Homemade Pasta
Method
  • All we need is a mixer…place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a bread hook until it forms a nice elastic dough…
  • We check the dough to see it has the right consistency if not continue to mix for a couple of more minutes.
  • If you don’t have a mixer available you can knead the dough with your hands.  It’s not that difficult it just takes a little more time.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator to rest, for at least an hour.  Remove from the refrigerator and either through a pasta maker or with a rolling pin we make very thin sheets of dough….
  • To give some shape to our pasta we just need a very sharp knife.  You can cut our sheets of pasta in many ways without any particular shape.  Strips, noodles, or fold the sheet over and cut to make rounds to form Tagliatelle. We just need to make sure that the pieces are even in size so that we don’t have an issue when we boil them.
  • We can boil them immediately while they are fresh in salted water for 3-4 minutes or else let them dry and store them in a container for 3-4 days.
Tip
For the dough to open up easily make sure that your surface is well floured.  Flour is our friend in this circumstance….when you make the pasta you just shake off the excess flour..
