Want to make fresh pasta dough but those pesky eggs are always getting in the way?

Well, you could always leave them out...

Here, I'll show you...

Step 1:

Serves 1-2 (depending on appetite and occasion)
Prep Time: 15 mins (plus around 1 hour of refrigeration)
Cooking Time: 2-3 mins

- 50g (heaped 1/3 cup) "00" flour
- 50g (scant 1/3 cup) coarse semolina
- a pinch of salt
- ½ Tbsp olive oil
- 3-3½ Tbsp water

- replace "00" flour with plain / pasta / all-purpose flour
- replace coarse semolina with more "00" flour
<p>I usually never get overly enthused about pasta but this is so perfect! And yea, I can't go without a nice Parmesan. Ever.</p>
<p>Made it in my food mixer with a dough hook using slightly over hand hot water. The dough is soft and smooth after 5 minutes mixing. Allowed it to rest for about an hour in the fridge. Ran it through my pasta machine on the thickest setting 10 times and wow!!! Who needs eggs?? But I multiplied all the ingredients by 10 'cos here in ITALY we eat a lot of pasta. Complimenti a LeahHawks!!!</p>
Never can find the semolina at the store. End up using all AP flour Will try again looking for it tonight.
I'm really hope you find some. Good luck! =D
Finally found some, but it was almost six dollars for a small package. Going to try somewhere else.
I know most people don't thnk of this one 1st off, but try Ebay <br>I always look there when I need ingredients that I either can't find locally. or I look on Ebay and usually ( not always) find it cheaper + sometimes free shipping
Yikes - that's bad. <br> <br>It's dirt cheap here in London. I only pay &pound;1.29 for a 1.5kg (53oz.) bag. <br> <br>Shame :(
You made a macaroni pasta! Which is any pasta that does not include egg. <br> <br>I looked all over and couldn't find a recipe online and when I tried to make it on my own it turned into a ball of rubber. : ( <br> <br>Just a suggestion, you may want to put &quot;macaroni&quot; in the title or under the related words to help others find your great recipe.
&quot;You made a macaroni pasta! Which is any pasta that does not include egg. &quot; <br> <br>I always thought that trenette was eggless pasta. Learn something new everyday. I have seen macaroni made with eggs on several italian cooking shows on PBS..
You may need to let the dough rest and then no rubber.
You're right. I didn't let it rest. I am sure that caused a lot of the rubber issues.
Hey - thanks for your comment! I really appreciate it. <br> <br>Cool - I had no idea. I've toyed around with making some pasta shapes, like cavatelli, but never macaroni. <br> <br>Thanks for the keyword tip too! =D <br> <br>
I have to say, that is a beautiful ball of dough :)
Thank you! :)
Thank you! *blush* <br> <br> <br>
oooh....yum...gotta try this one. Thanks
You're welcome. Thank you! =D
