Ingredients

For the Pasta:

  • 3 cups of Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Flour
  • 4 eggs
  • cold water as needed

For the Toppings:

  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup each sliced shiitake and portabella mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon of finely mince garlic
  • 12-15 trimmed and sliced fresh asparagus stalks
  • ¾ cup of whole milk ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese + more for garnish
  • 1 ball of burrata cheese cut into wedges
  • 6 slices of prosciutto ham
  • zest of ½ lemon
  • parsley leaves for garnish
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Linguine: Add the flour to a clean surface and make a well. Add the eggs to center of a well and whisk using a fork.
  • Gradually bring in flour from the outside until it is combined. Use a bench knife to scrape together all of the ingredients and knead for at least 7 minutes. You may need to add a bit of water if the dough is too dry.
  • Once the dough is kneaded form it into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Next, divide the dough into 3 sections and roll out each piece using a pasta roller with hand crank on the lowest setting. Next, turn the setting higher and roll the dough. Repeat until you get to #6 setting and roll it again. The dough should be a long thin sheet. Set aside on a floured surface and repeat with the other 2 dough balls. Cut the dough sheets into 10"-12" sections.
  • Add the linguine attachment, sprinkle the dough again with flour and roll out each 10"-12" cut sheets of dough and form into little pasta balls on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Rest for at least 10 minutes so that pasta can dry out a bit.
  • Pasta: Add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat and cook the mushroom until they are caramelized. Once brown, about 3 to 4 minutes add in the garlic and mix in.
  • Turn the heat to low and add in the asparagus and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the heat off.
  • Add ½ of the pasta to a large pot of boiling salted water and cook until al dente, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the pasta to the saute pan with veggies and toss in ricotta cheese, parmesan, salt and pepper and mix until combined.
  • Add the tossed pasta to a plate and garnish with prosciutto ham, sliced burrata, parmesan cheese, lemon zest and parsley.
  • Serve.
