Directions

In a bowl, mix in the semolina and salt. Mix in the eggs, milk, and olive oil until a dough is formed and it pulls away from the side of the bowl. On a floured surface knead until smooth and let sit covered for 1 hour. It should not be sticky. Divide the dough into 4 balls and roll out each ball until paper-thin sheets are formed. Put on a tray that is sprinkled with semolina. Mix together in a bowl the fava bean puree, feta cheese, parsley, mint, pine nuts, salt, and pepper. Set this aside. With dough cutters cut disk about 3 inches in diameter. Place a small spoon of the stuffing in the center. Wet 1 edge of the circle with water on your finger and fold the edge over to make a half moon. Make sure that the edges are sealed tightly. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil and drop the pasta in, when the pasta floats to the top it is ready. Pull from the water and place on a plate. Drizzle with olive oil and grate with fresh kasseri cheese.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the fava beans, garlic and olive oil and puree. Season with salt and pepper. Add water as necessary to thin.
