Hot Dogs and Pasta

The last time I made this recipe was in 2016. Next time will be sooner. The pasta was made with Parmesan cheese folded in before the last roll on the pasta machine. Why don't I do that more often???

I used hot dogs and pancetta. Why not! No complaints from the other side of the table.

The Pasta recipe
3 cups flour
4 eggs
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp olive oil

Place the flour, eggs, and salt in a food processor. Pulse to combine. With the machine running, gradually add the oil then 1/3 to 1/2 cup water until the mixture forms a dough (the dough should stick together if pinched between your fingers). If necessary, add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time if the dough is too dry.

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Gather the dough into a ball and knead until the dough is smooth 5 to 8 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

When you are rolling out the pasta dough and you get to the second to last setting and sprinkled the pasta with Parmesan cheese and then folded it in thirds and put it back through the pasta machine, putting the setting back 2 places. (You should be at setting 6 and that is when you add the cheese. After the dough is folded over you put the machine back to setting 5 and proceed.). And then continued rolling until you got to the lowest setting. 

Hot Dogs and Pasta
4 hot dogs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
8-ounce broad egg noodles
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 5 minutes; drain.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet. Cook the hot dog pieces in the butter until browned. Add the hot dogs to the drained noodles with 2 tablespoons butter, parsley, and Parmesan cheese; stir until butter is melted and the hot dogs are coated.
