Hello Kitchen Lovers! During these uncertain times, we need to be sure about our health routines, and it all starts with the right diet. Today we want to share with you a magnificent homemade pasta as an easier and healthier option which can be made at home using the KitchenAid 2-Piece Pasta Cutter Attachment Set
Flour and eggs are all it takes to make delicate strands of homemade pasta. The best? you do not need to be an expert to try our three ideas for flavored pasta.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup semolina flour
- 2 eggs
- Step 1
On a clean work surface, using your hands, mix together the flours. Form a mound with the mixed flours and create a well in the center. Crack the eggs into the well. Using a fork, gently begin to beat the eggs, mixing in a tiny bit of flour with each stroke. (Protect the well by using your non-beating hand to build up the flour around the edge as you beat.) As the dough begins to thicken and most of the flour has been added, start to stir the dough. When the dough can no longer be stirred, use your hand to mix in the remaining flour, kneading until firm and elastic. Cover with a clean towel; let rest 20 minutes.
- Step 2
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 18-inch circle about 1/16-inch thick. (Be patient. This will take some time and muscle!). Be sure to roll from the center out. The dough is thin enough when you lift it and you can start to see your hands underneath. Lightly flour the surface of the dough. Starting from the side closest to you, loosely roll into a spiral. Cut into strips 1/4- to 1/2-inch wide. Unroll strips to separate. Sprinkle lightly with flour. Let stand 1 hour.
- Step 3
Cook in a large pot of boiling, salted water 2 to 3 minutes or until tender; drain well. Serve with desired sauce.
Spinach: 1/2 of a 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry, and finely chopped.
- Roasted Red Pepper
Roasted Red Pepper: 1/2 of a roasted red sweet pepper, pureed until smooth (about 3 tablespoons).
Add these flavor additions along to the well with the eggs. If too wet, mixture may need a bit more all-purpose flour. Herb: 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, rosemary, sage, oregano, or thyme.
