Fresh Pasta Recipe

This recipe makes very tender fresh pasta that is best cooked or frozen immediately. The texture makes it perfect for lasagna, ravioli, tortellini, and other applications where pasta needs to cut easily.

Roll it out with a rolling pin or pasta roller until very thin. This is a matter of taste or, if using a pasta roller, a matter of finding your favorite number setting.

Cut it into whatever shapes you would like. Cooking takes about 2-3 minutes in boiling water. When you place the pasta in the boiling water it will probably sink, and once it has floated to the top it’s ready. Fresh pasta cooks very quickly.

 

If you want to save extra you should either cook and refrigerate it, or freeze it uncooked. Egg pasta is very fragile when dried so it’s not the best choice for drying.
