This is a recipe for homemade fresh pasta. It needs only a brief 3–5 minutes of cooking time in boiling water. A pasta machine is best for rolling this dough thin enough.

Serves: 2Hands-on: 30 minutesTotal: 1 hour 15 minutesDifficulty: Medium

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • ½ cup semolina flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tsp. water

Directions

  • Combine flours and salt in a large bowl. Using your fingers, make a well in the center.
  • Combine egg with water and pour into the well in the flour mixture. Gradually bring the flour into the egg with a fork to form the dough. When dough comes together, press it together with your hands to form a ball and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Knead dough for 10 minutes by folding dough and pressing it down with your hands, adding flour sparingly if dough is too sticky. Wrap in plastic.
  • Let dough rest 45 minutes before rolling as thinly as possible with a pasta machine or rolling pin. If you’re using a rolling pin, slice pasta thinly with a sharp knife when your dough is about 116" thick.
  • Cook pasta in salted boiling water for 3–5 minutes. You will know it is done when the pasta floats to the top of the water.
