The following ingredients are required to make homemade pasta:
All-purpose flour is best for traditional pasta textures.
Fresh eggs are required to bind the dough.
Salz: A pinch salt will enhance the taste of your pasta.
Pasta Dough: Here are the steps you need to follow in order to make the dough.
Create an oblong of flour in the center of a work surface.
In the egg well, add the salt.
Whirl the eggs with a spoon, incorporating flour at the bottom of the bowl.
Continue mixing the mixture until it forms a shaggy-looking dough.
You can knead it with your fingers for approximately 5-10 minutes until you get a smooth, elastic dough.
When the dough seems too dry, you can add water. You can add flour to make it less sticky if you find the dough too dry.
Rest your dough. Cover it in plastic and let the pasta rest at room-temperature for 30 minutes. Resting the dough allows for the gluten relaxes and the dough is easier to roll.
When the pasta is done resting, roll it out.
Make it easier to work with by dividing the dough.
Then, dust the flour on top and press it flat.
With a rolling pin, or with a pasta-machine, thinly roll out your dough. Try to get a sheet thickness of 1/16 (1.5mm).
If you’re using a noodle machine, lower the settings as the dough rolls through.
Replicate the process for the remaining portions.
Cutting and shaping the pasta: When the dough has rolled out you can start cutting and shaping it to the type of pasta that you want.
For linguine/fettuccine: dust with flour the dough and fold into a loose tube. Slicing it into thin stripes is then easy.
You can use either a pasta cutter or a sharp blade to thinly slice the dough.
Filling for raviolis or tortellini can be placed on a sheet of pasta by spoonfuls, with space between portions. Then, press the second pasta sheet around it to seal. Then, cut each piece with a pasta cutter or knife.
You can cook and serve your homemade pasta by:
Bring a pot full of salty water to boil.
You can cook the pasta according to package directions if the pasta you’re using is filled.
Toss the pasta with your preferred sauce or toppings.
You can enjoy this delicious pasta right away.
