Fresh Pasta


Ingredients in these recipes use 1 cup of Italian “00” flour, 1 egg & a little water, if the egg is small. 


Nonegg pasta uses fine durum wheat semolina flour & water.   
¾ cup flour
3 Tbsp water - per person
Knead well, let rest 20 minutes before using. 


I use unbleached flour. 

 

The goal is a soft dough, rolled out, then, cut with a knife. 

 

Mixes include spinach, beets, cocoa, etc. to add color or flavor. When adding other ingredients, keep the proportions balanced, to keep the mixture from being too wet. 

 

For drying, cut the pasta into the shape you want, let it dry on a clean lightly floured cloth, or separated by parchment paper. It can also be frozen, wrapped in plastic or foil.

When using fillings, push all the air around the filling out, pinch dough together. If desired, lightly moisten the dough before pinching it. 

 

Cooking

 

Use a lot of water. Too little water causes the pasta to re-absorbe the starch. 

Salt, if desired: 1/2 oz per 4 1/2 cups of water, added just before the water begins to boil. 

Bring the water to a full rolling boil, add pasta and cover, to bring the boil back quickly, then remove the lid. 

Boil 2-3 minutes for fresh pasta

Boil 18-20 minutes for dried pasta

Gluten-free pastas cook in less time. They use potato and tapioca flours. Chestnut & bucksheet flours are also gluten-free.

For the tomatoe sauce, I used the jar of tomatoes, that didn’t seal, and a store bought can,  plus the 1/2 lb. of burger, & spices. 

 

I could have gotten 12 ravalloi, out of 1 cup of flour & 1 egg, but I didn’t roll the first 1/2 of the dough quite thin enough. I put the leftover hamburger into the remaining sauce for spegetti.

Daniel-J, prepping the dough doesn’t take long to kneed & roll out.  5 minutes or so.

Time to pre cook the hamburger and sauce, maybe 15 minutes.  Once it’s all prepared, 10-15 minutes in the oven at about 350*F.
