Had some farmers market tomatoes that were developing spots. I hate wasting food and wanted to use up the tomatoes. I also had some peaches that were very ripe. I decided to try and use up the ingredients and make a salsa.
3 large tomatoes
2 large peaches
Cut the tomatoes in big chunks
Cut the peaches in big chunks
Half the onions
Cut the peppers
Preheat the grill (or broiler)
Put the tomatoes & peaches on a bake tray with some olive oil.
Sprinkle some salt over the tray
Put the tray on the grill / broiler. I left the veggies on for 5 minutes, then flipped. After the 2nd 5 minutes I put the tomatoes directly on the grill to get them charred
Simultaneously (if you have enough space) roast the peppers & the onion
Once everything is cooked, chop all the things into small bits.
Chop up the cilantro
Mix all of the ingredients into a pot, taste and add salt if necessary
Simmer the mixture for a few minutes so all of the flavors mingle
Let cool and split into containers then refrigerate.
This is our second go around of homemade pasta. It was by far easier, more successful, and took half the time
Ingredients for pasta: – 300g all purpose flour – 2 whole eggs + 3 egg yolks + water until 185g – salt
Pasta Instructions: 1. Mix the dough by hand until it’s in a ball. Knead the dough for 10-12 minutes. 2. Let it rest at room temp for 30-45minutes. 3. The cut dough ball into 4 parts, flatten them out then roll it out using the kitchen aid pasta attachment. 4. Roll each setting at least twice, until you get to 6 then run it only once. 5. Cut the dough sheet in half when it gets too long
Filling Instructions: – Mix all ingredients for the filling. – Put them in a piping bag
Putting it all together: – Squeeze out filling onto a sheet of dough in 2 rows (if wide enough) – Use a bit of water the draw the borders around the ravioli squares – Put a 2nd sheet of dough over the one with the filling – Use your fingers to make individual squares / and adhere the top dough to the bottom dough – Use bench scraper/knife to cut into individual squares – If there are air bubbles, poke a hole with something sharp and push out the air the try to seal the whole using your fingers to press on the dough
Pro Tip: Save your scrap dough, ball it up, flatten it and run it through the rollers. You can cut it into spaghetti /fettuccini
