Making homemade pasta can be a fun and rewarding experience that yields a delicious end product. Here’s how to get started:
- Gather your ingredients. You’ll need all-purpose flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt.
- Make a well in the center of the flour and crack your eggs into it. Add the salt.
- 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.
- Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
- Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Once the dough has rested, dust your surface with flour and roll out your pasta to the desired thickness.
- Cut your pasta into the desired shapes using a knife or a pasta cutter.
- Boil your pasta in a large pot of salted water for about 2-3 minutes or until it floats to the surface.
- Serve your homemade pasta with your favorite sauce and enjoy your delicious creation!
