So continue to sip your latte and enjoy making delicious homemade gourmet fresh pasta. You can even make it fancy in multiple colors.
Step 1: The staff of life - pasta
- All-purpose flour, can be organic or regular, whole wheat or not, bleached or unbleached, whatever you like
- optional - can also use semolina hard-durum flour (mix with equal parts of all-purpose flour) - It is a little harder to shop for but you can use only all-purpose flour. Premium pastas only use 100% semolina flour.
- eggs, white shell or brown, your preference
- optional - drop of oil, I've seen it in some recipes, doesn't really do much except if you add olive oil for some flavor/flavour
- a big bowl for mixing and kneading the ingredients.
- and a large working area if you are lucky.
