Making fresh pasta is easy. Especially if you have a pasta machine. You could roll it out by hand too.
So I had this idea to make a dark colored pasta. I have made lighter colored pasta
before but this case called for a black or dark brown color. I had no squid ink available, it also sometimes has an inky flavour so I did not want to make a batch of that. True story, when I was in kindergarten, I had to sit next to the kid that ate his crayons so I could rat him out to the teacher when he chewed on a crayon. The glue-eater sat behind me. But anyway, I didn't want to use food coloring and I had some Gravy Master which I thought was a more natural way to darken food, in retrospect, I don't really want to know how they make that stuff.
You will need:
A cup or two of all purpose flour, you can try various varieties depending on taste
A few eggs, use 1 and 1/2 eggs per cup of flour
For the filling:
You can make anything you like, meat or vegetarian or mix
I used ground turkey to keep with the fowl theme. Actually, bats are mammals that fly.
Traditional fillings are pork sausage or beef, cheese, spinach and cheese
Grated parmesan or ricotta cheese
Usual spices to flavor the filling like oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper
