Homemade Pasta Dough

Homemade Pasta Dough created by Veggie_Cook

This is my favorite dry pasta recipe. I got this from a little older Italian Lady that lives across the street. In the winter time, my husband plows her driveway for her and she would always send him home with homemade noodles. I decided to ask her if she would show me how to make it, and, she said gladly. I was surprised at how easy it was. And even easier now that I have a pasta machine, the same one little Rosa suggested I buy. Now my husband comes home with homemade wine after he has plowed the driveway. lol.

ingredients

directions

  • Place flour in large glass bowl and form a well in the middle.
  • Place remaining ingredients in well.
  • With fork, in a circular motion, stir wet ingredients just around rim of dry ingredients, bringing a little bit of flour into the wet mixture a little at a time until all are mixed together.
  • Pour mixture onto a floured board and knead until tight and glossy. It should be difficult to mix, to a point where no more flour will stay into mixture.
  • Form into a ball and let sit, covered, for 1/2 an hour to an hour.
  • Cut into manageable pieces to fit into pasta machine.
  • Flour pieces as needed, if dough is to sticky it will not go through pasta machine smoothly.
  • Run 3 time through larger slot size, then once through decreasing sizes progressively until desired thickness.
  • Run through pasta cutter of choice then let dry overnight. I lay noodles across a clean broom handle, that I use for this purpose only, placed in between two chairs.
  • Store dried pasta in sealed plastic bags or containers.
  • Cook as needed. Fresh pasta noodles need very little time to cook as compared to store bought pasta noodles.

    As someone asked if this could be used in a machine. Yes! This is the recipe we liked out of the ones we tried. We have a couple hand crank pasta makers and the KA attachment which we have yet to break in. Love our Pastamaster. Nothing says date night at home with your husband like homemade pasta, sauce and some vino.
