Eat Pray Love Pasta

1 batch Fresh Pasta Dough $0.48
1/2 cup butter $0.45
5 cloves garlic, minced $0.05
1 cup half and half cream $0.88
1 egg yolk $0.17
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese $2.50
Salt $0.01

Total Cost   $4.54

1.) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Allow to boil until it’s time to place fresh pasta in the water, near the end of cooking time. Cover if pot begins to steam too much. Meanwhile, roll out pasta dough and cut into fat rectangular strips. Hang until it is time for them to cook so they do not stick together (you can also toss them with just a bit of flour.)

2.) In a large skillet over low heat, melt the butter; add garlic and cook for 2 minutes, so that garlic does not burn.

3.) Place the egg yolk in a small bowl and beat together with about 1/4 cup of cream. Pour the rest of the cream into the skillet and turn heat to medium-high, whisking constantly so the cream doesn’t burn. Bring to a boil.

4.) When the cream is boiling you then need to temper the egg. To do this, place a very small amount of the boiling cream into the bowl with the cream and egg; whisk rapidly. When thoroughly combined, add another very small amount of boiling cream to the egg mixture and whisk rapidly again. This brings the egg’s temperature up very slowly; if you added the egg straight to the pot you would wind up with scrambled eggs. Once you’ve added hot cream to the egg twice, you can then add the entire egg and cream mixture into the skillet. Stir to combine completely.

5.) Add fresh pasta to boiling water and cook for 4 – 5 minutes, until al dente. Then drain.

6.) Add 1 cup of Cheddar cheese and stir thoroughly to completely combine. Add the remaining Cheddar cheese and stir completely. When cheese sauce is well blended and completely mixed through, add drained pasta and toss to coat entirely.

7.) Serve and enjoy!
