I love to make fresh pasta and I feel every urban eater should make pasta at least once in their life. And this recipe should help take some of the intimidation out of making pasta from scratch.
I did a lot of trial and error to figure out what is explained in below. [where was this recipe from www.thekitchn.com when I needed it? it would have saved me a lot of flour… smh.]
The recipe below yields a pound of pasta.
For a smaller amount of pasta, use 3/4 flower, 1/2 tsp salt and 1 extra large egg and use the instruction below as well. Enjoy!
How to Make Pasta in the Food Processor
Makes about 1 pound pasta dough; enough pasta for 4-6 servings
What You Need
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
Measuring cups and spoons
- Combine the flour and salt. Combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Pulse a few times to combine.
- Add the eggs. Crack the eggs on top of the flour.
- Process for 30-60 seconds. Put the lid on the food processor and process for 30-60 seconds until the dough comes together into a rough ball.
- If dry, add water. If the dough doesn’t come together after a minute and looks like small pebbles or cous cous, add a teaspoon of water and process again. Repeat until the dough comes together.
- If sticky, add flour. If the dough is sticky and smears against the sides of the bowl, add a tablespoon of flour and process again. Repeat until the dough comes together.
- Knead the dough into a smooth ball. Remove the dough from the food processor. Knead against the counter a few times until it comes together into a smooth ball.
- Rest the dough for 30 minutes. Dust the dough with a little flour and place it in a small mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
