Learn how to make your own homemade pasta recipe. Not only is homemade pasta superior in taste to store-bought noodles, it’s also very easy to make and only needs 3 simple ingredients that you probably already have available in your kitchen. This is a great heritage cooking recipe to learn.

Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrophow to Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrop for Rocket science has no place in my kitchen.

As much as I love to cook, I sometimes run across certain tutorials/techniques that make my no-fuss brain want to explode.

Take fresh pasta for example.

Many of the “basic” fresh homemade pasta recipes you find floating around Google make homemade pasta seem all but attainable with their complicated formulas, detailed instructions, and mind-numbing array of ingredient options.

No thanks.

But today I’m here to let you in on a little secret the homemade-pasta-gods probably don’t want you to know:

It’s entirely possible to make very delicious, perfectly textured, from-scratch homemade pasta without the fuss. And only three ingredients. You’re welcome.

Homemade Pasta Recipe

Yield: approximately one pound

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour (see note below)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I love this one)
  • 3 large eggs

Directions:

Combine the flour and salt.

Make a well in the center of the flour, and add the eggs.

Gently begin to mix the eggs, gradually drawing in flour with each stroke. Eventually a stiff dough will form.

Knead the pasta dough for 8-10 minutes.

If the dough is too dry and won’t stick together, add a 1/2 teaspoon of water. If it is too sticky, sprinkle in a bit more flour.

Keep in mind this dough will be much stiffer than traditional bread dough. However, the longer you work it, the smoother and more pliable it will become.

You’re looking for a smooth texture. If your dough is still rough, keep kneading.

Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrophow to Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrop for We are looking for a smooth, satiny consistency, which will develop the longer you knead.

Cover the well-kneaded dough tightly with plastic wrap, and allow it to rest for around 45 minutes. (This resting phase is super important, as it gives the dough time to relax. Otherwise, you’ll fight it the whole time you are rolling it out.)

After the resting period, divide the dough into four portions and roll into a small, flat circle. Now comes the cool part!

How to Use a Pasta Machine

I’m really picky with my kitchen gadgets, and generally only keep the necessities. However, I’m very loyal to my pasta machine (affiliate link) and it has earned its place in my crowded cupboards. However, if you’re hand-rolling the dough, something like this noodle cutter could be helpful.

Ready to roll

Rolling the dough is a process– you need to make several passes, throughout each thickness setting for the best results. I start with the biggest setting (usually 5 or 6), run it through once or twice there, then gradually adjust the settings to be thinner and thinner until I have the perfect sheet of golden pasta.

Folding into thirds before the next pass through the roller

 

Between each pass, I fold the strip into thirds. This helps square up the edges and keeps things even. Then simply roll it through the cutting side of the machine to slice into spaghetti or fettuccine.

Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrophow to Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrop for

Rolling Pin Instructions:

If you don’t have a pasta machine, you can use a rolling pin and knife (or pizza cutter) instead. Keep in mind you’ll want to roll it out as thin as humanly possible, as it will plump up considerably once you cook it.

Roll each portion of dough out on a well-flour surface and then cut into thin strips. Your noodles will be more rustic, but they’ll still taste amazing. If you’re hand-rolling the dough, something like this noodle cutter could be helpful for cutting more even noodles. (You know, if you mind your noodles being rustic and uneven…)

From here, you can either cook your pasta right away (3-4 minutes in salted boiling water) or dry it for later. If you’re drying your pasta for later, this drying rack can help them dry faster and more evenly.

It also freezes well– just make sure you don’t throw it into the freezer in a big lump, because then you’ll end up with a pasta dumpling when you go to cook it.

Serve your perfect homemade pasta with homemade sauce, or olive oil, Parmesan, and fresh herbs.

You can also try your homemade pasta with either my homemade butternut squash alfredo sauce or my fresh fast tomato sauce recipe. Yum!

Kitchen Notes:

  • There are a variety of opinions when it comes to flour for making homemade pasta, and some people get all fancy with specialty flours (traditionally, pasta is made with semolina flour). However, I’ve had wonderful results just using regular unbleached all-purpose flour. If you like, you can use a mix of whole wheat flour, combined with the all-purpose. Keep in mind the more whole wheat you use, the more the consistency of the finished noodles will change.
  • If at any point, your fresh pasta is wanting to stick to the surface, the machine, your rolling pin, or other pieces of pasta, add more flour. I’m usually very generous with my flour-sprinkling. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a sticky blob.
  • I’ve not tried this recipe with gluten-free flours, sorry!
  • You can easily make flavored fresh pastas by adding fresh or dried herbs to the dough, or spice it up with garlic or onion powder.

Homemade Pasta: Your Questions Answered

How do I cook homemade pasta?

Homemade pasta cooks way quicker than store-bought pasta. Place your homemade pasta in a pot of boiling salted water, and boil it for two minutes. Taste and, if not done to your preference, continue boiling for up to two more minutes (so 2-4 minutes total).

How do I store homemade pasta?

If you’re not eating all of the pasta right away or you want to use the pasta later, you can air dry the pasta on a drying rack or on a baking sheet for about an hour. Then transfer it to an airtight container and either refrigerate the pasta for 2-3 days or freeze for around 2-4 weeks. Be careful how your package your pasta or it can turn into a blob of smooshed dough.

Why do you need to have the dough rest before making pasta?

Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrophow to Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrop for You allow the dough to rest to give the flour time to fully absorb the liquid and also to allow the gluten to relax. Gluten is what allows the pasta to stretch and be rolled out super thin.

    My mom had a noodle-making business when I was growing up. Gotta say, it’s a lot of work to fill a kitchen and dining room with 100 sq ft of noodles, but I knew how to make dough by the time I was 8.

    It definitely tastes better than bagged noodles in the store!

        I’m afraid I have to respectfully disagree – not only with the content but with the tone of Sir Cranky-a-lot’s reponse. The egg yolk (“il rosso” in Italian, or “the red”) is a brighter yellow, often closer to orange in farm fresh/free-range eggs. Whether it is their diet or the processing of large scale poultry operations that results in lighter egg yolks, there is a difference that Colleen correctly points out. If the eggs have darker yolks, then the resulting pasta will be more yellow. I grew up on a farm with chickens and lived in Italy for 5 years where I learned to make pasta, so I write from personal experience and not from any fermentation of the brain – thank you very much!

      • Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrophow to Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrop for Sylvia/KnowWhere Farms says

        I can speak to our farm fresh eggs being different than that of a typical commercial egg. The colour of the yolk changes through the year, becoming more orange than yellow depending on how much green plant they have in their diets. The firmness of the egg also changes, typically with firmer egg whites when the hens have more access to insect proteins.

        I have eggs from the store in my refrigerator and some that are fresh from 8 hens that I take care of when their people are out of town. I can confirm the yolks are darker orange than the pale yellow orange you see from the store. Fresh eggs are higher in nutrients than conventional eggs. There is also scientific evidence that hens fed soy feed have soy proteins in the yolk so for people with intolerance to soy should avoid eggs fed this way.

    When I had more chickens producing WAY more eggs than I could sanely use, I made angel food cakes to sell at the local farmer’s market. What to do with all those leftover yolks? Make noodles, of course! 🙂 You have to add water to make up for the missing whites, obviously. My recipe was 4 egg yolks, 1/4 c. cold water, 1 1/2 c. flour and 3/4 t. salt. Instructions are the same as the above recipe.

        I did make this tonight and I live on the east coast. You’re right- definitely too much flour- I only needed a cup and a half, plus 1 tablespoon of water and I added just a little oil on the counter to knead it in. Turned out perfect but the above recipe was far too dry for the east coaster i am!

      Ive been searching for G.F. homemade noodles and not having luck. I made some with Buckwheat flour but they were to dry and just crumbled. I kept adding egg and water trying to get it the normal soft dough and never achieved it. I got it enough to roll out but would never make it thru the machine. I didn’t add xanthum gum so maybe that is the difference?? I will try them with the rice flour too. Thank you.

    I dry my homemade pasta noodles on an old sheet that’s draped across the bed in the spare bedroom to dry. That’s how my grandmother and my hushband’s grandmother dried their noodles. Once the noodles are dried I package them in ziplock freezer bags and store them in my chest freezer in the basement. Happy pasta making everyone!

    Jill –
    When you cook the fettucini noodles must they be done in small batches so they don’t stick together? Or is adding oil to the water necessary?
    I made a batch of fettucini and had a problem with them clumping together.
    Also… How dry should they be? Leather-like… Not brittle?
    Thanks for your help and inspiration!

      • LeeAnn says

        You shouldn’t ever add oil to pasta cooking water. That’s generally a big Italian pasta no no. The same process that keeps them from sticking together prevents the sauce from clinging properly to the noodle. If you flour your noodles very well and have the water at a rolling boil they shouldn’t stick. Also, make sure you’re using a big enough pot.

        The recipe is great!

    • Victoria says Victoria says

      I threw in all my noodles when i cooked my noodles and surprisingly they didn’t clump. But i also added salt and a touch of margarine (for the oil) to my water and periodically sturred.

      We just made these again. Yes it seems like the dough is too thick, but it’s not. You have to knead it and it will be tough to do. Then put a little oil or grease in bowl, out dough in bowl and turn over, cover tightly with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for 45 minutes, minimum.

    Made this yesterday with 00 flour. It was good but not as tender as the pasta I had in Italy in September. Made all by hand so I will give it another try with the Kitchen aid. I needed a lot more moisture, added in splashes while kneading, but dough was nice and soft and quite easy to roll out by hand. Used my new pasta cutting rolling pin to cut, dried, lightly floured on a dish towel, 1 hrs, no sticking when I cooked. Recommend this.

It’s been a while since I made pasta, but it all came back to me after looking at your recipe. My mom never bought pasta, and never used a machine to cut what she made. Not sure if I’m that good with the rolling pin. However, she’d continuously fold each side of the rolled pasta toward the center until it looked like a scroll. Then she cut it by whatever width she wanted. Finally, she’d scoot a wooden spoon under the center and lift. Voila! Pasta would unroll. She would then take a broomstick, place it between two chairs, and hang the pasta to dry. Having company? Her rule of thumb was one egg per person. Add flour accordingly, or make more to freeze! Man, she was a master cook. Wish I watched her more when growing up!

    I love this recipe. People expect store quality when it comes to homemade. They don’t understand there is a difference! This recipe is so easy and tastes like REAL homemade pasta. The key is, like you stated, always flour! I don’t just sprinkle, i rub flour into the dough. It gives it a rough like texture and the dough doesn’t stick. I also found a pizza cutter is easiest to cut if you don’t have a pasta machine. Of course, it takes a few tries to get it consistent, but practice and patience does the job.

    I am in a catagorie all by myself in my area because I like to make my own stuff. From pasta to soap to socks. And everything in between. I am so glad to see homemade is still alive. Keep up the good work. Your noodle recipe is the exact one I have used for 45 years.

    So which pasta maker do you use? I looked on Amazon and holy cow, there’s a lot of them ranging in prices to cheap to very expensive……..I didn’t get the affiliate link to work for me…….thanks…..

    We enjoyed this easy recipe! Did half and half semolina and all purpose flour. Rolled out with a rolling pin and used a pizza cutter. Super easy and delicious! Thanks!

    It worked! I’m not a cooking whiz, but this one was so easy. The family loved it. I just made them, and served them that night. Thank you for making it simple. I had bought a machine years ago, and was ready to pass it on, but I saw your post just in time. I’ll never buy ready made again!

  21. Jim Miller says Jim Miller says

    I use oo flour and use a KitchenAide for the mixing/kneading. About 8-10 short pulses on the machine ( it will come together in a ball). A couple of gentle kneads and form it into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and rest. Great tesults every time, minimum effort.

    Before I try this I’m just wondering, can you make ravioli with this recipe? I just got some pasta machines and I would like to make some.

    This pasta is awesome! My whole family loved it, but I just needed to boil it a little bit more. I first boiled it for 4 minutes but it was still a little bit hard so I did it again for about 2-3 more minutes. Also, if you’re wondering where you can buy a pasta maker, you can buy the CucinaPro on Amazon.
    Thank you so much for this recipe. I am going to make this all the time!

      Ok I wasn’t paying attention. Did 3 eggs 2cups flour 1/2 tsp salt. We a bit dry then reread receip and noticed said 1 til olive oil. I put some in after kneeding and kneeled again. Will this turn out right?

  29. L.MAUS says

    This made a nice amount of pasta! I did half fettuccine and half angel hair just to play with my pasta roller. I’m going to make some from fresh and dry the rest, how do you recommend storing the dried pasta? Thanks for a great recipe!

    First time I made fresh pasta I was told to use 00 flour. That stuff is expensive for a little bag. Then I saw this recipe and gave it a try. I made fettuccine Alfredo, and it was fantastic. It was very easy. If I say it’s good, IT’S GOOD! I’m a big food critic, especially towards my own cooking. I will use this recipe for future pasta making. Can I freeze pasta dough if I wanted to make ahead or in bulk?

    I have made this pasta twice before and it came out perfectly each time! It’s so easy and tastes great- way better than store-bought pasta. Everybody should try this recipe! Just one question: Can I use whole-wheat flour to make this healthier?

    P.S. If I could, I the 1 last update 28 May 2020 would give this recipe 10 stars!P.S. If I could, I would give this recipe 10 stars!

    so i read this recipe and wanted to use it, but then i had a recipe for pasta on the back of my Bob’s Red Mill flour… and it didnt turn out great. Tried this recipe after and it was amazing. Thankkkkkks

  35. TEH says

    One tried with other recipe and never success. Hoping this is will work for me.

    All I have is the Kitchenaid stand mixer pasta extruded. Does the rolling part need to be done? Because I don’t have any rolling attachment.

    Thanks

    Question for you guys- I have heard that you cant rdy egg noodles to use later…is this true? How long would I be able to store these noodles once dried in the cupboard? Want to make this recipe to give as Christmas gifts but need to make sure it wont spoil if all I do is dry it (not freeze it)

    Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrophow to Ice Chest Wood Stand Diy Backdrop for Many years ago I had a Polish lady teach me the art of noodles & perogy’s
    She put a broom handle across two chair’s with a sheet under it & hung the noodles to dry that way,so if they broke as they dried they would still be clean on the sheet.
    I also learned that the rest period is the secret to good noodle or perogy dough,she told me make my dough nite before let rest in a cool place(frig)then make them next day.
    I was so blessed to have such a dear friend ,who taught me so much.
    Nothing like learning from an older generation

    Thank you so much for this simple recipe!! With the corona virus quarantine going on, I’ve had so much more time at home to experiment with new recipes. So far been making homemade yogurt, soups, cakes… and on my list next is homemade pasta! Can’t wait to try it. My husband and I had our 1 year anniversary in Italy exactly a year ago and we went to a pasta cooking class so that gave me confidence to try it again at home. Going to pair it with a Carbonara sauce – love the combo of creamy, cheesy, and bacon! Definitely comfort food. Thanks again, I also saw your butternut alfredo recipe which I may try next because I just bought a butternut squash 🙂

  43. Esther says

    These are so delicious! I love that they are simple to make and taste why better then bought noodles.
    The funny thing is I’ve had your cookbook for a while now ,but never made your noodles until today. When I seen your YouTube video it inspired me to try making some.
    Thank you Jill, for sharing this recipe and all your other skills and knowledge you share with us! You have inspired me to live more “old-fashioned on purpose “, and make things from scratch! Please keep on the great work you do!

      So glad you got around to making your own pasta. It’s a bit magical, isn’t it? Especially the first time you make it! 🙂

    This came out so disgustingly bad. I’ve successfully made pasta many times before but today i decided to try a new recipe. So i followed the recipe thoroughly and i rolled it out and it was a good texture. i used my pizza cutter to cut it and when i was done the pasta strands would not separate so I decided to just cook it and hope it separated then. i cooked it for 3 minutes (which is how long your supposed to cook fresh pasta) and it was super hard and hadnt separated. I tried to take a bite and it was uncooked in the middle and flavorless. needless to say i will NOT be making this recipe again. very dissapointed.

The recipe is from a special edition that Femina India had come out with that showcased restaurant favorite recipes including this one for mushroom fettuccine. I have made this pasta recipe several times since then but forgot to update the blog. I have also lightened up the mushroom fettuccine a bit from the original one. Its still not a calorie free recipe but it tastes delicious so I am not complaining. The pictures have been updated, and like all previous posts that I reshoot, original pics have been kept too to keep reminding me where I started and how far I have come. The pasta in the pictures above is also homemade and I used The Prairie Homestead’s fresh pasta recipe […]
