Description

Homemade whole wheat pasta.

Ingredients

  • 2-⅓ cups Traditional (12 5/8 Oz) Or White (11 5/8 Oz) Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ⅓ cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil

Preparation

Hand method:

In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups of the flour and the salt. Make a well in the center.

In a small mixing bowl, combine eggs, water and olive oil. Add to the flour mixture and mix well.

Sprinkle the kneading surface with the remaining 1/3 cup flour. Turn dough out onto the floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Divide dough into fourths. On a lightly floured surface, roll each third of dough into a 1/16 inch thick square about 12×12 inches. Cut as desired. Or follow the manufacturer’s instructions for using a pasta machine to roll and cut the dough.

Mixer method:

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine 2 cups of the flour and salt. Make a well in the center.

In a small bowl, combine the eggs, water and olive oil. Add to the flour mixture. With the dough hook, mix until well combined.

With the mixer running, add the remaining flour. With the mixer on low, knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Divide dough into fourths. On a lightly floured surface, roll each third of dough into a 1/16 inch thick square about 12×12 inches. Cut as desired. Or follow the manufacturer’s instructions for using a pasta machine to roll and cut the dough.

Your can use this pasta immediately, or dry on racks for later use. It should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer, as there are raw eggs in the dough.

Seriously easy. But time consuming! I used whole wheat flour and had to add a bit more water also, but no big deal. I went with the mixer to make the dough and it was perfect. I made a blog post about it too, linking back to this recipe. I knew it would take a while, but I really didnt know that it was that easy to make pasta yourself. Thank you! http://ahappysimplelife.blogspot.com/2012/01/homemade-pasta-and-252.html

This was so quick & easy. I ended up having to add just a little more water. My husband is not normally a fan of whole wheat pasta, but he really liked this. It was a hit with everyone else too. I will definitely be making this again.
