How to make homemade Pasta!

The first time I made homemade pasta, I decided I would never buy pasta again! It’s so easy and tastes so much better than store bought. It pairs well with any kind of sauce or just a simple drizzle of olive oil and good quality salt!

We all know that pasta is a staple in the pantry. It’s so convenient and can help you whip up a meal in no time! The great thing about making homemade pasta is that you can dry it and store it just like the store bought kind!

I like to use a drying rack for this. They are inexpensive on Amazon and work perfectly to get the pasta completely dry before storing. Here’s the one I use: https://amzn.to/3ETfRLv

To start, all you need is flour and egg. I make enough for 2, so, my recipe is only 1 cup of flour and 1 room temperature egg.

Put your flour in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add your egg to the well and start slowly incorporating your flour into the egg. If your dough is much too thick, you can add a little water or a little of another egg. Your choice. But, keep in mind, pasta dough needs to be a dry dense dough.

After it comes together, put a damp tea towel over your ball of dough and allow it to rest for a bit, maybe 30 minutes.

After it rests, put a little flour on a work surface and roll the dough out until it is very thin. We prefer a bit thicker with our pasta but it’s your choice how thin or thick to make it. Just make sure it’s not too thick that it will be more like a dumpling than a noodle.

I take a knife or pizza cutter and cut the sheet of dough into as even as possible noodles.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add the fresh pasta, and allow to boil for about 3-4 minutes stirring regularly to keep it from sticking.

Drain and add your favorite sauce or topping.
