Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Bacala salt cod; soaked in cold water
For three days; changed daily
¼ cup Extra-virgin olive oil
2 Garlic cloves; thinly sliced
1 large Russet potato; peeled, and
Cut into 1/4" cubes

Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons of salt. Cut soaked salt cod into ½-inch cubes and set aside. In a 12-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and potato cubes and saute until golden brown (about 4 to 5 minutes). Add salt cod, Basic Tomato Sauce and white wine and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 6 minutes. Roll the Red Pasta dough out to thinnest setting on pasta machine. Cut pasta into 1-inch-wide ribbons. Plunge into boiling water and cook until softened, yet al dente. Drain pasta in colander over sink and toss into pan with salt cod mixture. Toss in chives and stir gently until coated and sauce and pasta are melded.
