  1. Make a well with the flour. In the center, add the wet ingredients and mix with a fork. 
  2. With your fingers, slowing incorporate the wet and dry without breaking the well.  
  3. Once the dough comes together, knead 200 times. Wrap with plastic wrap and let rest of 30 minutes. 
  4. Reserve.

  1. In a food processor, blend the beets to a purée. Add the goat cheese, season and blend until fully incorporated. 
  2. Place the filling into a pastry bag with a round tip. Reserve. 
  3. Using a pasta roller or rolling pin Roll sheets of pasta 1 millimeter thick. About 2 inches wide.
  4. Pipe the filling and fold the inter edge over to the outer edge. With your fingers, pinch the dough into agnolotti portions   Cut with a pasta wheel.  Store on a sheet pan dusted with semolina. 
  5. Boil 2 gallons of water with 1/4 cup of salt. Blanch the agnolotti, in a pan, but some pasta water and reduce by half, add 4 table spoons of butter and swirl.  Once the butter is incorporated, add the agnolotti and finish in the sauce.  Place in a bowl with fresh dill fronds and garnish with smoked trout roe. 

While I know you’ll have as much fun as I did making this recipe at home, the experience at Saint Stephen restaurant in Nashville’s Germantown is not to be missed.
