Homemade Pasta Recipe from Scratch

Looking for a Homemade Pasta Recipe?

Making Fresh pasta from Scratch is a cinch.  No really it is, and it tastes so much better than dehydrated reconstituted pasta from a box I’m telling ya!  The trick is just knowing what  your looking for with it’s consistency before you roll it out and slice it up like pasta sheets!  This means working the dough and adding water sparingly in order to have a workable dough that doesn’t turn into a nightmare of a mess.

Homemade Pasta Recipe

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
1 egg
1/2 cup water (tbls’s if needed)
1 pinch of salt

The reality of a Homemade Pasta Recipe

Making pasta can seem tedious but after watching this chef in Boston whip out his Homemade Pasta Recipe for every single individual order that rang in from server tickets,  I decided i better get a little more familiar with a good recipe and understand the importance of fresh pasta with some of the fresh sauces I prepare.  I figure if this guy can throw flour down and roll out fresh pasta dough for every single individual dish by himself each time as well as cooking everything else, then I can do it once in a while.  Since I’ve rolled up my sleeves and dug into a few recipes I’ve really appreciated the fresh taste and value in eating it like this.  So no matter what flour you decide to go with or how you decide to tweak the ingredients if you decide to do your own thing just follow the simple texture guidelines and principles in the video I’ve provided and you too will pull off an excellent Homemade Pasta Recipe!
