On a flat surface add the All-Purpose Flour (4 1/3 cups) and make a well in the center. Crack an Egg (1) and beat into the flour. Add a little Water (to taste) and start to knead. Add water as needed. The dough should not be too hard or too soft but instead feel like play-doh.
Step 2
After you've kneaded it, cover it with a bowl and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
Step 3
In a pot add the Dried White Beans (to taste) , Water (to taste) , Rock Salt (to taste) and boil to till the beans are cooked.
Step 4
In a another pot add the Carrot (1) , Onion (1) , Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (to taste) and Tomato Passata (to taste) . Add in Fresh Basil Leaves (to taste) , Rock Salt (to taste) and continue to simmer the sauce over medium heat.
Step 5
Once the dough has rested, begin to roll it out with a rolling pin until very thin. Dust with All-Purpose Flour (to taste) to avoid sticking and cut into long strips.
Step 6
Then, stack into groups of 3 strips and cut to make the sagne pasta shape. In a pot of boiling water, add Rock Salt (to taste) and the pasta. Cook for 5 minutes then serve in a bowl.
Step 7
Add 5 large ladles of sauce into the beans and mix. Pour the sauce with beans mixture into the pasta and mix well. Serve and enjoy!
