Make Your Own Pasta

The simplest pasta is made of flour, eggs and salt. Allow 100 gms per person

Ingredients :

  • 200gms plain flour
  • sea salt
  • 2 eggs (large)

Directions :

  1. Place salt and flour on a flat, wide surface.
  2. Make a well in the centre and break the eggs into the well and whisk. With your hand start to bring the dough together by slowly incorporating the flour.
  3. Knead the dough into a rough ball for 1 to 2 minutes. Wrap the dough with cling film and set it aside to rest for 30 minutes.
  4. After resting, flatten the dough with a rolling pin. Separate the dough into small parcels and re-flatten the smaller parcel with a rolling pin again.
  5. Place the flattened dough through a pasta machine and in one smooth motion run the whole length through.
  6. Repeat the step above until entire dough is utilised. Bring to boil 5 litres of water with two tablespoons of salt.
  7. Poach the pasta for 2 minutes and strain.
  8. Toss pasta in either buffer or extra virgin olive oil.
