Homemade Pasta

We purchased a simple hand-cranked pasta rolling machine a few weeks ago and have thoroughly been enjoying it. The machine comes with fettuccine and spaghetti attachments but we really prefer to hand cut our own pasta.

This is a simple recipe but it does require some time. You can make and cook the noodles right away but we prefer to dry them out first so we can get it a little more aldente. To dry them just leave them out on the counter for a few hours. You can also freeze them after drying them.

1 cup All purpose Flour
1 cup of Semolina Flour
4 Eggs

Place all the ingredients into a food processor with a dough blade and mix until it comes together. Remove from processor and knead for a couple of minutes. Then let it rest 15 minutes. Next cut into four pieces and roll out thinly with a rolling pin or pasta roller, flouring as needed. Fold over several times and roll again. This makes the pasta silkier.
