Gluten-Free Lemon-Poppy Seed Pasta with Tomato, Corn and Basil

gluten-free homemade pasta

After bread, my family has missed pasta the most since being diagnosed gluten intolerant. Considering all of the handmade pasta I’ve had in my lifetime, I never could have imagined eating gluten-free pasta that tastes better than my Italian grandmother’s—until now.

“Growing up in an Italian family with pasta being the center of every dinner is a hard habit to break.”

After cutting the rolled-out dough, I pile up the fresh pasta and freeze it to avoid clumping.

What I love about homemade pasta is the versatility. You can make deliciously simple egg pasta or you can mix in chopped herbs or spinach, citrus zest, spices, purees (like pumpkin, sweet potato, potato)—really anything you can dream up. But, really, what I love most, is making something from scratch with my kids. I like them to know that they can make whatever they want with the most basic of ingredients.

“I want my kids to know that they don’t have to go to the supermarket to put together a good plate of pasta.”

Chiara rolls out the gluten-free pasta dough by hand before cranking it through the pasta machine.

It’s the relationship between food and family. It’s holding onto the recipes and techniques passed down from generation to generation. It’s having the smells fill my kitchen that once filled my mom’s kitchen and my grandmother’s kitchen before hers.

My friends and I are playing with ratios again as part of the Gluten-Free Ratio Rally. What’s the Gluten-Free Ratio Rally? We’re a group of food bloggers and cookbook authors committed to baking with ratios. This month’s assignment: pasta. Thanks Jenn from Jenn Cuisine, for being our host! Please check Jenn’s site (or below) for the complete list of bloggers with links to their pasta recipes.

Want this dish dairy-free? Just leave out the feta cheese. Believe me, this pasta is so rich and creamy, you won’t miss it!

GLUTEN-FREE-RATIO-RALLY1

 

Me and my ratio: After playing around in the kitchen with various ratios, this one made me (and my family) the happiest. Feel free to have fun with the ratios. It will depend ever so slightly on the ratio of grains and starches in your gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. Also, just in case, I’ve included cup and spoon measurements if that’s what you’re more comfortable with.

3 PARTS FLOUR: (350 g) 2½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour blend
2 PARTS EGGS: (225 g) 4 large eggs

There’s no waiting to cook the pasta for Chiara, who started eating the dough right away.

Using tongs, I drain the pasta right into the sauce, bringing with it some of the starchy pasta cooking water, which thickens the sauce.

Gluten-Free Lemon-Poppy Seed Pasta with Tomato, Corn and Basil

Ingredients

For the pasta:

2½ cups Silvana's Kitchen Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour

½ teaspoon salt

4 large eggs, at room temperature

1½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons water

Zest of 2 lemons

1 teaspoon poppy seeds

For the sauce:

6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 pints cherry tomatoes

¼ cup pine nuts (optional)

2 ears corn, shucked and kernels cut off

Zest of 1 lemon

½ cup fresh basil, torn

Greek feta, thinly sliced (optional)

Instructions

  1. For the pasta: In a standing mixer, blend together the flour blend and salt. Mix in the eggs, 1 at a time, until the dough starts to come together. Mix in the olive oil and water; mix until dough just forms a ball. Use the palms of your hands to knead the dough until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Cut the dough into 4 pieces and cover with plastic wrap; let rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Adjust a pasta machine to the first and widest setting. Lightly flour 1 piece of the dough to prevent it from sticking to the rollers and flatten it to about a ½-inch thickness using a rolling pin or your hands. Run the dough through the rollers. Fold the dough in thirds and pass it through the same setting again. Repeat this process 2 more times. Run the pasta through the next 3 narrower settings.
  3. Using the pasta cutter attachment, a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the pasta dough lengthwise into fettuccine. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until ready to use. Repeat the process with the remaining pasta dough.
  4. For the sauce: Set a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot, but not smoking. Add the tomatoes and let soften, about 5 minutes. Add the pine nuts, if using, and corn; cook until the tomatoes just burst. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  5. Meanwhile, add the pasta to the boiling water and let cook until the pasta rises to the surface, about 3 minutes. Using tongs, drain the pasta with some cooking water and add to the sauce in the saucepan. Add the lemon zest and basil; toss. Top with feta, if using.

    Silvana,
    I remember those days with the kids in the kitchen and look forward to when mine come back again. You are creating some important memories for them.
    love your tip about bringing the pasta into the sauce with some of the cooking water–and the cast iron skillet, a great kitchen workhorse.

  2. Janis on July 6, 2011 at 10:28 am

    Don’t think I’ll try pasta from scratch, but the sauce sounds great. I am definitely going to try it…soon! I think I have all the ingredients at home right now!

  3. Caneel on July 6, 2011 at 11:25 am

    This pasta is beautiful! I love the lemon and poppy seed idea with that combination of toppings. Oh. Yum!

  4. Ricki on July 6, 2011 at 11:36 am

    This is so awesome, Silvana! I’ve never made homemade pasta, gf or not–but now I want to try. And I love the idea of lemon/poppy pasta!

  5. charissa (zest bakery) on July 6, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    The title of your pasta dish really grabbed me, and the photos did it justice. One of the first things I ever made successfully was a lemon poppy seed loaf. I really do love all things with that flavor combination including this recipe. I think it is going to the top of my list to try. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Jenn on July 6, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    This pasta looks gorgeous!!! and I love the bright fresh flavors that you incorporated and all of the step by step photos 🙂

  7. Erin Swing on July 6, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Your creativity in the kitchen is absolutely amazing! This dish sounds so light and fresh for the summer. Your daughter is too cute! Baci to her, & to you!

  8. Jean Layton on July 7, 2011 at 1:31 am

    When I used to make gluten full pasta, a scoop of the starchy water was a common addition, but I hadn’t thought of just grabbing the pasta and dropping it in, Brilliant!
    Anything that simplifies life is a godsend.
    Thanks for mentioning adding the herbs while making the pasta, I’ve got to do that.

  9. Tara on July 7, 2011 at 5:49 pm

    I love how bright and summery your recipe is. And the idea of adding lemon zest to the pasta dough is brilliant! But mostly, I love that you included your daughter in the making of it, and know how important these lessons and memories are for our children!

  10. Nina on July 8, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    This looks delicious, but I’m just a bit confused by the photo that says the pasta dough is frozen?? I can’t see anything in the recipe about freezing…

  11. Silvana on July 8, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Hi Nina, you’re right, I’ll fix that in the recipe now. Because it was humid and hot in my kitchen, as I cut each pasta sheet into fettuccine, I placed the loose pasta strands on a parchment-lined baking sheet and put it in the freezer so the pasta wouldn’t stick together!

  12. Angie Halten on July 10, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    Homemade pasta is a lot of work, but its SO worth it. Your sauce is so simple, yet incredibly flavourful!

    We are a group of volunjteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community.

    Your website offered us with valuable info tto work on.
    You have performed a formidable job and our whole community might be thankful
    to you.

  18. Has your garage door begun to act up and you are worried that a
    mere garage door repair job is not going to be enough?
    Well, the good news is, you do not have to completely replace your garage door
    openers. All you have to do is to perform a few garage door repairs
    that are going to take care of your problem.

    You can perform a few repairs without the help of any professional.
    However, some repairs are more complicated and should not be attempted
    by the nonprofessional. If you do so, you might end
    up injuring yourself. Plus, you might also cause more damage to the garage
    gate than repair!

    Why do you need the repair?

    First, you should note what problems you are facing with your garage gate.
    Is the door simply not responding? Or is it closing and opening partially?
    Do you find that the garage opener is running, but not opening?

    You will find that the repair work for each of these
    cases is different.

    What work does garage gate repair involve?

    Light repair works usually involve cleaning, lubricating and tightening the tracks, springs and
    the loose parts of the system. You should first check if the power supply to the opener is intact.
    Sometimes, if the power is not reaching the opener for some reason, your garage
    door will be stuck, and you will be left wondering
    what went wrong!

    What kind of garage opener do you have?

    When you are planning to perform some garage door repair,
    you should first find out what kind of opener you
    are using. If it is a standard extension garage gate, you can easily carry out the
    repair works, once you are able to find out what is going wrong with the
    machine.

    However, if your garage door is making use of a torsion spring, you will have to call in a
    professional to help you with the repair works.
    The torsion spring door is under tremendous pressure, and thus, one wrong move may even turn out to be fatal
    for you.

    Other garage door repair works

    If you are looking for a temporary fix for your garage gate, you can disconnect the opener from the door, by pulling
    on the red string that you can see on the side of the door.

    This way you can operate the door manually.
    However, be careful, because if the problem lies in the spring of the door, it might fall suddenly
    on you.

    Check all the loose hardware to make sure that nothing is out of place.
    Also check the springs and see if they are hooked on to the right
    place. If, while carrying out the garage door repair you face any difficulty due to the
    tension in the springs, try to adjust them by hooking them to the next notch.
    This will make it easier for you to work.

    Finally, never forget that the best way to keep your garage door
    in good condition is by regularly carrying out maintenance work on your door.
    This will ensure that you do not have to spend buckets on repair and
    replacement works.

    LinkedIn has a great feature that connects with your existing email accounts and allows you to invite anyone you have interacted with to your network.

    This means that you might reach people you interacted with once or twice, or people that you haven_t spoken with in a while.

    This is a powerful tool, but are you using it effectively in your marketing?

    LinkedIn as a Data Collector
    Look at all the ways you can collect data from people. The easiest metric to track
    for most is their email addresses, so ask people and promote their use.
    Create mailers or offer contests via email registration. Remember, each email you collect is another potential LinkedIn profile waiting to be connected to.
    Also, you might convince someone to join LinkedIn when they
    receive an invite from you, which means more customers to interact with.

    Easy Ways to Connect on LinkedIn
    So, what are some easy ways to connect with users and get them to want
    to network with you? Many companies have started suing LinkedIn as a corporate blog to promote brand
    awareness. These blogs might not even have
    anything to do with the products being sold, but they might tie in with corporate culture or offer up some helpful knowledge or technique.
    This is called generating substance, and if you want people
    to see a value in your postings, you need to provide that substance, otherwise
    they simply won_t care.
    The nice thing about this is you don_t have to be a multi-faceted business guru to provide content.
    Maybe you promote an interesting link of the day,
    or maybe you repost a news story about something company-related (please give credit if you do this.).
    It could even be a humorous blurb or story, or even a
    business-appropriate joke to keep your network_s attention. The only constant is
    that the postings stay constant. If you start it, then maintain it to help build that
    brand awareness. Remember, people won_t actively look for you if they don_t know you exist.

    One great way that some companies have started building a loyalty network is through promoting their
    employees. Some companies will offer a spotlight on their employees,
    showing off the projects they have done or discussing their high points.
    This not only helps to ensure your employees feel valued, but it also helps to paint your company as more human, which is
    something you want when trying to get people to connect with you.

    Plumbing Repairs That Require a Professional Plumbing Service
    Plumbing repair work can encompass many
    things, such as mending hot water heaters, or fitting new faucets in bathrooms.

    On the internet, there is information about how to
    do many kinds of plumbing jobs. Understandably, most
    people want to avoid hiring a plumber to carry out maintenance or repair work, which
    they could perform themselves. Nonetheless, considerable precision and expertise is needed to implement the
    majority of plumbing tasks.

    Even a basic error, like failing to seal a pipe tightly enough, could cause leaks that result in expensive water damage
    and high water bills. Leaks could cause mold to develop in your house as well.

    You should hire plumbing services, whenever severe problems with your plumbing system arise.
    If you don’t do this, you might end up making the problem even worse.

    The hot Water Stops Working

    It can be difficult to identify the cause of this problem, unless you have a
    leaking water tank. Leaks can appear anywhere in your system, due to a range
    of factors. Issues with gas heaters can involve thermocouple ignition systems and burners.
    Issues with electrical heaters can involve heating elements,
    bad overload switches, malfunctioning thermostats,
    and blown fuses or circuit breakers.

    The Water Pressure in Your Home is too low

    There are several things that can cause this problem.
    Examples include badly designed supply lines, low
    water pressures from wells or city supplies, and water line blockages (such as debris or rust).
    A reputable plumber will diagnose the cause of the problem, and tackle it effectively.

    The Sewer Line Backs up

    In all likelihood, if you encounter a sewer line stoppage, the
    line will have a plug in it that leads out to the primary sewer.
    Frequently, this is caused by tree roots. Large sewer rodding
    machines can be rented, however they might harm the sewer lines or drain.
    Contact a drain cleaning company or plumber.
    If they experience problems, they will do the repair work.

    Installing a new Water Heater

    Ideally, you should avoid trying to install a new heater on your own. A good plumber will transport the
    new heater to your storage area, connect it and ensure that
    it functions correctly. He or she can get rid of your old heater too.

    Severe Damage to Water Lines

    It is a time consuming process to fix damage to
    water lines. Normally, this occurs due to freezing.

    Hire a plumber, so that you don’t have to interrupt your
    regular schedule.

    Pipe Freezing

    If you have frozen pipes, they may have cracks in them already — in which case you need
    a plumber. Even if your pipes don’t have cracks in them, hiring a plumber still might be
    sensible. Rather than thawing frozen pipes, some plumbers
    just replace certain sections of them.

    Any kind of plumbing problem can represent a
    threat to property or health. Therefore, these problems need to be addressed straightaway.
    Locate some good plumbing repairs services, and contact them if you encounter any of the above situations.

    There are many types of tiles available nowadays. The method of
    tile cleaning will depend more on the tile type.
    However there are couple of things to be followed
    to add the sheen and glow of the tiles.

    Do the regular floor cleaning
    Clean the spills as soon as they occur

    It is very crucial to clean dirt and water too as soon as they are split to
    prevent the stains. Place a doormat which helps in reduction of mud or dirt entering through footsteps.

    There are basically following tile floors
    where in one will use the tile and grout cleaning process, types of tiles are as follow –

    Ceramic
    Porcelain
    Stone

    Porcelain Tile cleaning

    Porcelain tiles maintenance is not difficult
    if the surface is cleaned regularly. The surface can be vacuum cleaned every day
    or just sweep it. The wet mopping is required once in a week.
    Use of mild floor cleaners will do for the mopping.
    One can make it at home by mixing vinegar and water.

    Ceramic Tile Cleaning

    The rule is followed here as well; remove the dirt as soon as possible.
    Vacuum clean the tiles every day or a simple broom can be used.
    Plain water or the special ceramic tile cleaners can be used
    for the wet mopping.

    Stone Tile Cleaning

    One need to be careful while cleaning the tiles made of stones as
    they are natural minerals. Never use harsh floor cleaners.
    Sweep or vacuum clean. After using any floor cleaner use a dry mop to soak any type of liquid residue.

    Grout Cleaning

    Along with the tile cleaning it is very important to regularly clean the grout, i.e.

    the lines between the tiles. Hence tile and grout cleaning goes simultaneously.

    Grout is porous in nature and attracts dirt, grease etc.
    The surface looks shabby if the grout is unclean. It can also
    be a cause of mildew or mould in the damp areas like bathrooms.
    It is best to have a seal (colour or clear) on the grout which will not only protect the
    surface but also acts as an anti-fungal agent.

    Many a times it gets difficult to maintain the floor due to hectic working schedules.
    Hence we come in picture and provide the tile and grout cleaning services to our
    clients at a very affordable price. Moreover the price depends on the type of the tiles, number of tiles and size of the tiles to be cleaned.

    Following steps are followed for the tile and grout cleaning after you contact us-

    Pre inspection of the tiles and floor.
    Shifting of the furniture, if any, from that space.

    Dry Sweeping of the surface
    Application of the suitable cleaning solution.
    Cleaning the surface with a soft pad.
    High pressure cleaning
    Mopping and drying the surface.

    We have our experts who carry special tools to do the tile and
    grout cleaning; the grout sealing is also done if ordered.
