These days I’ve tried to stay away from eating complex carbs. Pasta is oh so delizioso but my body doesn’t seem to think the same when in mass consumption. In my recent dinner class at Johnson & Wales, we had to make pasta dough to create our own pasta and I was surprised at how easy it was to make and had to share!
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
- 16 oz Semolina flour
- 1 tsp Salt
- 3 Eggs
- 4 oz Water
- Gather equipment and ingredients (mise en place – the culinary term for the former). Make sure area where pasta is to be made is clean and sanitized.
- Combine flour and salt.
- Create a flour mound. Make a central hole in the center.
- Crack 3 eggs into the mound.
- Using a fork, whisk the eggs into the flour until dough forms. If needed, add water.
- Knead dough.
- Use oil to coat the dough for storing.
- To use dough, roll out with a rolling pin or use a pasta machine.
To make bowties, you cut horizontal slivers of the dough and pinch the middle. So simple!
