Traditional Pasta Dough
2 cups all purpose flour 1 cup semolina flour
1 tsp salt 3 eggs, plus 3 additional egg yolks
2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 cup water (use as needed)
- Form a mound with the flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the mound.
- Add the eggs and oil into the well. Using a fork, mix the dry and liquid ingredients by dragging the dry ingredients into the center. Keep doing this until you have formed a sticky dough ball. Add water as needed, the dough should have soft texture. It should be moist but not stick to your fingers.
- On a floured surface, knead the dough ball. Repeat until dough is smooth, elastic, even in color and no longer sticky.
- Wrap dough in plastic wrap. Set dough aside to rest for 15-30 minutes.
Pasta flour does give it a different flavor. Buy it!
We had a homemade pasta drier. Hangers on the chandelier did the trick.
