How To Make Fresh Pasta With A Stand Mixer
Save money and time by batch cooking. Fresh, homemade pasta made with a stand mixer is quick to make, easier than you think, delicious, and stores well in the freezer. Perfect for healthy, home made suppers!
Servings: 8 people
- 300 g plain flour - preferably "00"
- 150 g semolina
- 4 eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp salt
Add all the pasta ingredients to the bowl of your stand mixer. Using the dough hook, bring the ingredients together on the lowest setting. Then knead for about five minutes one or two setting faster, depending on your machine.
Cover the bowl and leave the dough to rest for an hour.
Cut into four, and flatten with your hand or a rolling pin until it will fit in the pasta attachment of your stand mixer.
Pass through the pasta maker on the widest setting. Pass through again. Reduce the thickness setting of the machine, and pass through twice again.
Repeat until you have reached the second thinnest setting (if making tagliatelle). If the pasta gets to be too long to handle, simply cut in half.
Roll and cut into strips with a knife, or slice using a roller tagliatelle cutter.
Cook in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for about 2 minutes. Add your preferred sauce and serve.
The finest milled "00" flour is best, but you can use any plain flour.
The semolina is a nice addition, but not absolutely necessary. If not using it, measure 450g of flour.
Fresh pasta can be frozen. Either roll, cut and freeze or freeze a lump of the dough.
Rolled and cut pasta can bee cooked from frozen. Just drop into a large pan of salted boiling water.
