Fresh Egg Pasta




Using my birthday present. I should have recommended this before, but this attachment for your kitchen-aid, makes the pasta so perfect, I've done pasta for years but never so effortless and never so perfect. I use the same amount as I have done before; but this time was PERFECT.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
5 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp. warm water, if need it

Directions:

Place flour and salt in a standalone mixer or food processor or bowl

Standalone: While the flour is being mixed with a paddle, add the eggs. Stop when the dough forms and change to a hook, then knead in low for 2 minutes.

Food Processor: Pulse the flour and salt, then incorporate the eggs at the same time that you are pulsing the machine, but stop when you see all the dough coming together, sometimes it comes together in small parts; this is OK, after bring the dough to a lightly flour board and knead to bring together into a bowl.

Bowl: The hand method, with your hands mix the flour and salt, make a wheal in the center and place the egg in there. With a fork start beating eggs and at the same time start grabbing the flour from the sides. It will continuous grab flour until we will change the fork for our hands. Knead until the dough is form and pasta do not stick to our hands and form into a smooth ball.

When your dough is ready, form into a smooth ball, wrap in plastic, leave it to rest for 20 to 30 minutes.

Cook Pasta in abundant water with a good amount of salt, fresh homemade pasta cooks super-fast, it will only 
be about 2 minutes.

Have Fun Cooking and Enjoy !!!
