Handmade Vegan Fettuccine Pasta
There is nothing quite like fresh homemade, handmade pasta.This Easy Recipe for Handmade Vegan Fettuccine Pasta Recipe is dedicated to all the pasta lovers out there. Not only is this super easy, it has no white flour or egg but has the goodness of Semolina and Beetroot.
Dried pasta is easily available everywhere. But making fresh Pasta with your own hands is a special experience. Normally egg is an essential ingredient for fresh pasta dough. Here I am sharing an egg free version. Adding Beetroot lends a vibrant color and earthy flavor.
Once you have the basic pasta dough ready, make pasta in any shape that you want. I chose fettuccine since it is not only easy to make, it is also super quick. And hence by spending just a few minutes, at least 8 servings will be ready in no time.
Use this Beet Fettuccine for any Pasta Recipe of your choice. You can even cut broad strips and use them as Lasagna sheets.
If you have a Pasta Machine, try using the same dough to make spaghetti.
History of Pasta
Pasta is one of the world’s most accessible foods. Nearly every country has its own unique version of this popular, inexpensive staple. In Germany and Hungary they have spaetzles. In Greeze, orzo. In Poland, they enjoy pocket-like pierogi. Ashkenazi Jewish families make kreplach dumplings. And in America, pasta is prepared and served similarly to the way it is found in Italy– with the exception of all-American spaghetti and meatballs. In fact, when many of us think of pasta we think of Italian food, and most people believe that it originated there. While pasta is traditionally Italian, it actually has a very ancient history that makes it almost impossible to know who came up with the dish first.
