DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the all purpose flour and semolina flour together. *This is very important*.
  • Using a Stand Mixer with the Dough Hook: Put all ingredients into the mixing bowl and turn the mixer on medium speed.
  • Allow the dough to mix until it forms a ball.
  • Take the dough out and lay on a lightly floured surface. The dough should be pliable, but not too sticky. If it sticks to your hands, mix in a little bit more semolina flour.
  • Push the pasta dough through the pasta attachment on your stand mixer.
  • Dust pasta with semolina flour as it comes out of the attachement.
  • Toss fresh pasta in semolina flour and place on a tray. *Be liberal when dusting and tossing the fresh pasta in semolina flour so that it does not stick together.*.
  • By Hand: On a clean work surface, make a mound of the flours and salt with a well in the middle.
  • Add the eggs to the well, and start stirring with a fork, slowly incorporating all the flour until the dough comes together.
  • Knead the dough until it is soft and pliable. This will take several minutes.
  • Run the pasta dough through the widest setting on your pasta machine, fold into thirds, and roll again. Continue this process until the dough is shiny and elastic.
  • Work the dough through the settings of the machine until the desired thickness is reached.
  • Use the attachments to cut the dough into whatever shape you like.
  • Toss fresh pasta in semolina flour and place on a tray. *Be liberal when dusting and tossing the fresh pasta in semolina flour so that it does not stick together.*.
  • Cook fresh pasta in salted boiling water. Length of time depends on the shape you make. Fresh pasta will cook much faster than store bought pasta.
