Homemade Pasta
« on: March 06, 2019, 08:11:42 PM »
Anybody else make it? 
Usually make fettucine type noodles, however I Have never made lasagna with homemade pasta, so going to give it a go tomorrow. Also did a few angel hair nests with the left over dough.   :drool:

I make my own too. I am ruined for ever eating store bought noodles again.
Couple things, a lot of the noodle recipes call for semolina flour. I have to say I tried it and prefer all purpose white flour.
Just making wide flat noodles for lasagna or the kind my Mother made for chicken noodle soup where the noodles are thicker and you do not need to run them through a machine and are extremely easy to make.
If however you are making noodles in a machine it is hard to get the dough dry enough. Too wet and they stick together. I find I have to mix the dough by hand as my mixer will not mix dry enough dough. If the dough will hold together though you can mix it by running it through the noodle maker in the flattening out process.
Recipe 1 cup flour to one large egg, couple drops of water. Can't get much simpler then that.
Another interesting and good pasta I made is Canneloni which you can make on a griddle.

One thing not to do is I made some spinach pasta for a pot luck one time. Green noodles no matter how they taste do not go over well.

Have you tried using Semola flour instead of Semolina?  Semola is a finer ground flour and is far superior to Semolina and any other flours that I have tried in my opinion.

Yes!!  Taste and mouth feel are way better than store bought. (although store noodles have their place) We use the kitchenaid attachment, its actually pretty easy, and fun.

I've done this before and would do it again, given the time.  It's a decent attachment.
