Pasta 101

Posted on July 11, 2011


 Note: No Machine Required
2 cups of all
purpose flour (or spelt, whole wheat, gluten free flour)
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3 eggs
1 tablespoon of milk
1 teaspoon of oil
Make a well on a board with flour and salt.
Whisk eggs, milk, and olive oil.
Add egg mixture to flour and stir until everything is well incorporated.
Knead for about five minutes until all ingredients are well incorporated and you have a nice dough ball.
Wrap in plastic wrap and let sit for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes have passed, knead dough a few times and then roll out with a rolling pin into a nice, thin rectangle.
Use a pizza cutter or a non-serrated knife to cut dough into strips.
Hang dough on a (makeshift) drying rack and let dry for at least three hours.
Cook in lightly salted boiling water for 10-15 minutes, or until desired softeness.
Can be stored up to four days.
