About: An Italian living in China with a passion for cooking. I grew up in a picturesque town called Lecce nestled on the “heel of the boot”, Italy’s southern tip, between the Adriatic and Ionian se…
Last Sunday morning to inaugurate my new pasta machine I have decided to make some tagliatelle. Homemade pasta is very easy to make, all you need is semolina flour, eggs and of course a pasta machine! This recipe is my grandma's one so THE ORIGINAL ITALIAN HOME MADE PASTA RECIPE, cause yeah, I'm Italian the real Italian not like those fake Jersey Show ppl ;)

Step 1: Ingredients (for 2 Servings)

  • 200 g semolina flour (1 and 1/2 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • salt

Step 2: Step One: Mix the Ingredients

Place the four in a mound creating a well in the center where you will add salt and pour in the slightly beaten eggs.Slowly pull the flour into the eggs until is all incorporated. Knead the dough by hand adding more flour on the surface.

Step 3: Step 2: Rest

Let the dough rest for about 30 min. Don't put it in the fridge!

Step 4: Step 3: Let's Press It

Take a little piece of dough and start pressing it using your pasta machine at no.1
Keep pressing the dough making it thinner each time by moving to no 2, then 3 and finally 4

Step 5: Step 4: Let's Noddle It!

Now insert the dough into the tagliatelle section and start rolling out your tagliatelle!

Step 6: Step 5: Let's Boil It!

Your homemade tagliatelle are now ready! Place them on a tray covered with flour so they wont stick to each other. Remember when you boil your homemade pasta to drop a couple of spoons of olive oil in the water so they wont stick together. This is necessary only for homemade pasta.
