Easy Peasy Pasta Dough

pasta dough

If you have been following my blog, you will know by now that if I have a chance to make something the easy way, I totally take it. This recipe is pretty easy and no fail. It serves about 4 people Now, I could have given you a pretty pic above, but realistically I was dusting corn flour all over the thing so it wouldn’t stick together, and I figured since I am just a makeshift chef I could probably get away with it. My method requires a food processor but you can also make the recipe by hand if you so choose.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour (Because most of us do not have semolina just lying about the house)
  • Additional flour for kneading afterward (Don’t worry, this part is easy)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 cup water
  • corn flour for dusting the pasta after it is rolled out/cut up- so that it doesn’t stick together.

Method:

  1. Crack the eggs, put them into a bowl and beat them – I promise they won’t feel a thing.
  2. Get out your food processor, add the flour, the egg mixture, salt and your olive oil and pulse.
  3. Once it is well combined, add your water.
  4. Pulse again until a dough is formed.
  5. Remove the dough. It should be sticky at this point.
  6. Put the dough on a floured surface and knead until the dough is pliable but firm enough, that it springs back to the touch.
  7. Roll out the dough to your desired thickness and cut into whatever shape you desire.
  8. You’re done! Told you it was easy peasy!
