Although I normally donít cook, every once in a while I get a craving too strong to ignore. I tried my hand at making my own pasta and it was so good that I made it again the next night!



I blended a few different recipes together for this pasta and I think itís perfect. The ingredients are so basic and it doesnít require any fancy equipment! I used my 20 year old mixer from my momma with the dough beaters, but I think you could do a great job with just your fingers. On the other hand, if you happen to have a food processor or a pasta press (or even a rolling pin, to give you an idea of how bare-bones my kitchen is) I wouldnít think twice about using that!

Another benefit to this recipe over other pastas Iíve seen is that you donít need any eggs.


The pasta is incredibly filling, so one batch will happily feed two hungry diners! Expect the process to take about 30-45 minutes.

Easy Fresh Pasta

1 C semolina flour

1 C white flour

1 Tbs olive oil

3/4 C warm water

2 tsp rosemary-herb blend

dash of salt


In your nice big bowl mix together all the dry ingredients at low speed. Drizzle in the oil and water, mixing as you pour. The dough will form big chunks, and there shouldnít be any loose flour in the bowl. Once the dough is holding together, use your dry hands to form it into a ball. The dough will be springy and your hand will leave an impression, but the dough shouldnít be sticky at all! Knead the dough a few times, and go ahead and start boiling your water.


To form the pastas, pinch of a little bit of dough and roll it between your hands. You donít want the roll to be too thick, or else the pasta will never cook! The rolls should be about 1/4″ thick and a few inches long; theyíll look kinda like worms. We took half of our wormies and rolled them into spirals, but thatís totally optional. It can take a bit of time and some muscle to roll all your pasta, so this is a great step for everyone to help with! Involvement in the process will also make all of your diners enjoy their meal so much more.


When youíve got all of your pasta rolled out, add it to the boiling water. The pasta will appear to clump together when you add it in the water, but just stir it up and it will separate. Fresh pasta cooks way faster than dried pasta, but since these noodles are so thick youíre still looking at about 10 minutes.


This goes great with an olive oil sauce, maybe with some sauteed onions and mushrooms. I think pesto would be absolutely perfect, and Jason really liked it with marinara.

Two years later, I finally tried this!  Super yummy and oh so easy!  I rolled the first few by hand... then rolled out the rest with my rolling pin and cut out noodle shapes. Smiley

That's how I do it now also, unless I'm having a pasta-rolling party (which is rare!). Maybe I'll make pasta for dinner this week; it's been months since I have!
