Pasta again...

You could say I'm obsessed with getting the homemade pasta recipe perfect...

I think I finally did it. Or at least - this recipe was awesome so neener neener. Ready? Think you can handle the awesome pasta action? Ok. Here we go.

  • 1 1/4 cup pasta flour - durham or 00. This really makes all the difference. 
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup potato flour - I had some on hand and i've been trying to figure out what to do with it, so why not throw it in there too!
  • 3 LARGE pinches of salt
  • 1 pinch of ground pepper
  • 3 eggs

  • Dump all your flour together on the table top and make a little crater in the middle
  • Drop the eggs into the middle and start mixing in the flour slowly from the middle of the crater till  you get it thick enough to mix with your hands.
  • Mix the dough up and then let it rest for about 30 min covered with a damp cloth or paper towel. This allows the gluten to form and makes it easier to work with.
  • Cut the dough into 4 small balls and start running them through your pasta maker
  • Pop the finished pasta into a bowling pot of water - the water should have a little salt added to it
  • After the pasta is in the pot - drizzle in a little bit of olive oil. This helps the pasta not stick together
  • Cook that sucker to your taste and you're ready to enjoy!

Let me know how yours turns out.

  4. Thanks for this recipe. I also wanted to try making my own pasta. Do you have a recipe on how to make gluten free pasta?

  5. Micaela, thanks! Making your own pasta really isn't too difficult, it's just a little time consuming but so worth it. I don't have a gluten-free recipe but I did find this for you: Good luck and let me know how it turns out!
