 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Unbleached flour;
  • - (do not use all purpose,
  • - it's too soft)
  • 1 c Semolina flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 3 lg Whole eggs
  • 1 tb Warm water (if needed)


Mix dry ingredients on a board forming a well in the center Add olive oil
and eggs to well. Mix with a fork by gradually blending in the dry to the
egg. When it gets too stiff to use a fork, begin to knead by hand to proper
consistency (should be very stiff) If necessary, add warm water in small

Allow dough to rest while covered for at least 10 minutes. Using a floured
board, cut off pieces of dough about the size of an egg. Flatten with the
palm or your hand. Process through pasta machine by starting on the
thickest setting. Roll through machine again at each progressively thinner
setting to form long strips the width of your machine and the proper
thickness for the desired style of pasta. (this helps to incorporate the
ingredients) At this point I gently rub a small amount of flour on the
surface and allow to air dry for about 30 minutes. (this makes cutting
easier) Attach cutting head for the desired pasta type. Cut, lay-out on
floured board, sprinkle lightly with flour and allow to dry further. Can be
cooked now or rolled in freezer paper and frozen for later.

Remember, fresh pasta cooks a lot faster than the cardboard box variety.
Don't over-cook. If cut with a medium width head, these make great chicken
and noodles or cut thin for spaghetti.

By using 1 egg per cup of flour yields great looking and tasting slightly
golden pasta. For those more health conscious, I believe that the number
of eggs can be reduced and replaced with water. A little Saffron will put
back the great rich looking color.
