I have made home made pasta a thousand times, so why I am not counting down the minutes to braising lamb or poaching fish, I don't know. I kind of do- I am such a fat kid at heart.
I just really love pasta.
Today we made pasta dough for production tomorrow!
fresh egg pasta dough.
The classic way to make pasta dough is 1 egg to 1 cup of flour with water and salt as needed.
The recipe we made in class.... which happens to be the recipe I usually use at home is as follows...
16 oz bread flour
1/2 oz olive oil
Water as needed
Salt to taste
Measure out flour onto counter top or in a very large bowl.
Create a "well" for eggs and oil.
Add water as needed to get to the proper consistency.
Season with salt.
Let rest at least one hour.
