    Maccheroni siciliani

    Recipes by Pina Messina

    A delicious hearty dish from Sicily.

    For the pasta:
    • 500g flour
    • 500g semolina
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • Water

    For the sauce:
    • Mixed mince meat
    • Garlic
    • Tomato passata
    • White wine

    1. On a clean surface, combine all of the ingredients for the pasta and work by hand until you have the dough. Divide the dough into small “loaves”.
    2. Pass each loaf through a pasta machine then cut the dough into strips.
    3. Roll each strip then hang them over a wire to dry for at least 8 hours.
    4. To make the sauce, heat oil in a large pan and cook the meat until browned.
    5. Add the garlic, wine and passata and cook for at least 2 hours.
    6. Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water. Drain.
    7. Dress the pasta in the sauce and serve hot.
