Easy Homemade Pasta Dough

Rated as 4.89 out of 5 Stars

"Consistently great and easy pasta dough. This makes really great homemade linguine or ravioli for a manual pasta machine. If its too sticky, just roll a bit in flour. This recipe makes enough pasta for 24 small raviolis or 4 servings of linguine. Whatever pasta you make should take no more than 4 to 6 minutes to boil."

  2. Turn dough out onto a work surface and knead for 10 minutes. Let dough rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Divide dough into 8 balls and use a pasta machine to roll and cut dough into desired pasta shape.

First time trying to make pasta. My picky hubby loved it!!! It was pretty easy and now I'm wondering why I've ever bought pasta.

I omit the water and add an additional egg to add creaminess to the pasta. it always has great bite, and every now and then I add tumeric for a rich yellow color. my picky wife eats it right up.

I followed the directions as written and used the dough to make spinach/mushroom ravioli and it was perfect! The consistency of this dough worked well with my KitchenAid pasta attachments--much...

Amazing and easy. I added an extra yolk. Use the dough to make raviolis. Yummy. This is my new pasta recipe. Thank you for sharing.

I found this very easy to work with. The only change that I made was using "00" flour, just as I usually do. Well, two changes actually, I didn't knead the dough, I never do because I let the K...

Turned out great only change I made was the flour, I used semolina flour.

I followed the recipe as written. With the Kitchenaid pasta attachment to flatten the dough. There was enough to slice spaghetti and linguini. Even my picky eating kids liked them! Delicious!!
