Farm Egg Fresh Pasta Dough

When I was in my early twenties I took my little brother to 9 weeks of Italian cooking classes. Particularly to perfect a risotto and learn to make great pasta. I highly recommend doing this! A recipe can only do so much but you can only know when pasta dough is ready by the touch. I hope I can explain it simply enough for you to cook it like a pro!

 

Ingredients:

6 Farm Fresh Eggs.

600g Tipo ‘00’ Flour.

 

 

 

 

 

Method:

Place the flour in a bowl, make well and add the eggs. Using a fork slowly mix incorporating the flour. Once folded through tip out onto a well floured board. Start kneeding the dough. This  will take some arm muscles. Kneed until smooth. Shape into a disc, insert your thumb. If it comes out clean and not sticky it’s ready!! Otherwise keep kneeding guys. You’ll get there.

Shape into a disc, cover in cling film and rest in the fridge for half an hour.

Bring it out of the fridge and divide into 6 even pieces. Follow your pasta makers instructions.

 

Lay the paster sheets out on a floured table and allow to completely dry out before storing in sealed containers.

    Hi Jennifer, how long does it take to completely dry the pasta out? Do you then just keep it in the pantry?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Pearl,

      It depends on the weather really. A cold wet day could mean a few days. A hot dry day, maybe 12 hours! But MAKE SURE IT’S ALL DRY before placing the pasta into a sealed container. I have made the ‘rookie’ error and all my hard work was spoilt within a few days! (mould).
      Thanks for stopping by, hope you’re having a good weekend.
