Homemade Pasta Made Easy

Here is my way of making an easy homemade pasta from scratch;

  • 2 cups of semolina flour
  • 3/4 cups AP (All-Purpose) flour
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 cup warm water
  • pinch of sea salt

Mix the two flours together in a bowl with the sea salt.  Next add in your water and avocado oil.  This is an easy put together to make a homemade pasta that will impress whomever you are cooking for.  Mixing in the water and oil with the flour mixture well by using your hands - you may have some flour leftover at the bottom of the bowl and that is totally okay!  Just be sure that you get most of it and keep those hands moving by kneading the dough.  At some point, you'll take out the dough from the bowl and knead on your floured countertop.  You'll do this step for about 3-5 minutes.  You want a smooth ball of dough.  After those 5 minutes or when you get tired, give the dough some tough love, by throwing it down onto your countertop.  After a minute, put the ball of dough away and back into your floured bowl and cover.  Now, this dough can settle and rest for 15 minutes and then you can start rolling it out after that.  You can definitely wait longer if you like, but this was a last-minute put together pasta that anyone can do.  Start to finish - less than 30 minutes - WHAT?! Yes, less than 30 minutes.  Roll the dough out with a rolling pin - I did not use a pasta machine, instead I used a pizza cutter and cut each piece of dough into fettuccine sized noodles.  Bring a water to boil, pinch of salt and oil in the boiling water - add your pasta next.  The pasta will cook rather quickly - I say within 2 - 3 minutes AND there you have it! Homemade pasta that anyone can make and have it on plate within 30 minutes.  Good luck and enjoy, and please don't forget to take photos, share this recipe and tag @eatingwithmax
