Delicious handmade pasta with an aroma of Greece! “Goglies” Pasta or Jolies as they are called is a traditional dish from the region of southern Evia. They are easy to make with ingredients that you always have at home and they are very tasty!
Ingredients for pasta for 6 servings:
500gr All purpose flour
1 jar Greek Salad Sauce Simply Greek for Wise Greece
200ml fresh cold milk (or as much as it is needed)
100ml Agora extra virgin olive oil
A bit of salt
1/2 tablespoon buttermilk
Pour the flour and the salt in a large bowl. Add the egg and the oil, begin to knead the flour and slowly add the cold milk. Knead in your hands until you have a homogeneous dough.
Wrap the dough with a cling film and let it rest in the refrigerator for one hour before you use it. Then, mold the dough into long strips of one meter in a well-floured surface. Cut the strips into small pieces of 2 cm and push each piece in half with your finger to form a cavity in the middle, which will help the pasta to boil more easily.
Tip: If you want to make the pasta a bit lighter, you can omit the egg.
Put water in a large pot, add a little salt and a little oil and cook the “goglies” for 25-30 minutes.
Then drain them with a slotted spoon to a large bowl and add the melted butter. While it is hot, add Greek Salad sauce by Wise Greece, which you dilute slightly with 2 tablespoons water from the pasta, sprinkle 150 gr of crumbled feta cheese on top and a little mint. Stir and serve.
