If you have ever wanted to make your own fresh pasta, this easy recipe shows how semolina flour, salt and water are kneaded into a simple dough, then rolled and cut into shapes. Durum semolina flour may be found at specialty grocers.
The nice thing about this recipe is that the dish doesn't taste burnt even though you can get a nice blackened look. The sugar and the thyme caramelize and give it a wonderful flavor. All my friends love it.
