How To Make Pasta

Once you have learnt how to make pasta, there is no turning back to shop bought pasta.

how to make pastaMany people get put off making it thinking that it takes too much time or is hard to do, but with practice you will find that it takes only about 20 minutes to do! Here is a photo tutorial on how to make pasta.

First gather your ingredients:

4 eggs
500g flour
Salt
Olive oil
Cup of water


You can do this by hand but I use my wonderful Kenwood Major to mix the dough for me.

How To Make Pasta

Simply put all the ingredients together, except the water.

Allow the mixer to run until the dough starts to gather. If it is too dry add tablespoons of water until it sticks together, but is not sticky.

Remove from the machine and knead until smooth.

Break off a piece of dough that fits the palm of you hand.

I have an attachment on my Kenwood Major that allows me to roll the dough automatically but for many years I just had a hand operated pasta roller. Take a look at my side margin for my top recommendation. Either way, pass the dough piece through the widest setting on the machine.

How To Make Pasta

Fold the sides of the piece in to the centre so it is in three, then pass through the widest part again. You may need to repeat this again if the dough does not come out smoothly.

When it is smooth, pass your pasta strip through each setting until you have the desired thickness. I like thicker pasta for taglietelle, spaghetti and lazange.

Continue to do all the dough like this. When you have flat sections you can use them for lazange or ravioli. But if you want to make taglietelle or spaghetti then you will need to now cut your pasta strips.

How To Make Pasta

As you cut your pasta you can hang it on a coat hanger while you cut the rest. I always make sure that I make my pasta sauce first, before I start the pasta making process. I also have a big pot of salted water ready to boil. So there you are – the simplest way on how to make pasta!
