Oh wow, this was so bad! Sooo bad, so bad. It pains me to remember it, how it smelled, how it looked, yucko!
I think the problem was my dislike of liver, not the recipe, but that didn't help. The kids took one look at it and told me they couldn't take a bite.
The pasta went well, it was classic flour, 3 egg yolks, olive oil, and 1/4 cup pumpkin. It alll came together nicely with the Kitchen Aid mixer and pasta attachments (love my Christmas gift!) It cooked well, in three minutes.
The sauce was the problem. I put the raw liver in the food processor and ground it finely. I soaked raisins for 10 minutes in hot water. After melting butter, I sauteed a shallot, then the liver for a couple of minutes. I added bourban and cooked a little longer. Finally, I added the raisins, sage, a little reserved pasta water, and the pasta. The texture, smell and everythingn else was bad. I couldn't even give it to Harry the dog because of the bourbon and the raisins. Runs from this recipe!
