🍴 RECIPE 🍴
1 large egg
4 tbsp of water
2 tbsp of Zen Tea Leaf® Matcha Green Tea Powder
1 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
2 small red chili
3/4 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
2 small dashes of fish sauce 50 grams of grated cheese
1 clove garlic, grated
Whisk egg and 4 tbsp of water together until even, then whisk in the matcha powder. Let sit for 5 min. Add the matcha-mixture into the flour in a large bowl, then start kneading the mixture together with your hand until it comes into a very dry and shaggy dough. Transfer onto a surface and continue to knead for 6~8 min. Wrap the dough in plastic-wrap and let rest for at least 1 hour.
Divide the dough in half & roll the dough out into a rectangle, fold it, then roll it out again. Do this a few times until the dough appears relatively smooth. Now, you can either pass the dough through a spaghetti cutter, or roll it into a thin sheet (2 mm) and fold it and cut it with a knife. Toss with some flour so the noodles don't stick together.
MAKE CACIO E PEPE:
Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a full boil. Meanwhile, heat extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, then add diced chili and freshly ground black pepper & cook until fragrant.
Cook the matcha spaghetti in the boiling water for just a min, then transfer into the skillet along with about 2 tbsp of the pasta cooking-water. Continue on medium-high heat, add 2 small splashes of fish sauce & grated cheese, toss until the cheese has fully melted & coats the noodles as a light sauce. If you are using garlic, add the grated garlic at this point & toss together.
