How to Make Pasta from Scratch

Making Pasta is Much Easier than you ThinkMaking Paste: Start with high quality ingredients

 

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 Cups of flour
  • 3 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil (Optional)

Directions

  1. Put flour on counter or mixing board

  2. Make a mound of flour. Scoop out the center of flour and place flour on sides.

  3. Mix eggs and salt.

  4. Place mixture in the middle of the flour volcano.

  5. With a fork, incorporate all of the flour into the egg mixture.

  6. Now knead the flour and egg mixture.

  7. This may seem difficult at first, because the flour and egg mixture will be very stiff.

  8. Keep kneading.

  9. Knead until the dough is consistent throughout  and takes on a silky sheen.

  10. Cover with a bowl or plastic wrap.

  11. Allow dough ball to rest for 20-30 minutes.

  12. Your dough is now ready to be turned into pasta

Variations: I will generally add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to the egg and salt mixture. You may need to add more flour if you use this method.

Pasta dough should have a silky sheen after kneading.
