Homemade Pasta!

Ciao Foodies!

I told you, you’d be back for more!

In this post we’re going to kick it up a notch and dive into making homemade pasta. I promise you won’t be disappointed and frankly, you may never be able to eat store bought ‘dry’ pasta again!

Please note: you will require a pasta machine to make this recipe.

Firstly, you’re going to need a few things

  • 1 cup of ’00’ flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1 tsp of salt

Serves 2

Now we’re ready to go!

  1. Pour flour onto your kitchen table or bench
  2. Create a circular well
  3. Place oil and water in the centre of the well
  4. Crack each egg over the centre, throw away egg shells.
  5. Slowly mix all ingredients together, starting at the edges. Continue to do so until it starts to form a crumbly texture.
  6. Knead the pasta dough for 5 – 6 minutes or until it reaches an elastic consistency
  7. Cut pasta dough into three pieces
  8. Wrap two of the pieces in glad wrap and refrigerate
  9. Flatten first piece of dough to ½ cm in thickness
  10. Select the thickest setting on your pasta machine and slowly roll it through the flat section.
  11. Fold the pasta sheet in half length-wise and repeat
  12. Place the pasta in the fetuccini section and start to roll, ensure you place your hands underneath to catch the fettucinni.
  13. Repeat the above for the remaining two pieces of dough.

You’re done! You can now freeze your pasta, or if planning to eat within 3 days, place it in your fridge!

I hope you enjoy!
