Homemade Pasta using Ancient Grains
Easy enough to make on a weeknight!
In a large bowl, mix together the flour & salt & make a well in the center
Add the eggs to the center & whisk together using a fork
Slowly incorporate the flour a little at a time until the dough starts coming together. Turn it out on your work surface
Start kneading your dough & slowly use just enough flour so that your dough no longer sticks to the surface. (you will probably have extra flour on the side - easier to see in the video below)
Knead the dough for 10 min
Wrap dough in plastic & let it sit on the counter for 30 min
After resting period, Divide dough into 4-5 equal parts (doesn't have to be perfect) & start rolling it out always using the widest setting first. Note: make sure you have a bit of flour on your dough to prevent sticking in your machine
Gradually go from widest setting (7) to thinnest setting (1)
On a floured surface (& lightly flour the dough sheet), roll up both ends to meet in the center. (See video)
Slice into desired width, roll back out & hang on pasta drying rack
With your water at a rapid boil, add 1/4C Salt & cook pasta for only about 2-3 min or when it starts coming floating on the surface.
Drain in colander or add directly to your sauce!
