How to Make Your Own Pasta

Store bought bulk pasta is no match for fresh noodles. All you need is flour, eggs, water, olive oil, salt, and preparation time. A food processor and pasta machine will make the task easier, but they are not required. Using these ingredients, follow this simple recipe to make your own pasta.

  • Combine your ingredients – If you are using a food processor, you can mix all of the ingredients at once. When hand mixing, blend dry ingredients together first and then add the wet ingredients. You will be left with a lump of dough.
  • Work your dough – The dough will need to be kneaded for several minutes. Additional floor will need to be dusted over the dough periodically so it does not stick to your work area. You are finished once any lumps have been worked out of the dough and it is stretchy rather than sticky.
  • Shape your dough – You can use a pasta machine to form perfect strands of Italian spaghetti. If you do not have a pasta machine, there are many other options to choose from. You could simply cut the dough into noodles, or you could make stuffed pasta using cheese or meat.
  • Cook and enjoy – Fresh pasta does not typically take as long to cook as pre-made spaghetti or macaroni. Because of their starchiness, noodles often stick together after cooking. A simple way to fix this is to wet your fingers and gently separate your noodles. Some people like to add a small amount of olive oil for added flavor, though this can prevent sauce from properly soaking into the noodles. If you enjoy this Italian meal but do not have time to make it often, make the pasta in bulk and experiment with freezing and reheating it. The same goes for homemade sauces.
