Recipe for Handmade Whole Wheat Pasta

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 2 cups 100% Wheat flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • Water, as needed

  • Directions for Making Whole Wheat Pasta

    Combine flour, eggs and salt. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, until your whole wheat pasta dough becomes firm (not sticky). After each tablespoon of water, check to see if dough has firmed. Amount of water will vary depending on your flour.

    Form a rectangle and roll dough as thin as you can. If dough starts to spring back when rolled, let the dough rest for ten minutes then resume rolling.

    Trim the edges of the dough and roll the flat sheet of dough into a jelly roll. Using a very sharp knife, slice the roll into small rounds. Unroll the rounds into long whole wheat pasta noodles, and toss them with flour on a baking sheet to dry, or cook immediately in boiling water.

    Fresh homemade whole wheat noodles will only take about 4 minutes to cook. They are done when they float to the top of the water.
