Fresh pasta is a natural fit for garden-fresh vegetables, like baby kale, vine tomatoes and fresh herbs.
First, gather and prepare your mise en place and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
If using fresh noodles, make the Eggless Pasta Dough dough, for the red pepper color and flavor be sure to add an optional 2-3 tbsp of red pepper powder. Roll out and slice to your desired thickness. You will need to coordinate the timing of the sauce preparation with the cooking of the pappardelle as the pasta takes just 3 minutes to cook.
To prepare the dish, in a fry pan on medium–high heat, add the olive oil and onions and sauté for 2 minutes. Lower the heat slightly and add garlic and chile flakes. Continue to sauté on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Next, add the white wine and deglaze the pan. Cook for 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat and keep warm until it is time to add the freshly cooked pasta.
Into the pot of boiling water, add the fresh papparelle. Allow to cook for 3 minutes, or until all noodles are floating to the top, then drain.
Place the fry pan back on medium heat. Add the drained pasta, vegetable stock, the optional capers, tomatoes, baby kale and lemon juice. Add the optional vegan butter and toss well. Cook for a few minutes, tossing occasionally, and season with salt, pepper and fresh basil.
Toss again, remove from heat and serve the dish.
