- Ready In:
- 1⁄3 cup tapioca flour
- 2 tablespoons potato starch
- 1⁄3 cup cornstarch
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon xanthan gum (I used Guar)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon oil
- Combine dry ingredients.
- Beat eggs lightly, add oil and mix into dry ingredients.
- Work into a ball and kneed for a a few minute.
- Put through your pasta maker following its instructions.
- (Stuff with filling if you are making ravioli).
- Cook pasta in boiling water with salt and oil.
- The book says it needs 10-20 minutes, I found 5-8 worked for me.
- If you want to save pasta for later freeze before boiling. Flash freeze raviolis individually before putting into a bag so they don't stick together.

Fantastic gluten-free pasta! I doubled the recipe and used Aussie cup measurements, 70gram eggs (large) and olive oil. The pasta was very soft -so I incorporated more tapioca flour as I kneaded it. Spread some tapioca flour on my bench to roll out the pasta and on my fork to press together the ravioli. Wrapped in cling-wrap to rest for 30 minutes before rolling out. I did try the pasta press but my dough was very soft and pliable. I used a rolling pin with great success. I didn't find the dough hard to work with at all. Perhaps my eggs were larger or I added a larger amount of oil . 1 Aussie tablespoon equals 4 teaspoons. I made my pasta into ravioli and used your Recipe#263927 as filling. Topped with a gluten-free bottled sauce and fine slices of parmesan cheese. This is the best gluten-free pasta I have tasted. I cant wait to make it again to use in my lasagne. *Reviewed for PAC Spring '08* Thanks GlutenFreeKitten this pasta was wonderful and a real budget saver too :) Photos to be posted also.

Started living the gluten free lifestyle about 1 year ago due to intolerance. I love cooking and baking, and don't eat of of boxes very often so it wasn't the biggest change...but I sure do miss some things! As well I am big into bread making, and have just started making my own pasta! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
