Fresh pasta dough

Ingredients

  • 250g 00 flour
  • 250g semolina flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 8 egg yolks

Method

  1. Combine both flours and place on a clean surface.
  2. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and yolks.
  3. With a fork break up the eggs as you bring in the flour.
  4. Stir with the fork until you have a dough which you can work with your hands.
  5. Knead well until you have a smooth, silky and elastic dough and a clean surface.
  6. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and rest it in the fridge for a while.
  7. Divide the pasta into 4 pieces and work one at a time, keeping the others covered to avoid drying out.
  8. Roll out with a pasta machine into thin sheets about 10cm wide and 1-2mm thick. It is possible to use a rolling pin, but this takes a lot more time, and elbow grease!
  9. Fresh pasta will keep in the fridge (covered) for one day or it can be dried and stored in an air-tight container.
