So what do you do with fresh pasta once you've made it and congratulated yourself
over and over that you did? This is what I did with mine:**
Fresh Coriander Pasta Ribbons with Spicy Peanut Sauce
1 tsp oil250g firm tofu, cut into bite-size blocks1/2 red bellpepper, cut into strips1/2 green bellpepper, cut into stripshandful of beansprouts1/2 - 1 tsp chilli powder1 tsp soy saucefresh pasta ribbons (make half of recipe and use vietnamese coriander in the dough)2 or 3 kaffir lime leavesvietnamese coriander, to garnish
1. Fry tofu in oil over medium to high heat until lightly browned on all sides. Add bellpeppers, beansprouts and garlic, fry briefly.2. Add chilli powder and soy sauce to the satay sauce, then add to the vegetables. Cook for a few minutes until sauce thickens slightly. Veggies should still be crisp.3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a big pot of boiling water with kaffir lime leaves added to the pot. It should take about 6 minutes for the pasta to reach al dente stage.4. Drain pasta, then toss immediately with the tofu and vegetable mix. Garnish with coriander and serve immediately.
