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.

Ingredients:
  • 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

Steps:
  • 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.

  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: http://glutenfreegirl.com/gluten-free-fresh-pasta/ Good luck and let me know how it turns out!
