Cook Something

First attempt at homemade pasta

Here goes something…

My very first attempt making homemade whole wheat pasta or pasta of any kind for that matter!

Basic Pasta Dough:

1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water

In a medium sized bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the flour, add the slightly beaten egg, and mix. Mixture should form a stiff dough. If needed, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons water.

On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for about 3 to 4 minutes. With a pasta machine or by hand roll dough out to desired thinness. Use machine or knife to cut into strips of desired width.

I chose to use my brand new chrome & red Imperia Pasta Machine my wonderful husband gifted me for Christmas this year. He also built me a custom drying rack, those out of stock stores be damned, my hubby can build!
