I was making pasta for a friend who is on a wheat-free diet and almost despaired until I discovered white spelt flour. Don't confuse it and use regular organic spelt flour. Well, you can substitute, but it's not as much like wheat flour pasta ...

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • (Preferred) Process all ingredients in a food processor until they form a ball that rides on the blades.

  • You can also let a bread machine knead the ingredients for about 5 minutes. (I've never tried this, but have heard it works well.)

  • Pasta can be rolled and cut in a regular (manual, hand-crank) pasta maker by passing it through repeatedly smaller (i.e., higher number) settings until nearly paper thin, and then run through the cutting blades. I am told it does not do so well in an automatic pasta maker.

I just want to point out that spelt is actually wheat. From about.com: celiac disease: "Spelt is a species of wheat and is NOT gluten-free. People who believe that spelt (scientifically known as Triticum spelta) is gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease are mistaken. According to the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004, foods that contain spelt or kamut cannot carry "wheat-free" or "wheat-alternative" labels." So if gluten is the reason for being on a wheat-free diet, spelt is not the answer. Read More

Very easy pasta recipe. I only used 2 tablespoons of water, it was a bright sunny day. I let it rest for 30 minutes before rolling it out on the counter and used a rolling pin, no need to pull out the pasta cutters for such a small amount, and used a pizza cutter. The label was missing on my flour but I believe that it was wholemeal spelt. I liked this but my family wasn't as keen. A great project for Covid-19. Thanks for sharing. Read More

So few ingredients however getting the right cut and not overcooking was a challenge. First time cooking noodles with spelt. Keeping this one on file for future use. Thanks Read More

I have used spelt exclusively for over a decade. I consider wheat to be unfit to eat due to the many health issues associated with a toxic protein found in wheat called a lectin. This pasta recipe is one that I have used since I permanently stopped using wheat. Read More

The dough mixed really well in my kitchenaid mixer. It's much more sticky compared to semolina and wheat so I had to dust it with lots of flour while I rolled it out. I used the pasta roller attatchment and it worked just fine. It's sweeter than the other pastas I've made so adding salt is a good idea. I'm making it again soon. Read More
