If you wanted to make whole wheat pasta, would you just substitute the white flour for wheat flour?

Awesome post, you've inspired me to try this out sometime.

I don't know? Undecided  buuuuuuut I sure want to try it!  If you try it make sure and let us all know how it is Wink  I would think it would be the same...maybe just a bit more cooking time? I bet it would taste delicious Grin

This is correct. You may also want to add a few drops (really, like a teaspoon) of water to the mix.

You can also use water as a substitute for eggs. So really, if you wanted you could use 2-3 eggs and finish off by gradually adding water to get to the right consistency. You could even omit the eggs all together and use all oil and water if you are vegan. I have a ton of pasta recipes.  Wink

  can you use just regular wheat flour?  how does the homemade pasta taste without the egg?  I wonder if one used a spicy oil as the binder how it would taste?  yummmmmmmm

Yeah, you can use regular wheat flour. It does taste a little different without the egg, but not bad. and since you will most likely be putting some form of sauce on it or filler in it, the difference is inconsequential.

Honestly, I doubt you would notice the difference if you used spicy oil. My rule of thumb is, use flavored oils for garnishes, not cooking. Cooking will destroy the flavor of most oils. I never got why, when watching cooking shows, they insist on cooking certain things with olive oil. To look fancy I guess, because heat destroys the flavor of the oil. You might as well save the good stuff and use cheap ole veggie/canola oil for cooking. Now, if you tossed the cooked pasta in the spicy oil, I'd bet that would be wicked good.

I may have to try this! I make my own bread every week. I can't stand even the smell of store bought bread. I've spoiled myself and my family! This may be the start of never buying pasta again...
BTW, if you want some good vegetarian recipes with plenty of protein, I have some that I've made up. Even the kids like them.

  I say I agree with the use of spicy oils and usually never cook with olive oil on any type of high heat..I don't get the cooking shows that do that either..Why? because I heard that when you heat olive oil to a certain point it turns carcinogenic. So I avoid.  I did use a bit in the pasta....extra virgin and it was soooo good...the flavor was yummy!
Craftewomen...I would LOVE some veggie recipes!

That looks great!  I have never made my own pasta before, but I am super-interested in the possibility of making my own without EGGS.  Somehow it seems to me that it would just kinda fall apart though!  How much oil/water should I use per missing egg?  Would the cooking time still be only a few minutes?  Thanks to anyone who replies.
