Making your own pasta is a satisfying way to work with your hands to create something beautiful and delicious from ingredients that you choose. You can grind your own durum flour or other grain for extra freshness and nutrition.
Active Time
1 hour
Total Time
1 hour and 30 minutes
Serves
6

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb. unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 lb. whole durum flour
  • 1/4 semolina
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3-4 tbsp. tepid water

Directions:

  1. 1. In the large bowl mix together all tree flours. In the middle of the mixture pour the eggs, egg yolk and water. Using a fork, begin to incorporate the flour with eggs and water. When mixing is done transfer the dough to a work surface, preferably a wooden board.
  2. 2. Dust the board lightly with flour and begin to knead the dough. Continue kneading the dough for about 5 minutes, or until the dough is very smooth. Cover the dough with a bowl or damp cloth, or wrap it in plastic and allow it to rest for about 30 minutes at room temperature before rolling.
  3. 3. Rolling the dough out by hand using a wooden rolling pin makes a wonderful product with a texture. However, this method requires patience, practice, and strength. I love using a hand-cranked pasta sheeter to thin the dough, I feel it is an easier way of rolling out pasta dough.
  4. 4. When your dough had plenty of rest divide it into 4 sections, keeping all but one covered to prevent the pasta from forming a skin. Using your finger, flatten out the dough. Then trying a different setting on your machine roll the dough until is thin enough for your desired pasta. Slice the pasta using machine attachment. Repeat the same process with other tree sections of the dough.
  5. 5. When drying pasta, try do not let the cut pasta strips touch, or they will stick together.
