer.
    Don’t turn the prawns too much.
    As soon as the shells of the prawns turn a bright pink colour, they are done.
    Remove them from the fire immediately.
    Prawns are easily overcooked.
    Serve.
