Easy Homemade Pasta Shells

Easy Homemade Pasta Shells

You can easily make these cute shell shaped pasta if you have a sushi rolling mat. I think it will be fun making them with your child.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Sushi rolling mat
Bread flour ( or semolina flour)
200 g
Beaten egg
1 egg
a small amount
Olive oil
1 tablespoon


1. Add all the ingredients to the bowl and knead! The dough should have a springy texture, a little firmer than udon noodle dough. Adjust the amount of water.
2. Shape the dough into balls, about the size of a soy bean (small piece), and place on the sushi rolling mat.
3. With the pad of your thumb, roll out the dough diagonally against the sushi rolling mat, and the dough will roll up into a cute shape.
4. Spread the pasta apart on a baking sheet to prevent them from sticking to each other.
5. Add salt (not listed in ingredients) in hot water, boil the pasta as you usually do, and they are ready! The cooking time is about the same as regular fresh pasta.
