Easy Fresh Egg Pasta Recipe: My Love for Making Homemade Pasta Hit Me Like a Hurricane | Pasta


When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in 2017, my daughter and grandson rode through the storm at my house. Our house was not flooded, but we were flooded in the neighborhood for almost a week. We were lucky to have a generator, so when boredom set in, we started cooking. Homemade pasta was our first challenge – and successful!

This is the basic egg pasta recipe from the instruction booklet with my KitchenAid Pasta Attachment. This easy recipe was perfect for a first time pasta maker. If you don’t have KitchenAid Stand Mixer, carefree. This pasta recipe can be made with any stand mixer and pasta rolleror even by hand.

When I received my pasta accessory for Christmas, I went shopping on Amazon and bought pasta dryers, pasta cutter and one ravioli maker. Drying the pasta isn’t a necessary step (though you can do that), but the pasta rack is handy for holding the noodles while you make more. We also made spaghetti noodles, fettuccine and ravioli, which was fun to make and tasted amazing (recipe coming soon!).

<p>Serve fresh pasta noodles with your favorite sauce.  Try alfredo sauce, homemade spaghetti sauce, vodka sauce or baked feta tomato sauce.  Once you’ve made homemade pasta, you’ll want to make more and more of it.  It really makes a difference.</p>

</p>
<li>Divide the dough into four pieces.  Place in rolling pin and cut into desired noodles. </li>
<p>	
</p>
<li>To cook the pasta, add 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 tablespoon of oil (optional) to a large pot of boiling water.  Gradually add pasta and boil until al dente or slightly firm to the bite.  Pasta will float on the surface of the water when cooked evenly.  Drain in a colander. </li>
</ol>

	<strong>Remarks: </strong>If you dry the pasta, cooking takes about 7 minutes.  Fresh, undried pasta takes between 2 and 5 minutes to cook.</p>
