Pasta Salad with Weston Seasonings

One of the many great things about our seasonings is that they're highly versatile. We used Sweet Italian and Black Pepper & Garlic in this pasta salad, but you can get creative and use just about any of our seasonings in the right flavor combinations. 

- Ingredients -

Homemade Pasta
1 cup flour (we used whole wheat, but you can feel free to use all purpose here)
1 extra large egg

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon vinegar (we used our Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar)
1 small cucumber, diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
¼ cup black olives, sliced
a handful shredded Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons Weston Sweet Italian Sausage Seasoning
½ teaspoon Weston Garlic & Pepper Jerky Seasoning

- Tools -
Weston Pasta Machine

Step One | Homemade Pasta

In a large bowl, pour in the flour and make a mound from it. Dig a well into the center of the mound. Break the egg into the center, then use a fork to gradually mash the flour into the egg. Continue until you have a stretchy, uniform dough. Let rest 30 minutes, covered in plastic wrap, or placed into a plastic bag.

Put a pot of water on to boil.

Use a Pasta Machine to roll the dough into a medium-thick sheet (setting 4 on our manual machine).

Roll the dough through the Spaghetti rollers.

Once the water is boiling, drop in the fresh noodles. Boil 3 minutes, or until al dente.  Strain, then rinse in cold water for 1 minute.

Step Two | Mix

Toss the noodles with the cucumbers, tomatoes and black olives, then pour in the oil & vinegar and toss again to coat. Sprinkle in the seasonings and cheese and toss a final time to coat.

Our Sweet Italian and Black Pepper & Garlic seasonings sit back and marvel at their work

Refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
