Pasta is one of the most versatile food items you could ever find. It comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, and you can prepare it in many different ways, using different sauces, meats, and vegetables as well. You can eat it hot or cold, with oil, in soup, or fried. And it doesn’t take a lot of effort to make your own pasta at home either. Just follow the easy steps below.
For starters, we’ll be making simple flat-noodle pasta, such as fettuccine or tagliatelle, depending on how thinly you cut the dough. Later on, you can make other shapes of your own, following the same basic recipe.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
Large mixing bowl
Small mixing bowl
You can dry this pasta by hanging the strips over a clean wooden pole placed between two sturdy chairs. Let it dry for at least 3 hours, then store in an airtight container for 4 days at room temperature.
To cook your homemade pasta, just boil it until it is al dente. Do not overcook so that it does not become soggy.
