Ridiculously Easy Homemade Pasta
Updated: Apr 22, 2021
Hey everyone! I hope you had a great week. Today I am going to share with you this ridiculously easy pasta recipe. This recipe is a huge hit in our house. All you need is flour, an egg, and a pasta maker machine. I linked the pasta maker to a machine just like mine on Amazon.
This pasta is delicious and tastes 10 times better than the store bought, dried pasta from the store. Fresh homemade pasta has an incredible texture and flavor that you just can't get from a boxed pasta.
2/3 cup flour
1 large egg
Pasta Maker Machine
Optional- Herbs like basil, cilantro or any other desired herbs
This will make enough for a healthy serving of pasta for 2 people!
Putting it together:
1. To start, make sure to clean the counters thoroughly. Then put your 2/3 cup of flour on the counter and create a well in the flour. After you have done this, crack your egg inside the well.
2. Mix the egg in the well of flour, taking your finger and adding flour as you stir the egg. * You do not need to use all the flour from the well you created. Use just enough to make it a dough that is not too sticky or wet.
3. Ball up the dough, wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit for 20 minutes. This is crucial to the end product. After it has rested for 20 minutes lightly flour both sides and run it through your pasta maker on the lowest setting 6 times -(usually 0 or 1, my machines lowest setting is 1). Every time you run it through the machine, fold it into thirds and use your fingers to press into the dough about four times as shown below. Remember repeat this process 6 times! If the pasta becomes too sticky in between the times you put it through the roller, just lightly dust the top of the pasta.
