If you love pasta, I encourage you to make your own, fresh at home. There’s nothing quite like it. Texture, taste and an endless array of fun colours and patterns that can be created with a little imagination and very little equipment.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Here I just want to share with you my basic egg pasta dough recipe, with a couple of tips and tricks to get you inspired to experience how satisfying making your own pasta at home is.
The best thing about this is that the pasta recipe can be used for a multitude of shapes, including filled pastas. The choice is yours.
Give this a go, starting with this basic recipe and technique. It does help if you have a pasta roller. Mine is an attachment for my KitchenAid, but there are plenty on the market. That said, a rolling pin and clean tabletop do the trick nicely too.
I’m sure you’ll love making your own fresh, silky pasta at home.
