Fresh pasta dough Recipe

Fresh pasta dough Recipe
Method
  • 1

    Tip the flour into a bowl or onto the table. Make a well in the centre. Whisk the eggs and pour into the well and mix in a circular motion with a fork. Keep mixing to gradually draw in the flour from the sides of the well until the eggs have taken in all the flour and the mixture forms a 'ball'. (You may need a little extra beaten egg, water or olive oil).

    Continue to work the flour and egg together with one hand until you have a soft but not sticky dough. Knead the dough until smooth, only using a little flour on the work surface if absolutely necessary.

  • 3

    Wrap in clingfilm and leave to rest at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.

  • 4

    Once the pasta is rested, dust the work surface with flour and roll the pasta ball into a rectangular shape using a rolling pin. Roll it to a thickness of about 3mm.

  • 5

    Set the pasta rolling machine to zero and roll the pasta through the machine twice. Fold the pasta in half, adjust the machine to setting number 1 and roll the pasta through twice again. Repeat this process at every setting until you reach the required thickness of the pasta.
