In case you missed Chef Devon and Chef Miles cooking demo at Green City Market last weekend we’re sharing the recipe once more- just for you!  In front a great crowd at the Saturday market, Devon and Miles prepared a delicious pea agnolotti with spring onion, asparagus, goat cheese broth and mint.  Perfect for Spring!

Pasta Dough

 

5C AP Flour

5C Semolina

16 Eggs

3T Salt

 

Mix dry ingredients together with a whisk, and create a well in the center.  Pour the Scrambled Eggs into the center and slowly incorporate into the flour.  A fork works well here.  Once combined, knead the dough for 10 minutes.  You can’t overmix this dough.  Wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for 30minutes.  Roll out the dough using a pasta machine. 

 

Pea Filling

 

16oz Fresh Blanched Peas, Smashed

8oz Fresh Ricotta

4oz Parmesan-Reggiano

Kosher Salt and Pepper

 

Mix to combine

 

Spring Onions, and Asparagus

 

Lightly coat in olive oil, salt and pepper.  Grill until charred and cooked through.  Rough Chop, and reserve

 

Goat Cheese Broth

 

8oz Spring Onion, Whites Only

4oz Fennel Bulb

2 Garlic Cloves

8oz Chicken Stock

2 Sprigs Thyme

12oz Chevre Goat Cheese

 

Sautee chopped onion, fennel, and garlic until translucent.  Add chicken stock and thyme and reduce by half.  Remove thyme.  Add the goat cheese.  Blend in a high speed blender until smooth.  Pass through a fine mesh sieve.

 

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until done.  Approx. 5minutes.  Sautee with a little whole butter, and the vegetables.  Serve on top of goat cheese broth, with fine herbs, and mint.

Paramount Serves: Earth Day

If you couldn’t tell by our onsite greenhouse and passion for fresh ingredients, we are pretty serious about the Earth here at The Paramount Group. So serious in fact, that we kicked off Earth Day a week early this past weekend. In addition to being passionate about our environment, we’re also very focused on giving back to our community though our Paramount Serves initiative, and we saw Earth Day as the perfect opportunity to combine the two.
