Making Pasta from Scratch at Home

Making homemade pasta can be a fun and rewarding experience that yields a delicious end product. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Gather your ingredients. You’ll need all-purpose flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Make a well in the center of the flour and crack your eggs into it. Add the salt.
  3. Using a fork, start to whisk the eggs and gradually incorporate the flour from the sides of the well. Keep mixing until the dough starts to come together.
  4. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  5. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  6. Once the dough has rested, dust your surface with flour and roll out your pasta to the desired thickness.
  7. Cut your pasta into the desired shapes using a knife or a pasta cutter.
  8. Boil your pasta in a large pot of salted water for about 2-3 minutes or until it floats to the surface.
  9. Serve your homemade pasta with your favorite sauce and enjoy your delicious creation!
