Homemade Pasta with Thomas Fuchs & Friends!

We love cooking, mostly because it brings people together.  Recently, we got our squad together and had everyone involved in making home-made pasta!  Naturally, we'll share how easy it really is, and fun!

So follow this easy step-by-step guide and you'll be a master pasta maker in no time.  Pair with great wine, close friends and maybe our 1/2 & 1/2 Collection table ware.

This simple fresh pasta recipe yields delicious noodles you can cut into virtually any shape, from spaghetti to lasagna, ravioli to fettuccine.

PREP: ABOUT 15 MINUTES / SERVES 6

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semolina flour

STEP 1: PREPARE THE INGREDIENTS

In a small bowl, whisk the first six ingredients. Set aside.

On a clean work surface, mix the all-purpose and semolina flours, forming a mound. Make a large well in the center. Pour the egg mixture into the well.

STEP 2: MIX TOGETHER

Now the fun part: Using a fork or your fingers, gradually mix the flour mixture into the egg mixture, forming a soft, slightly sticky dough. Lightly dust your work surface with flour, then knead the dough gently five times. Divide into six portions; cover with plastic wrap. Let rest 30 minutes.

STEP 3: MAKE THE NOODLES

At this point, you can roll the noodles into any shape you’d like.

Roll each ball into a 10×8-inch rectangle with a rolling pin. The thinner the better! Dust the surface lightly with flour, then roll up jelly-roll-style. Cut into 1/4-inch-wide strips for fettuccine, broader strips for lasagna or thin spaghetti noodles.

STEP 4: COOK THE PASTA

Cook your noodles in salted boiling water for 1-3 minutes until al dente. Get ready for joy.  Serve with your favorite sauce or perhaps just some parmesan cheese, olive oil, a few herbs and cracked black pepper!
