Discussing :: Fresh Egg Pasta

There's something just that much more luxurious about freshly home-made pasta, and for some reason most of the fresh pasta recipes I've found and tried all make ginormous amounts of pasta. I finally found one that I could tweak for two people with good appetites to have for a simple dinner at home (or you could probably feed 3 or 4 as part of a 4-or-more course dinner). This is just a simple recipe for plain egg pasta. It works well for noodley pasta like tagliatelle (which I tried to make here, but ended up with something between tagliatelle and parpadelle), as well as ravioli. I think most people don't realise how dead simple it is to make your... read full article

I love nothing more than making my own pasta, it is always so silky and a million times better than the bought stuff. Only problem is I need to have a day up my sleeve to make it, as I always make such a mess and have to have a few attempts before I get it right! This article has inspired me to get my pasta machine out though and I think i'm going to whip up some spinach and ricotta ravioli....mmmmmmmmm.....

I ONLY eat my own home made pasta now and love it. So fresh and cooks so fast. Yes the prep time is a bit longer, but treat the kneading as bit of an arm & shoulder workout with a bit of cardio thrown in and you are sorted. Besides, the ladies love the sight of a man working hard in the kitchen. I find that a good bottle of red wine is essential in any pasta recipe. I generally drink about two or three glasses duirng the process, but you can use more if you prefer:-)

The recipe I use is similar to the one above, except I don't salt the raw dough as I find it dissolves in the cooking process and can reduce your smooth texture a bit. I rather salt the boiling water. As a rule of thumb, I use 100g flour to 1 egg per portion of pasta, so two eggs and 200g flour is enough for two. Also, if you are making a slightly larger amount, try adding half a cup of finely pureed raw Silverbeet instead of one of the eggs. It takes a little longer to bind in the kneeding process, but it makes for a nice green pasta with a veggie taste. Great for the stronger tomato or chilly based pasta sauces.

Thanks Get Frank! I enjoy fresh pasta but have never made it before so the recipe in this article will be a great starting point for me and a way to save money (fresh bought pasta is expensive).
