Homemade Pasta? Yes Please!

I found this super easy and fun Pasta recipe on Pioneer Woman’s website! It had a step by step recipe that was so easy to follow! It’s so much fun to make with your kids! Let’s get started!

The recipe calls for only two ingredients!!!! Gotta Love that!!!

1 egg for every 1/2 cup of flour! That combo is the perfect amount per person so for our family of four I used 4 eggs and 2 cups flour!

Combine eggs and flour in large bowl and mix with your hands till you create a dough ball.Work the dough on a floured surface till it’s smooth and not tacky.

Separate your dough into manageable portions to roll out. I separated mine into two. Roll out the dough as thin as you can.

I used a pizza cutter to cut very thin straight strips.
Gently peel the strips off the cutting surface and collect on a plate.
Add cut pasta to a boiling pot of salted water and cook for approximately 2 min.

Drain and add your favorite pasta sauce!

Te Da!!! A super yummy, totally impressive, fun pasta dish!!! For reals guys! In the time it took the pot of water to boil we were ready to boil the noodles! This recipe is well worth the extra effort to make a snazzy meal your family will love! The kids loved being helpers and finding super long noodles to slurp!!! A new family hit!!!

    growing up italian, we always made our own pasta. eveyone did (we were in a highly italian neighborhood where some of the old folks still spoke broken english/italian). somewhere in the mid 1980s we started buying pasta and i have no idea why. i make it once in awhile and it is always better! enjoy!
