For the almond parmesan*
  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until you get your desired consistency.
For the sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C and line an oven tray with baking paper. Cut the capsicum into large slices and place them on the tray. Peel and cut the shallots in half and place them on the tray along with the clove of garlic (with the skin on).
  2. Roast the vegetables for around 30 minutes until the skin of the capsicum darkens and blisters. Remove from the oven and cover the tray with tin foil. Return to the oven for 10-15 minutes, this will steam the capsicum so the skins are easy to remove.
  3. Remove the vegetables from the oven and allow them to cool a little. Peel the capsicum and put it into a food processor fitted with an s-blade, add the roasted shallots and squeeze the roasted garlic clove from it’s skin into the food processor.
  4. Add the remaining source ingredients except for the corn starch and blend until a smooth sauce forms.
  5. Pour the sauce into a saucepan over low heat, add the corn starch and heat until the sauce has thickened.
For the pasta
  1. Add the white flour, semolina flour and olive oil to a food processor fitted with an s-blade and process briefly until they’re mixed.
  2. With the food processor running, slowly pour the water in, starting with 1/2 cup and adding more if needed. Process until the dough comes together in a rough ball.
  3. Dust a kneading surface with semolina flour and knead it until a smooth ball forms (add more flour if it’s too sticky).
  4. Roll out your pasta and cut it to fettuccine size according to the instructions for your pasta maker.
  5. Bring a large pot of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 3 minutes.
  6. Drain the pasta, mix through the sauce and sprinkle over the almond parmesan.
