My New Toy


Basic pasta Dough
(recipe adapted from the batter baker)

Ingredients:
1 cup plain flour
1 egg
1 tsp salt
drizzle of olive oil
water, as required

Method:

1.  Make a well in the middle of your bowl of flour.
 

2. Crack an egg into the well. Add salt & olive oil. Then slowly stir in the flour till a dough is formed.  If it feels too dry, add water till you get a firm but smooth dough.  Knead till it comes together.
Rest the dough for about 30 mins.

3. Flatten or roll out the dough into a disc, then feed it through the rollers at the widest setting. Slowly work your way through the narrower settings till you get the thickness you desire, flouring the dough as required so it doesn't stick to the machine.


4. Finally, feed it through fettuccine cutters, and you get beautiful fresh pasta.

i also felt like getting one months ago but then was told that it cant be washed, is that true?

Cathysjoy said...

Lena,
