Making Pasta

Making Pasta for my family? But why? because fresh home-made pasta is delicious! Puts the store bought dried stuff to shame.

Here’s my confession: I never really liked Pasta until I started making my own.  I would make sphaghetti for my family, then eat something else. I liked Ravioli and Lasagna, but the stuff that you just add sauce to? I hated it. Then I started making my own.

Not gonna lie to ya, it is time-consuming, and there’s probably better uses for my time. So worth it though.

Here’s a simple dough recipe I found at www.thejoykitchen.com

2C flour ( I used 1 C semolina, 1 C all purpose)
3 large eggs
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

Basic gist:

Combine the dry ingredients, make a well in the middle, add the eggs and oil in the well.

Draw in the flour mix into the egg/oil mix.

Continue until the mix is well incorporated and you have a smooth elastic dough.

Let rest for 1 hour, then roll out and cut either into lasagna or any pasta shape you want. I use my pasta machine.
