HOMEMADE PASTA (A REALISTIC WAY)

December 30, 2020

One thing I love about homemaking is there are so many disciplines or crafts to work through learning and whichever one you pick will bless your family. A while ago I chose homemade pasta and it has been really yummy and fun. I like foods my family can make as a group together for special occasions, like this or when we do homemade tortillas. (But also I kept this one easy enough that I can grind it out myself on a weeknight). For homemade pasta, I only ever do spaghetti or a rustic bow tie because they are fast to do by hand. Oh well and lasagna noodles too.

I have to keep it simple if I’m going to do this (possible epitaph?), and the way I do it at least, it’s really easy. 6 and 2/3 cup flour and 11 eggs. More flour if it seems sticky, another egg if it seems dry. Mix, roll out, make a shape. Boil for 2 minutes. From my experience anything beyond this is more complicated than it has to be but I guess it depends what your goals are!

Do what you want with it. We love it as goat cheese and red pepper pasta.

Homemade Pasta
Serves six to eight

6 and 2/3 cup flour
11 eggs

Mix together by hand or with a dough hook on a stand mixer. Roll out as thin as you can with a rolling pin. (I divide it into two batches or it’s too big to manage). Make shapes. I use a pizza cutter to do spaghetti. Or you can make rectangles and then do a simple twist and pinch for bow ties.

Boil in salted water for 2 minutes.

    Can this be halved? Or can you dry it and save it for another day?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes it can definitely be halved! I haven’t experimented with drying but you can refrigerate it for the next day.
