Perfect for using up your leftover turkey during those cold winter nights.

To make the pasta:

Place the flour on a table top and make a well in the middle, add the whole eggs and yolks to the well and then drag the flour over the eggs and pull together, knead the dough briskly for one minute, it should be quite stiff and hard to knead. Wrap in cling film and leave to rest in a cool place for one hour before using.

For the ragu:

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the onion, garlic, carrot, celery and sea salt, coat in the oil and turn the heat down, cover with a lid and allow mixture to cook down and soften, for about 10 minutes.

Now cut the pasta dough into two pieces.

For each piece, flatten with a rolling pin to about 5mm/¼ in) thick. Fold over the dough and pass it through a pasta machine at its widest setting, refolding and rolling seven times (not changing the setting) until you have a rectangular shape. It is important to work the dough until it is nice and shiny, as this gives it the “al dente” texture. Repeat with the second piece of dough. Alternatively roll out the dough with a rolling pin to ¼ inch thick on a floured surface, cut into thick 3cm strips to make pappardelle and hang out to dry for ½ hour or till dry to the touch Add the tinned tomatoes and turkey meat to the onion mixture and cook for a further 20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.

Add the stock and simmer for ten minutes, and the sage and season, put aside.

Boil the pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water for a few min’s until al dente (still with a bite) and drain.

To serve toss the pasta through the turkey ragu mix, spoon into pasta bowls, drizzle over some olive oil and grated parmesan.
