Blecs ... are on the table for PPN # 285


la ricetta in italiano qui

Blecs are a type of handmade pasta of a Northern Eastern Italian region, Friuli Venezia Giulia. They are a sort of maltagliati, but made ​​with buckwheat. They are easy and fairly quick to make and may enjoyed with so many different sauces.
And just ready to fly overseas to Val who's hosting Presto Pasta Night this week, and to Ruth, the great founder of this wekly event.

Serving 2:

80 g buckwheat flour
80 g wheat flour
50 g butter, softened

Mix the two flours with eggs and butter, adding a little water at room temperature if necessary. Leave the dough on a floured surface, covered with a bowl for at least half an hour.
A piece at a time, roll out the dough as thin as possible on a floured surface, or with a pasta machine (with a kenwood kneader stop at number 3 or 4), then cut pastry into triangles, 5cm. each side. Arrange bless on a lightly floured cloth or on a special pasta grid.
Cook blecs in boiling salted water for 3 minutes, then sauté in a large pan with your preferred sauce.


Blecs of Cjanal di Guart (Val Degano, a valley of the region):
