BLT Pasta Salad

- Ingredients - 

1 cup flour
1 extra large egg
1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup mayo
3 garlic cloves, smashed
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup loosely packed Italian parsley

3 strips crispy bacon
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup chopped romaine lettuce

- Tools - 
Weston Tube Pasta Machine
(you can also make this pasta salad with any other type of noodle, so feel free to use your traditional pasta machine instead)
Weston Manual Kitchen Kit with Chopper inserted

Step One | Make Pasta 

Assemble the Dough Mixing Kit in the Pasta Machine. Pour in the flour, oil and egg. Turn the handle to mix the dough until uniform, about five minutes. If using a traditional pasta machine, use the well method to prepare your dough.

Remove the Kit from the Tube Pasta Machine and assemble it for pasta making, using the macaroni die. Feed the dough into the auger and turn the handle to extrude the macaroni from the die. Use the included spatula to cut the macaroni. If using a traditional pasta machine, feed the dough into the rollers to flatten, then feed the dough sheet into the noodle cutter.

Once all of your noodles are prepared, put a pot of water on to boil. Once boiling, add the noodles and cook for 3 minutes, then drain.

Step Two | Prepare Dressing

While the noodles boil, combine all dressing ingredients in the Kitchen Kit, then turn the handle to chop, about one minute.

Step Three | Assemble

In a large bowl, mix together fresh noodles, dressing, bacon, tomatoes and lettuce. Chill for a few hours, then serve. If you don't plan to serve the pasta salad right after chilling, you may want to keep the lettuce, bacon & tomatoes separate from the pasta & dressing, and add them just before serving.
