How to make beetroot tagliatelle
Prepare the beetroot puree by blending it with an immersion blender.
Put the flour in a bowl, make a hole in the center and put the egg, salt and beetroot puree.
Knead starting from the center, gradually absorbing all the flour.
Knead until the dough is smooth and homogeneous in color.
Make a ball, cover it with a cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Now divide the dough into several pieces, flatten each one and with the help of a rolling pin or with the puff pastry roll it out until you get thin sheets.
Put the sheets on a lightly floured surface.
Take one sheet at a time, cover it with a veil of flour and close it in a package.
Now cut into strips.
Unroll the beetroot tagliatelle on a pastry board and let them dry.
Now prepare the sauce, soak the porcini mushrooms in hot water, then brown them in a pan with a knob of butter, adding the diced speck.
Cook for 7-8 minutes then add the fresh cream and season with salt and pepper.
Cook the tagliatelle in abundant salted water.
Drain them al dente and pour into the pan with the sauce.
Serve the beetroot tagliatelle with speck and porcini mushrooms on the plates, adding a sprinkling of fresh pepper.
