Gnocchi alla Romana

Source : https://foodwishes.blogspot.ca/2016/10/roman-style-gnocchi-no-potatoes-were.html

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 1/4 cup semolina
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (only about 1.25 ounces by weight, but if you grate it on a microplane, it will easily fill a cup)
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter for the top
  • more grated Parmigiano-Reggiano for the top

Direction:

  1. Line a rimmed sheet pan with plastic wrap.
  2. Place milk and salt in a saucepan. Bring almost to a simmer over medium-high heat. As soon as bubbles start to break the surface of the milk, gradually whisk in the semolina. Whisk until semolina becomes thick, about 20 seconds. Reduce heat to medium-low; continue stirring with a wooden spoon until very thick, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add butter, grated cheese, and egg yolks. Stir quickly to prevent the yolks from cooking.
  3. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and spread out evenly. Cover with another piece of plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm enough to cut, about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Brush a round, shallow baking dish with butter.
  5. Using a round 2 3/4-inch cookie cutter, cut out circles of the semolina dough. Arrange in a circular overlapping pattern in the prepared baking dish.
  6. With your damp hands, form the scraps of dough into a small ball. Flatten and place between 2 pieces of plastic wrap to flatten to the same thickness of the other dough. Cut out a few more rounds and arrange in center of circle.
  7. Drizzle melted butter over gnocchi and brush it over them evenly. Sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper and a generous dusting of grated cheese.
  8. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Pierogis

Source : http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/homemade-pierogi-recipe

Note :

Yield: 1 to 2 dozen pierogi, depending on size

Ingrédients :

Dough

Filling

  • 1 cup warm mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

To finish

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 large shallots, diced; OR one medium onion, thinly sliced

Préparation :

  1. To make the dough: Mix together the flour and salt. Add the egg to the flour and combine. The dough will be quite clumpy at this stage.
  2. Work in the sour cream and soft butter until the dough comes together in a slightly rough, slightly sticky ball.
  3. Using just your fingertips, knead and fold the dough without adding additional flour until the dough becomes less sticky but still quite moist.
  4. Wrap the dough well in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes, or up to 48 hours.
  5. To make the filling: Combine the warm mashed potato and cheese. Stir and mash until the cheese is melted and the filling is cool to the touch. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.
  6. To fill the pierogi: Roll half the dough 1/8″ thick. Use a 2″ round cutter to cut circles of dough. Repeat with the other half of the dough. Save the scraps; these can be snipped into small pieces and added to simmering soups.
  7. Place 2 teaspoons of filling on each round of dough. Gently fold the dough over, forming a pocket around the filling. Pinch the edges of the pierogi to seal, then seal again with the tines of a fork.
  8. At this point the pierogi can be frozen for up to 4 weeks, or refrigerated overnight, or cooked in a large stockpot of boiling salted water. Only cook about 10 pierogi at a time, so that they have room to float without sticking. When the pierogi float after about 10 minutes, they’re done.
  9. Sauté the shallots or onion in the butter i a large skillet until the onion begins to brown. Add the drained pierogi and cook until browned and crisped. Serve hot with additional sour cream, applesauce, or other condiments.

 

Nouilles au boeuf

Source : http://www.ricardocuisine.com/recettes/4704-nouilles-au-boeuf

Notes : J’utilise un paquet de nouilles aux oeufs de 500g et j’augmente la quantité de bouillon de poulet à 1 1/4 tasses.  Je n’ajoute pas de sel.  Je prépare d’abord la sauce et je fais cuire les pâtes pendant ce temps.

Ingrédients :

 

  • 15 ml (1 c. à soupe) de sauce soya

Préparation :

  1. Coupe et prépare tes ingrédients.
  2. Dans une grande casserole, fais bouillir beaucoup d’eau salée (environ 2 litres / 8 tasses). Ajoute les nouilles et remue jusqu’à ce que l’eau recommence à bouillir. Cuis les nouilles environ 10 minutes ou jusqu’à ce que la texture soit légèrement al dente. Égoutte les nouilles dans une passoire et mélange-les avec un peu d’huile d’olive pour éviter qu’elles collent ensemble. Mets-les de côté.
  3. Dans une grande poêle antiadhésive, cuis l’oignon dans le beurre huile d’olive à feu moyen en remuant avec une cuillère de bois jusqu’à ce qu’il soit doré.
  4. Ajoute la viande et l’ail. Poursuis la cuisson à feu élevé en défaisant la viande en petits morceaux avec la cuillère jusqu’à ce qu’elle soit légèrement dorée.
  5. Ajoute du sel et du poivre. Saupoudre la farine et la poudre de chili sur la viande et mélange bien.
  6. Ajoute le bouillon, la sauce soya, la sauce Worcestershire puis le fromage. Remue jusqu’à ce que le fromage soit fondu.
  7. Ajoute les nouilles et mélange pour bien les enrober de sauce. Retire la casserole du feu et laisse reposer de 5 à 10 minutes. La sauce épaissira légèrement. Goûte. Sale et poivre si nécessaire.

Donne : 2 abaisses de 23 à 25 cm (9 à 10 po). (1 gros pâté dans l’assiette Arthur Quentin)

Ingrédients :

Préparation :

Technique à la main

  1. Dans un grand bol, mélanger la farine et le sel.
  2. Incorporer le beurre dans la farine à l’aide d’un coupe-pâte ou de deux couteaux afin d’obtenir une texture granuleuse où l’on distingue de petits morceaux de beurre de la grosseur de petits pois.
  3. Ajouter l’eau graduellement en soulevant et en tournant le mélange à l’aide d’une spatule pour éviter qu’une partie ne devienne plus mouillée qu’une autre. Ajouter de l’eau au besoin, une cuillérée à la fois, juste assez pour que le mélange se tienne lorsqu’on le presse entre les doigts.
  4. Former deux disques.
  5. Envelopper de pellicule de plastique et réfrigérer la pâte au moins 30 minutes.
  6. Abaisser la pâte sur un plan de travail fariné ou entre deux feuilles de papier parchemin jusqu’à une épaisseur de 3 à 4 mm (1/8 po). Utiliser la pâte pour faire une tarte à deux croûtes ou pour foncer 2 plats à tarte de 23 à 25 cm (9 à 10 po).

Source: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/mario-batali/gnocchi-alla-ciociaria-ciociaria-style-gnocchi-recipe/index.html

Notes: Sauce pour accompagner les gnocchis aux patates.

Je ne rajoute pas de sel étant donné que la saucisse et le parmesan sont déjà salés.

Si j’utilise les gnocchis cuits à l”avance, je les ajoute à la sauce 10 minutes avant la fin de la cuisson pour les réchauffer dans la sauce.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 ounces pancetta, diced (ou 4 tranches de bacon)
  • 2 ounces dried porcini mushrooms, soaked until tender (ou 1/2 barquette de champignons blancs)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch Italian parsley, finely chopped to yield 1/4 cup
  • 4 (5) sweet Italian sausage links, removed from casing
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 (16-ounce) can San Marzano tomatoes (1 pot de 500 ml de tomates en conserve)
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Freshly grated pecorino romano (ou parmesan)

Directions

  1. In a 12 to 14-inch skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat until almost smoking. Add the pancetta (bacon), porcini (champignons), garlic, onion, celery, carrot, parsley and the sausage meat and cook over high heat until sausage and vegetables are browned.
  2. Add the red wine, let it evaporate, then add the tomatoes (écrasées) and the pepper flakes.
  3. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and lower heat to a simmer. Let cook for 45 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, bring 6 quarts of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons salt.
  5. Once the sauce is thickened to the proper consistency, remove the gnocchi from their container and cook in the boiling water until they float aggressively (4 minutes).
  6. Drain the gnocchi and add to the simmering sauce. Toss very gently over heat 30 seconds to coat, then divide evenly among 4 warmed pasta bowls. Top with freshly grated pecorino and serve.

Gnocchi aux patates

Source: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/mario-batali/gnocchi-alla-ciociaria-ciociaria-style-gnocchi-recipe/index.html

Notes: Je fais cuire 4 patates et je fais 2 recettes séparées.  La deuxième recette de gnocchis, je les dépose sur un papier parchemin sur une plaque à biscuits et je les fais congeler non cuits.

Je fais la sauce à la saucisse pour accompagner les gnocchis.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound russet potatoes (2 grosses patates)
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour (1 1/3 tasses semoule de blé dur)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil (huile d’olive)

Directions

  1. Place the whole potatoes in a saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook at a low boil until they are soft, about 45 minutes.
  2. While still warm, peel the potatoes and pass them through a vegetable mill onto a clean pasta board.
  3. Bring about 6 quarts to a boil. Set up an ice bath with 6 cups ice water and 6 cups water nearby.
  4. Make a well in the center of the potatoes and sprinkle all over with the flour (semoule de blé dur).  Break the egg into the center of the well, add the salt, and, using a fork, stir into the flour (semoule de blé dur) and potatoes as if you were making pasta.
  5. Once the egg is mixed in, bring the dough together, kneading gently until a ball is formed. Knead gently another 4 minutes, until ball is dry to the touch.
  6. Divide the dough into 2 large balls. Roll each ball into 3/4 inch-diameter ropes and cut the ropes into 1-inch-long pieces. Flick the pieces off of a fork or along the concave side of a cheese grater to score the sides.
  7. Drop the dough pieces into the boiling water and cook until they float to the surface, about 1 minute (4 minutes).
  8. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the gnocchi to the ice bath.
  9. Meanwhile, continue with the remaining dough, forming ropes, cutting 1-inch pieces, and flicking them off a fork. Continue until all the gnocchi have been cooked and allow them to sit several minutes in the ice bath.
  10. Drain the gnocchi and transfer to a mixing bowl. Toss with the canola oil (huile d’olive) and store covered in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours or until ready to serve.
