Cooking Time



For the pasta

  • 275g pasta flour ‘type 00’
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 whole egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 15g extra virgin olive oil

For the vegetable mixture

(You can use any vegetables you have in the fridge. The given vegetables are just a guide line.)

  • 1 medium red pepper, cut into small dice
  • 1 medium red onion, peeled and cut into small dice
  • 50g peas
  • 50g fine green beans
  • 100g spinach, washed, dried and shredded
  • 5 asparagus spears, peeled and trimmed
  • 1/4th bunch parsley, washed, dried and finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 15ml vegetable oil
  • 15ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 100g crème fraîche
  • Drizzle of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


To make the pasta

  • Prepare the pasta by mixing the salt, extra virgin olive oil and the pasta flour in a medium size mixing bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre. Add the eggs and knead to a smooth dough.
  • Cover with cling-film and allow to rest for at least 30 minutes before using.
  • After the pasta is rested, roll as thin as possible so that the pasta can easily pass through the pasta rolling machine.
  • Start on a highest setting and pass the pasta through the pasta roller once. Fold the pasta so that the width corresponds to the width of the pasta roller.
  • Then, start rolling the pasta by reducing the pasta roller setting until you reach no.6 on the roller.
  • Pass the rolled sheets through the linguini cutter. Flour them well and leave on the side to rest (you can use shop bought linguini but home-made is much nicer).
  • Boil water in a stock pan, sprinkle rock salt and some extra virgin olive oil.
  • Blanch the linguini for maximum 30 seconds (3-7 minutes for shop bought) and refresh in ice water or very cold water.
  • Drain and drizzle more olive oil to prevent the linguini from sticking to each other.

To make the vegetables

  • Take a large sauté pan, heat the vegetable and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Add onions and pepper and quickly sauté for a minute.
  • Add the chopped garlic, toss well.
  • Add a cube of butter and about 20ml of water then add the spinach, asparagus, peas and green beans.
  • Season with salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the linguini and toss and then finish with crème fraiche and drizzle of lemon juice.
  • Check for the seasoning.
  • Sprinkle parsley and serve.
  • Chef’s Tip: You can grate parmesan or cheddar cheese on the top for extra flavour, drizzle some more extra virgin olive oil if preferred.
