Ever had fresh pasta? If so, we’ll bet you agree with us that its firm, toothsome bites and rich, eggy flavors are pretty much irresistible. It turns out that making fresh pasta at home is not only inexpensive but also quite simple. Fifteen minutes of prep — and two hours total — is all that’s needed to master a reliable procedure for homemade noodles.
ChefSteps sent over the video below on how to quickly assemble pasta dough. The recipe was specifically designed to require minimal resting time and ensure consistent rolling results. Some added gluten helps give the pasta just enough body to hold up and not look limp and overcooked. And while high-quality Caputo flour yields the best results, all-purpose flour can also work in a pinch. The process is also one of the more delicate and pretty ones we’ve come across in our years in the kitchen.
