Eggplant Lasagna

Presented by Chef Tim Groody
Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse

Serves Four

 

Pasta

1 egg

1 egg yolk

1 cup flour

1 T olive oil

Water

In a food processor add all the ingredients except the water.  Process until it forms a ball.  If too dry add water in very small increments until a dough ball forms.  Place on a work surface, cover and let rest for 15 minutes.  If you have a  pasta roller follow the manufactures directions.  Finish 1 or 2 numbers before the last (thinnest setting).  If using a rolling pin roll small pieces very thin.  You may have to let dough rest periodically.  When you have thin sheets cut 3" x 3" squares.  You will need 8 squares.  Cook them in salted water for 1 ½ minutes.  Cool and keep separate and oiled.  Any leftover dough can be rolled then frozen.
