Hannah's Simple Pasta Recipe

Updated: Jan 11

Pasta gets a bad reputation as being "unhealthy" but that simply isn't true. It has very few ingredients when made at home and probably contains more protein than you think!



Servings: 2 large portions

Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs at room temperature

  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour


Directions:

  1. Find a room temperature surface (not marble or cold stone)

  2. Measure out flour and create a "well" or hole in the center

  3. Then crack your eggs into the well

  4. Take a fork and begin whisking eggs into the flour. Combine slowly, adding flour from the outside well walls into the eggs

  5. Try to keep eggs in the center. If well busts it is ok

  6. Knead until a smooth ball is formed then cover with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes

  7. It is easiest to have a pasta maker that attaches to a countertop to a stand mixer but it is not necessary

  8. Salt a pot of at least 6 cups of water

  9. Divide your dough ball into 4 equal parts *NOTE make sure to cover the dough that is not being used so it doe not dry out

  10. Begin on the lowest setting of your pasta maker. Run the dough through until relatively equal on all sides then increase the setting to thin out the dough

  11. Once you reach your desires thick/thinness, use the shape pasta cutter you want and run it through

  12. Repeat this process with the remaining pasta dough

  13. Once all the pasta is finished, boil the pasta for 2 minutes for a perfect al dente



BONUS* You may choose to add herbs to your pasta. Reach your desired thinness, then add fresh herbs to half of the dough, then fold to over. Try as best you can to seal the edges before sending it through the press.



You can use this simple pasta dough recipe for any pasta! From spaghetti so lasagna! It's so easy and very delicious. Enjoy!
