  • How to make homemade pasta with ease - a simple step by step tutorial

    A few years ago, I invested in the pasta maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer. I have never looked back. If I had only known how easy it was to make fresh pasta, I would have tossed the boxes away years ago! In fact, we have enjoyed it so much, that we have purchased the pasta roller attachments as well. The options are endless when you’re making homemade pasta.

    If this is your first time making homemade pasta, I’d recommend using a basic egg noodle recipe. It’s an easy one to learn with while getting familiar with the process.
    1} Combine flour, eggs and 1 Tbsp water with your paddle attachment. You don’t want the dough to be crumbly or sticky…just doughy! Add an additional tablespoon until you reach the desired consistency on speed 4.
    2} Using your dough hook, knead for 2 minutes on speed 4.
    3} Put your pasta roller attachment on level 1. Make a flat dough ball and feed through. I usually like to do this on speed 4…fast enough, but not too fast. Continue to place the dough through increasing the setting each time…level 2, 3, 4 and finally 5 for fettuccine. Do this with all of your dough. You have to gage your dough…if it is too sticky, add a little flour to your hands & recreate your dough ball. If it appears to be too dry & not smooth enough, add a touch of water to your hands & recreate your dough ball. You’ll get the hang of this in no time!
    4} Switch to your fettuccine or linguini attachment unless you’re making pappardelle or ravioli. Feed the dough through, catching the noodles with your other hand and immediately place into your pot of boiling water.
    step 4
    5} Boil noodles 3 minutes, toss with sauce & serve!
    If you love pasta as much as I do, don’t be intimidated, go ahead and try it! After the first time or two, you’ll have noodles ready almost as quick as it takes to prepare them from a box.
