All white pasta recipe
I have 2 pasta recipes I prefer, this all white and the wheat recipe. Both are delicious and well worth any effort!
Servings: 8 servings
- 4 eggs room temp. All ingredients should be room temp
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose I used 2 cups all purpose and 1/2 cup semolina. If you don't have semolina, use all all purpose
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
Food processor-Add flour and salt to food processor and pulse a few times to incorporate.Next add in eggs and olive oil. Pulse several times until the dough comes together into a ball. Remove from food processor and knead for 2-3 minutes on a lightly floured surface until the dough is nice and smooth. Cover and allow to rest for at least 1 hour at room temp.Kneading by hand-Mix flour and salt on surface. Create a well and add eggs and olive oil to center. Carefully mix the eggs and oil in the center, slowly incorporating the flour from the outside of the well until it is all mixed in. Now, knead the dough fro 3-5 minutes. Cover and allow to rest for at least 1 hour at room temp. Divide dough into 6 sections for rolling. If you are using a machine, start with the largest setting. Roll through on this setting and move to the next smallest setting. Continue this way until you are at the thinnest setting. Now your pasta is ready to go. Shape it as desired. You can follow the directions on this post and make a laminated pasta formed into garganelli.Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
