Red Dragon Fruit & Green Tea Pasta With Red Wine Sauce

I just bought my pasta maker a couple weeks ago. Can't wait to make some pasta with my new toy! This round, I have double up the green tea powder and the pasta looks darker and smell nice & strong. Other than that I've also trying it out with some dragon fruit puree. It turns out beautifully RED. I love the colour.

Ingredients for Red Dragon Fruit Pasta :

300gm all purpose flour
2 eggs
1/3 cup red dragon fruit puree
a pinch of salt
* Note : combine eggs and fruit puree to make up 2/3 cup and extra flour for dusting.

Method : Refer here. Then add in a little olive oil to the cooked pasta and mix well. To prevent from sticking together.

Notice the colour differences before and after cooked? This is the nature of colours. Unlike those artificial colours! I think beetroot should works well too but can't find any for this little project.

Ingredients for Red Wine Sauce :
100gm minced chicken meat (marinade with salt & pepper)
1-1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup tomato puree
2 large tomato, diced
1 large onion, chopped
1 tspn mixed herbs
1 tspn crashed black pepper
salt to taste

Method :
(1) preheat frying pan with enough cooking oil.
(2) stir in chicken minced, onion & mixed herb and sautee untill fragrant.
(3) add in diced tomatoes and simmer untill soft.
(4) stir in tomato puree, crashed black pepper and red wine, simmer untill the sauce is thickened.
(5) add in salt to taste, off the heat & serve hot with pasta.
(6) ganache with parmesan cheese.

Homemade pasta isn't that hard at all. All you need to do is just put your hands on and roll it. Enjoy and you'll love your homemade food even more. Have fun!

I'm sending this to Denise @ Quickies Noodle Challenge.

Kristy - this sings to my ever-lovin'-pasta heart. This would be gorgeous on Christmas Eve.

ICook4Fun said...

You are so hardworking. Making pasta from scratch. Me, the pasta maker is collecting dust for year. Love the vibrant colors and I am sure it tasted great too.

Biren @ Roti n Rice said...

Wow...great looking pasta! Makes a really nice Christmas pasta with the red and green combination :)

Anncoo said...

Kristy, very creative! 3 colors on plate, looks so festive ;))

Kumi said...

Looks really delicious and what a perfect pasta you made! We can't get dragon fruit easily here, but We're going to have to try the green tea powder pasta! What a great idea!

Lyndsey said...

Kristy this is so creative. I like the colors of the pasta both before and after. Does the dragonfruit pasta taste sweet? It is a nice dish for Christmas with the red and green! I can find dragon fruit here but it's a little pricey. I have some green tea powder and would love to try the green tea pasta. So you like it better a little stronger?

Don't have a pasta machine yet, I just picked up a waffle maker during my black Friday shopping! :D

Indie.Tea said...

What gorgeous and unique pasta - almost too pretty to eat.

Elin said...

Kristy...I though I am the only one daring enough to play with ingredients and put them together but you are fantastic enough to put red dragon fruit and green tea pasta with red wine....FANTASTIC flavor ! Good one anyway :)

Have a great day and how do you clean up the pasta maker ?

Cheers,
Elin

Morning Kristy! We had our first snowfall of the year! Thinking of you and sending you a glimpse of winter.... It is so sparkly and lovely!

Your dragonfruit pasta is sensational. I am psyched about your pasta maker... that is soo cool. I have never made pasta. And once again you shine in the kitchen!
