I was gifted a pasta maker over the holidays and it has quickly become my favorite kitchen gadget! Ever since watching Master of None, I have been dreaming of packing up and heading to an Italian pasta school, but in reality this is as close as I’m going to get. Homemade pasta isn’t as intimidating as you may think with only 3 ingredients and 1 hour of labor and love.
Fresh Homemade Pasta
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 extra-large eggs
- dash of olive oil
Mound the flour in the center of a large table. Make a well in the middle of the flour, add the eggs and oil. Using a fork, beat together the eggs and begin to incorporate the flour starting with the inner rim of the well. As you incorporate the eggs, keep pushing the flour up to retain the well shape
Once the dough has come together, knead for 6 minutes until dough is elastic. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out in your desired shape and boil in salt water for 5 minutes or until al dente.
