To make the fettuccine
- Attach flat beater to the KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Add flour and salt to mixer bowl and turn to speed 2 to combine. Turn off the mixer and make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Add eggs and olive oil to well, turn to speed 2 and mix for 2 to 3 minutes adding water 1 tbsp at a time until dough holds together.
- Remove the flat beater and attach the dough hook. Turn to Stir (speed 1) speed and knead for 2 to 3 minutes. Gather dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and let rest for at least 1 hour.
- Attach the Pasta Roller Attachment to the Stand Mixer with adjustment knob set to 1.
- Meanwhile, divide dough into quarters and flatten a piece, keeping remaining dough wrapped.
- Turn mixer to speed 2 and feed flattened dough through rollers to knead. Fold dough in half and roll again, repeat until dough is smooth and pliable and covers the width of the rollers.
- Change the roller thickness setting to 2 and feed the dough sheet through rollers to flatten, do not fold dough for this step. Repeat for roller thickness setting 3 through 6. Lightly dust pasta sheet with flour and set aside. Repeat the process with remaining dough.
- Remove Roller attachment and attach the Fettuccine Cutter to the mixer. Turn to speed 2 and cut pasta sheets into noodles. Twirl into nests on parchment paper and sprinkle with a little semolina until ready to use.
To make the sauce
- Heat olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. When oil is hot, add garlic and saute for 2 to 3 minutes longer to heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and cook for about 2 minutes until al dente. Use tongs to transfer pasta to skillet and continue to cook for 1 minute, letting some of the pasta cooking liquid drizzle in.
- Transfer pasta to serving platter, sprinkle with basil and parsley and dollops of burrata. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and lightly drizzle with balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.
