Homemade Pasta

HOMEMADE PASTA DOUGH – PART ONE

This the same recipe our grandmother has used for 80 years.

INGREDIENTS

~3 4/5 cups – 4 servings
~1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
~ 2/3 cups semolina
3 1/4 cups flour
~4 large eggs, at room temperature

YOU WILL NEED
~Pastry Board
~Pastry Scraper
~Stand Mixer and Paddle

DIRECTIONS

By Hand – Just like Noni
1. Mix together the flour and/or semolina on your pastry board.
2. Create a mound and add the eggs into the center of the dough.
3. Mix them together with a fork or your finger until yolks are thoroughly blended.
4. Begin blending dry ingredients with the eggs
5. Work the dough together until solid. You may have extra flour left over – that is OK. It will be tough to work so rely on your scraper.
6. Knead the dough with the heel of your hands until the dough becomes smooth. This is a workout!
7. Wrap the dough and let it sit room temperature for an hour.

TIP: the dough is ready when it is springy.

NOTE: If the dough is sticky and is sticking to your fingers, add a pinch of flour at a time, until your fingers are no longer carrying half the dough.

Stand Mixer
1. Mix together the flour and/or semolina in the bowl of a stand mixer
2. Add the eggs to the dough and mix them together with the paddle or dough hook until well mixed.
3. Knead the dough with the heel of your hands until the dough becomes smooth. This is a workout!
4. Wrap the dough and let it sit room temperature for an hour.

TIP: the dough is ready when it is springy.

NOTE: If the dough is sticky and is sticking to your fingers, add a pinch of flour at a time, until your fingers are no longer carrying half the dough.
