Homemade Pasta

Making pasta is a bit of an effort but really worth it!  I have a manual pasta machine, but I prefer to roll out the dough and cut it into the desired shape.  I use Giada’s (FoodNetwork) recipe for the pasta.  Here’s a link to her video http://www.foodnetwork.com/videos/homemade-pasta-0151120.html.


2 cups cake flour

1 cup regular flour

4 egg yolks

1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon salt


In a food processor, combine all ingredients except the water.  Once the initial ingredients are mixed together, start drizzling the water into the food processor while it is on low.  You want your mixture to look crumbly but form together when you pinch it between your fingers.  Dump mixture onto clean surface and knead until smooth.  Cover with plastic wrap, refrigirate for 30 minutes or more.  Cut dough into six pieces, rolling out one at a time to desired thickness.  I like a light noodle, so I roll my dough very thin.  Use a sharp knife to cut the pasta into thin strips for fettucine.  Meanwhile get boiling water with salt going.  Boil batches of the pasta so you don’t overcrowd.

Serve hot with your favorite sauce.
