Pasta is one of the humblest of ingredients… so comforting, yet so simple. We invited Michela and Romina from the Chiappa Sisters down to show us their secrets to making awesome pasta. Done properly… there is very little in this world that beats fresh, handmade pasta.

    Unless it's ravioli or tortellini I prefer to use dry pasta; the fresh stuff takes on too much water and becomes heavy I find

    Tip #1 – use more yolks than whole eggs. It will be better. Much better. I always use 7 yolks and 6 whole eggs.
    Tip #2 – use a food processor to combine the dough
    Tip #3 – Don't need salt. There should be PLENTY in your water.
    Tip #4 – Add some semolina directly to your pasta dough mixture. It adds a bit more "bite" to your pasta.
    Tip #5 – pulse in food processor until you get a fine bread crumb consistency. Dump it and combine with your hands. You DON'T want a sticky dough unless you plan on cooking straight away. If you want to store for later and you have a sticky dough too bad. The noodles will stick badly.
    Tip #6 – Let the dough rest for 2-3 hours at room temp. You won't BELIEVE how much easier it is to work with.

    Source? I have been making home made pasta at an Italian Restaurant for almost 4 months now. After 1,000 "nests" of fettuccine and spaghetti you start to learn a few things. 😉 Not to speak of the ravioli and gnocchi I also make.

    My recipe?

    6 large whole eggs
    7 yolks from large eggs
    1/2 cup semolina
    "roughly" 5 cups AP flour
    Pulse in large food processor until you get a consistency of small bread crumbs. Add more AP flour as needed to achieve that consistency.
    Combine mixture with your hands
    Wrap in plastic wrap for 2-3 hours at room temp
    Make pasta!

    salting your pasta water is key, my old head chef always said that the water must be as salty as sea water.

    What's the amount of olive oil to use in this? Or is this recipe only eggs and flour? Also, could I use semolina flour in my pasta rather than all-purpose?

  15. @SparkyMTB

    Pasta Tip:-
    Add about a tablespoon of oil to your boiling water before you add the pasta to stop the pasta from sticking together 🙂

    So the minimum time for storing/resting the pasta dough is 30 minutes, but what is the maximum? Hours, days, weeks? How long does the dough last in the fridge before you gotta throw it out? Thx 🙂

    Why does pasta have different names just because it has a different shape? It all tastes the same lol.
