  • Pasta dough

    Place the flour and salt in a bowl, pour in the water, knead into a smooth dough. Cover and leave to rest for approx. 30 mins. In batches, shape the dough into rolls (each 2 cm in diameter), cut into pieces approx. 2 cm long. Using a knife, drag the pieces of dough along the work surface in batches, turn the rough side outwards. Note: Keep the rest of the dough covered at all times to prevent it from drying out.
  • To cook the pasta

Reduce the cooking liquid for approx. 10 mins., stirring occasionally, add the reserved cooking water. Add the red chicory and chicken, season with salt. Add the pasta and heat gently.
