I learned the pasta-making technique from years of making pasta with my family, and I perfected the ingredients ratios while living in Italy. Take a peek at my step-by-step photos to make the process a little easier!
There is something special about fresh, homemade pasta, especially if it was made by your own two hands. It’s chewy, light, bouncy and delicious. There is also something beautiful about the Italian tradition of making pasta by hand as a family.
Once you have a dough formed, knead it about 10-15 min. You can test if your dough is ready by pressing your finger into it. If the dough begins to bounce back instead of staying pressed in, then it is done. Wrap it in plastic and let it rest a half hour.
