Decided one weekend to try making pasta noodles from scratch. Found a super easy recipe:
pinch of salt
water if needed
Mix your egg and flour until you get a dough ball. I used a mixer with the dough hook attachment. Added some water just to get the ingredients to mix and it took no time at all. You want a play dough like consistency.
Once you have your dough mixed, wrap it in clear plastic and chill for about 30 minutes.
Once the dough is rested, it is time to roll the dough out. If you have a pasta press, now is the time to start feeding in your dough. I, on the other hand just used a regular rolling-pin. I think I need to invest in a pasta press….
Using a sharp knife, I cut my dough into noodles and then boiled in salted boiling water for about 4 minutes.
I made some pesto and added some cherry tomatoes and parmesan. It was alright for a first try.
So simple. =)
