We make this pasta dough and it turns out perfectly every time. We use the food processor for the dough and a manual crank pasta machine for the noodles. Start to finish our pasta is done in less than 15 min and ready to cook!
- 1 cup semolina flour
- 3⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs, room temp
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon water
- place first 5 ingredients in the bowl of a food processor using the metal blade.
- pulse food processor until dough takes on a corn-meal type texture.
- SLOWLY drizzle water while processor is running until dough forms a ball (sometimes we don't even need any water, so watch your dough closely).
- Remove dough to a lightly floured surface.
- From here we use our pasta machine to form our noodles. We use the widest setting for 6 cycles, lightly flowering the surfaces of the pasta if they become sticky. We then do only 1 cycle per setting until dough is to desired thickness.
- Let sheets sit for 15 minutes prior to using your preferred cutting technique.
- We spin the noodles into loose nests and dry on a cookie sheet for about 30 minute prior to cooking.
- These will cook very quickly, even the wider noodles in under 5 minute
- I have found a good tip for knowing when they are done is when they start to float!
Awesome recipe! Dough was easy to handle and pasta came out light and delicious. I kneaded using the dough hook of my KitchenAid mixer, added an extra tablespoon of water, and made fettuccine with the KitchenAid pasta attachments.
Really like the pasta. After a couple of attempts, I decided to try 3/4 cup semolina and 1 cup all-purpose, but left everything else the same. I was having difficulty with the dough getting too tough and brittle when there was a higher proportion of semolina. <br/><br/>The change really helped. It came out great, and was very easy to work with. <br/><br/>Really not sure why the change was needed. Maybe it was the quality of my semolina.
I did everything in my mixer and then let it rest so i could roll it out by hand. The next time i will use my pasta machine (I couldn't find it) to roll it out as by hand it was too thick.
