Homemade Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 4 cups


  • 2
    cups flour (white, or whole wheat)
  • 1
    egg, slightly beaten
  • 34
    cup milk
  • 12
    teaspoon salt
  • 1
    tablespoon oil, Canola


  • Place the flour on your worktop, and make a well in the middle.
  • Add the egg, and salt.
  • Slowly add milk, as you are incorporating the flour into the mixture in the middle (with a spoon, work the flour gently from within the well, all sides, until you almost use up all the flour) . The dough becomes homogeneous , at which point you knead it with your hands, to obtain the consistency of pizza dough. You might need to flour up your worktop a little more, to prevent the dough from sticking during kneading.
  • Place the dough on a floured surface, cover it with a tea towel, and let it rest for few minutes.
  • Flour up you worktop again, take ½ of the dough and roll it out, using a rolling pin, to 1/8 inch thickness. Use a knife, or a pizza cutter, and cut to desired shape pasta.
  • Sprinkle generously with flour, and toss gently together, so the pasta does not stick together, and let it rest.
