Maya Tagliatelle


I illustrate you this prestigious recipe, prepared by my beautiful husband: it consists of hand-made pasta with cocoa powder, in a delicious mushrooms and nuts sauce! The name derives from the fact that the Mayan god Quetzalcoatl gave this people the cocoa plant, which has been invaluable to their survival .. and for our lunch on Saturday:)

For the pasta
200gr wholewheat flour
200gr flour type 00 (pasta flour)
50gr cocoa powder
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
water and salt as needed
For the sauce:
350g mixed mushrooms
soy cream

In large bowl, mix the two flours with cocoa powder and add salt; mix everything with water, add two tablespoons of oil. When everything is well blended and doesn’t stick to fingers, let it rest for about 15 minutes.
Roll the dough out with a rolling pin and cut it into somewhat thin strips, place them on a tray and separate them.
In a pan, fry the garlic with extra virgin olive oil, add the walnuts, shelled and cut into pieces, pretty big, and mixed mushrooms or the ones you like best, and cook them all.
Cook the tagliatelle in boiling salted water for a few minutes, then drain and combine them with the mushroom sauce and soy cream. Enjoy it :-)!

    I loke everything in this recipe! The pasta must have quite a speciale and distinctive flavour, and it must have been excellent with mushrooms and nuts!

    These are brilliant… very elegant and intriguing. And the sauce is perfect for them, the best I could have imagined

    For us in the old US of A, the “flour 00” can be successfully substitute with all purpose white flour.

    If I may add: I believe that Quetzalcoatl gave the whole entire world a wonderful gift!!
