Homemade Pasta with Asparagus, Clams & Mussels

Pasta dough ingredients

1/2kg flour

240gm egg yolks

pinch of salt

1/2 tsp olive oil


Sauce ingredients

30 stems of wild asparagus

150gm tomatoes

1/5kg mussels & clams

1 clove Garlic

1 Fresh Chilli

100ml White Wine



1. Place flour in a mound on a clean surface, making a well in the centre. Add eggs, olive oil & salt and gently whisk with a fork, drawing in the flour as you go. Bring dough together and kneed for 5-6 minutes until smooth and elastic. Sprinkle with additional flour, wrap with plastic wrap and let sit for 30 minutes. 

2. Roll down pasta dough with a pasta machine into 1.5mm thick and 2cm wide ribbons. Cook in salted boiling water until soft but still al dente.

3. In a saucepan, sweat off garlic and chilli for a few minutes on medium heat. Add mussels and clams, and deglaze with white wine until they open. Mix in tomato and roughly chopped wild asparagus and cook for 3 minutes. 

4. Add cooked pasta to the mussel & clam mixture and finish with light extra virgin olive oil. 

*if you're unable to find wild asparagus, normal asparagus will work just fine with this recipe

Buon Appetito!
