Pasta recipe: how to do it at home without a machine?
Have you ever thought of making your tagliatelle recipe fresh, without having to buy a package of pasta from the store? Perhaps, this has already occurred to you, but you have never dared to do so. With or without a machine, in both cases the final product is certainly of better quality than anything you can find in the supermarket! It is very easy to prepare and, in addition, you will be proud to have made it all by yourself! For the purpose, you will need:
- 480g flour
- 5 eggs
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 C. salt
For the preparation, please mix the flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour to put the eggs and olive oil. Mix everything with a fork until you get a thick consistency. Then, knead to have a smooth dough, form a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap. Let it sit in the fridge for half an hour! Then flour your work surface well and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. In the end, it must be very fine! Before plunging your dough into a pot of boiling salted water, fold it over to form a roll. Cut into small slices! Drop them into hot water for about 4 minutes. Finally, let them dry for 1 hour before moving on to our next super tasty pasta recipe!
