Sugo alla papalina (?? Papal Sauce)
« on: September 10, 2008, 02:18:59 am »
Name of Recipe: SUGO ALLA PAPALINA (Papal Sauce ?)

Number of People: 4-6

Ingredients:

80 gr. parmesan
1 small onion, cut in quarters
80 gr. butter
200 gr. peas fresh (or frozen)
1 MC (100 ml) water
200 gr. of ham (prosciutto crudo) cut in strips
2 whole eggs
salt and pepper q.b.

400g pasta - fettucine

Preparation:

Place parmesan in TM bowl and grate for 15 seconds on speed 8.  Remove and set aside.
Place onion in TM bowl and chop for 10 seconds on speed 7.  Add butter and sauté the onion for 3 minutes at 100°C speed 2. Place the butterfly over the blades, add peas, a little salt, an MC of water and let cook for 10 minutes at 100°C on reverse and speed soft. Now add ham and mix for 2 minutes at 100°C on reverse and speed 1 to develop flavour.

Pour the mixture into a bowl, add the pasta cooked al dente & drained, and mix well. Insert immediately into the TM bowl the eggs with 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese and mix for 15 seconds at speed 5.

While cooking the sauce prepare your pasta as per packet instructions.  If you wish to cook in the TMX, then make sauce first and keep warm while preparing the pasta.

Pour egg and cheese mix (sauce) over pasta mixed with the ham sacue and sprinkle with the remaining parmesan and a dash of ground pepper. Stir well and serve immediately.

Suggestion: For this dish of ancient tradition egg fettuccine are recommended as the pasta. If you do not have fresh peas, you can use those frozen, partially thaw them first.

Origin:

Translated and converted from the Italian book "Sua Maestà La Pasta" for TM 21 for TM 31 - but not cooked so watch timing/speeds.

I'm thinking of being brave tonight and trying this one as I have some really yummy butchers ham that needs using.  I've just read through the recipe and am a little confused about what is happening with the eggs after they have been whisked.  Any ideas?  :)

Maybe he means for you to beat the eggs and cheese and just add that to the pasta & ham sauce which is sitting in the thermoserver.  The heat would then cook the egg mixture. That's my take on it anyway.  Thermomixer, where are you  ??? ??? ??? ???

JD is correct - sorry, have fixed my poor translation.  The cooked pasta and ham/onion sauce are mixed and then the eggs/cheese poured over and mixed and then more paremesan sprinkled over top

Thanks Thermomixer - I was hoping you would pop online today!  I think it is a very good translation actually.  I wouldn't be able to manage it even with the google tool.  I will give cook this tonight and post a review.  :)

Well this little recipe was a nice surprise.  A hidden treasure!!! I made this for dinner tonight and it was really delicious.  It has gone straight to the "remake" folder and was given 4.5/5 by DH.

The sauce was perfect in consistency - a lot like an egg-based carbonara.  The flavour was quite mild, but with a generous amount of cracked pepper and grated Parmesan it was definitely flavoursome enough.  The peas weren't too overpowering and gave it a fresh taste which we loved. I sometimes find carbonara a little sickly, but this was just nice.  I think it is one of those simple dishes that relies on really lovely ingredients (definitely no processed ham or flavourless peas for this one).  This would be a perfect dinner party dish when made with fresh peas, baked ham and fresh homemade pasta.  Divine!

Here are my recipe tweaks:
50g Parmesan instead of 80g.
50g butter instead of 80g (but will try 40g next time).
330g pasta instead of 400g (330g only just fitted in thermoserve with sauce).
I chopped the onion for 2 seconds at speed 5 (scraping the bowl down) and cooked it on reverse speed 2 so that it didn't turn to mush.
I cooked the pasta on the stovetop ( :o) while the sauce was cooking.
I rinsed the TMX bowl in cold water to cool it down before putting the eggs and cheese in to whisk.  I wasn't sure if I needed to but was worried that my eggs would cook while whisking as the empty bowl was at 70o.
I tipped the onion/ham/pea sauce into the thermoserve, then stirred in the egg/cheese sauce and then stirred through the pasta.

Thanks for translating this little beauty Thermomixer!  :)

Thanks for testing this one Chelsea - like your tweaks. Did you chop the onion for that long on such a high speed, it would have been mush or is that what it is supposed to be like in this particular sauce Thermomixer?

Too quick JD!  I was laying in bed last night thinking that I forgot to write about the onion tweak and that I must do it first thing this morning.  I didn't like the thought of onion mush so I did tweak that.  Will fix it now.  :)

Thnaks for trying it and reviewing it.  Guess it should be good if it was designed for a pope !!

JD - think the onions must have been meant to be minced finely.  They are pretty good with times etc in the Italian books

Trying this now, with mushrooms instead of ham & peas, and shallots instead of onion, and olive oil instead of butter, and a few other little changes!  Looks good, and so easy!!

Very nice, and quick too!  Used less parmesan, and plenty of pepper and some salt.  Kids loved it too.  Thanks Thermomixer  ;D

This was very quick & really tasty. I didn't have quite enough Prosciutto so added bacon. Thanks for the recipeThermomixer. I am always looking for pasta recipes for my boys who both swim & require high carbohydrate meals. We are currently carb loading DS1 as he is participating in a 19km ocean swim in  a week or so.
