Italian cooking recipe with pictures:  handmade pasta


handmade pasta

go to the basic recipe for dough with flour quality description 

Preparation: step-by-step photographed recipe

handmade pasta

arrange whole your dough on a wooden or marble sprinkled with flour counter (my grandmother could do it on a cloth, but I don't suggest to try if you are a beginner...).
Preparae the pasta dough following the basic recipe. Here we have a ball of egg pastahandmade pasta dough
flouring rolling pinFlour a little the rolling pin
Take the rolling pin just before the handles roll on the dough by exerciting a homogeneous pressure. 

Attention for your comfort:

  •  The movement starts from the shoulders, not from the arms

  • the wrists are mobile

At the end you will have a homogeneous circle,  rough and transparent. It should be enough dry for being rolled without sticking and not too dry or it will be impossible to make its shape 
When you prepare large quantities  make few "eggs" at  time (4), or you will have difficulty in drawing up the pasta
