Nello's Lavender Piedmont Pomodoro Sauce Review & Homemade Whole Wheat Noodle Recipe

Hello, again! I am so happy because I get to share with you yet another EXCELLENT sauce from Nello's! Introducing.... Lavender Piedmont Pomodoro Sauce!
Lavender Piedmont Pomodoro Sauce
One word: Elegant. Features lavender and thyme. A unique sauce for the cook looking for something modern and innovative. Soft, yet rich tomato flavor with an herb and floral profile. Pairs with bread, pasta, cheeses, pork, poultry, game, or fish. Available in 14oz and 25oz.
I decided to make homemade pasta. This was my first time making it. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun! Here is the pasta boiling :)

My Recipe for Whole Wheat Fettuccine:

4 large eggs
2 tbs water
3 1/2 cup whole wheat flour- I used Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp salt


Place eggs, water, whole wheat flour and salt in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater. Turn to Speed 2 and mix for 30 seconds.

Exchange flat beater for dough hook. Turn to Speed 2 and knead for 2 minutes. Remove dough from bowl and hand knead for 2 minutes. Divide dough into eight pieces before processing with Pasta Sheet Roller attachment.

Cook pasta in 6qts of boiling water. Add 2 tsp of salt to water if desired. Cook pasta for 2-5 minutes, fresh, or 7 minutes dry.

Yield: 1 1/4 lbs of dough

Add a heaping amount of Nello's Lavender Piedmont Pomodoro Sauce and Viola! Dinner is served!

This last bite of pasta says it all :) I really love this sauce. Its definitely different from any sauce that I have tasted. Its savory, fresh and delicious. I can really taste the floral. I'd say that this sauce would be good for any dish. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
