Homemade Pasta

I never knew making homemade pasta would be so easy. A couple of eggs, flour and your time is all that is required.



2 eggs and 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, divided

Make a well with 1 cup of flour on a work surface and add eggs. Using your fingers, work the dough until it is smooth, adding flour whenever it seems too moist. Let it rest in the fridge for a half hour.


Roll dough out as thin as you possibly can on a floured surface.


My first attempt was to roll the dough and cut it, unfurling the dough afterwards.


That yielded some pretty shapes but it was hard work unrolling them without tearing the soft dough.


I had to enlist some help.


A pizza cutter made things go much smoother.


After drying on wire racks, the pasta is easy to store.


The finished product was fresh, flavorful and fulfilling, to say the least.  It takes just 5 minutes to cook at a rapid boil.

Try adding spinach, tomato or beets to your pasta dough to make a more wholesome meal.

      I know! It was much easier than I thought it would be. You don’t need to use semolina flour or have a pasta roller.


I would love to hear from you!
