Recently I have found myself
Since then, I have made my own pasta several times and each time has been equally successful and delicious. The recipe in this post shows you how to make a simple linguine pasta from scratch, but the dough is the same for any type of pasta. Once it is rolled out, you can experiment with different shapes of pasta like farfalle or even ravioli on your own, but linguine is definitely an easy shape to start with, for those who have never made pasta before.
I took this pasta and made a Vegetarian Pasta Carbonara with it. If you are interested in that recipe it will be up on this site soon so stay tuned for that.
Basic Pasta Recipe
3/4 cup of Flour
3/4 cup of Semolina flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 Eggs, beaten
2 Tbs. Water
2 Tbs. Olive Oil
Combine the dry ingredients together, and form into a mound on a clean work surface.
(You can form the dough in a bowl or stand mixer if you prefer)
Form a deep well in the middle of the flour mound and fill with the eggs, water, and oil.
Slowly begin to stir the flour into the egg mixture incorporating it little by little, making sure not to let the liquid spill out of the well you made.
Once the liquid is well combined and has formed a very shaggy looking dough, knead the dough with your hands until all the flour is incorporated and the dough is smooth and has a nice golden color. (This will take 7-10 minutes of kneading)
Cover the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to let it rest.
Add the pasta to a salted, boiling pot of water and cook until al dente.
(It will probably only take 5-7 minutes since the pasta is fresh)
Look for an upcoming post to see how I used the fresh linguine I made here to make Vegetarian Pasta Carbonara.
