Chewy and Aromatic Homemade Pasta

Chewy and Aromatic Homemade Pasta

Dried pasta is pretty good as well, but fresh pasta and tomato sauce or bolognaise sauce are standout combinations.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Bread (strong) flour
100 g
Semolina flour
100 g + extra for dusting
Eggs
2
Salt
8 g

Steps

1. Measure the bread flour and semolina flour and add to a bowl.
2. Add the eggs and salt into the bowl. Gradually incorporate flour while beating the egg with your fingers.
3. At first it does not come together and is rather powdery...
4. Keep kneading and it starts to come together in about 10 minutes.
5. Continue kneading until it looks like the picture. Wrap it with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
6. Divide the dough into 4 to 5 pieces, and roll each one out. Use a pasta machine if you have one, otherwise roll it out with a rolling pin.
7. Rolling out is done once the dough is thin and looks like it does in the picture. If you're using a machine, it should be one dial before the thinnest setting. Dust the dough with flour, fold it, and cut to desirable widths.
8. I cut it into about 5 mm linguine widths.
