How to Get Laid (by pasta)

*Turns on sexy and cheesy music*

Well hello. What brings you here today?

If you’ve got a hot date and you’re looking to score, may I suggest… Whole wheat pasta with porcini ricotta filling, slathered in a brown butter brandy sauce. Yeah, it’s a mouthful, but… thatswhatyourehopingshesgonnasay.

Let’s cut right to third base:

Whole Wheat Pasta Dough
1 C semolina flour
2/3 C whole wheat flour
1/3 C AP flour
Some salt
2 T toasted wheat germ
1/4 C water
1 T water
2 Eggs

Mix all the dry stuff, then toss the liquids in the center. Knead until smooth, then let it sit for about half an hour to let the gluten develop.

Ricotta Mix
1 lb ricotta cheese
2 T powdered porcini mushrooms (like, 4-5 whole pieces put in a spice grinder)
onion & garlic powders
salt
Romano cheese

Make into ravioli. Either use a machine with a setting like I did above (I preferred the chewiness of a level 5 dough over the thinner level 6 dough, which was a little more tender). Boil, then make a brown butter sauce (butter, just lightly browned, some herbs, and when it’s all done, a touch of brandy – STEP THE F BACK, it will light on fire for a few seconds, and thankfully I was more than 2 steps away, ’cause I was ready to grab the baking soda and douse the fire out.)


The homerun’s up to you, tiger. I hear a bottle of Boone’s farm or Riunite really helps.
