Eggless Semolina Pasta Dough (From Bob's Red Mill)

"Will be attempting this tonight. Per the Bob's Red Mill website:This recipe can be made without the unbleached white flour, producing a very good pasta, but it is harder to work with. To create an eggless pasta with any type of flour, substitute about 2/3 cup water for every two eggs. Personal note: the olive oil in this makes it more workable for filled pastas than would be a fat-free dough."

Ready In:




  • On a flat work surface combine flours and salt in a mound. From a little well in the middle for your wet ingredients.
  • Add 1/2 cup water and 1 tbs oil, pouring into the well formed by your dry ingredients.
  • Mix to make a stiff dough.
  • Add one tablespoon of water at a time while combining mixture, until desired consistency is achieved (moderately stiff dough).
  • Knead 10 minutes or until dough is elastic.
  • Wrap dough in towel or place in plastic bag and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll out to desired thickness and cut as desired.
  • To cook: Bring a large pot of water containing 1/2 teaspoon olive oil to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender (approximately 3 - 5 minutes). When making lasagna, no need to boil noodles. Add directly to your recipe.

  1. Thank you for posting a wonderful recipe. Amazing noodles each time
  2. This recipe definitely gets five stars from me, as it is without doubt the best tasting pasta I have ever made from a recipe, but the recipe suggests this serves eight, while I find it would be generous to say this serves two, even with sides. It does not make much, but this recipe is so worth the time and effort.


I'm a long time vegetarian, married to an unrepentant meat-eater. Finding meals we both can appreciate is sometimes complicated. I generally compromise by making most of our meals vegetarian, but always having bacon in the freezer for him to munch. I'm currently a stay at home wife, but I fill a lot of my time volunteering. I like to make delicious foods that lean on the healthy side, but I've never met a cheese I didn't like! I would like to post more recipes but, alas, I never measure. NEVER.
