Description

Homemade pasta is better than store bought pasta.

Ingredients

  • 5-⅓ ounces, weight Plain Flour
  • 2 whole Eggs

Preparation

Sift the flour. Pour flour in a bowl. Now make a well in the center and break in the eggs.

Using a folk, whisk the eggs until combined and then start adding in some the flour.

Use your hands and knead the dough about 5 minutes, adding a little flour if necessary. Dough must be smooth and pliable.

Now cover the dough with a tea towel and allow to relax about 30 minutes.

Take the dough out of the bowl and roll it into a large rectangle 12×12 inch and 1/8 inch thick in size, using a rolling pin and more flour for dusting.

Using a very sharp knife, cut dough into 1/8 inch thick strips.

To cook pasta, take a large pot. Pour 500 ml water and add 2 teaspoons salt. When the water is boiling, add cut pasta. It cooks in about 10 minutes. Remove cooked pasta using tongs and put them in a colander. Drain well. Do not rinse.

Enjoy.

This makes the most terrific pasta. My husband and I eat fresh pasta once or twice a week and there truly is no comparison with the dried, grocery store stuff. Once you do it a couple of times it’s not even hard, and you can use all different kinds of flour, depending on your preference. Try adding just a tiny bit (1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon) of baking soda to your flour before you mix in the eggs and they poof up beautifully in the boiling water. Definitely try this recipe, you’ll love it.
