 Homemade Fresh Pasta

How to make Fettuccine Noodles

 Out of the blue this afternoon I decide I am in the mood for some fresh pasta. I’ve made fresh pasta a few times in the past. I have also made fresh homemade ravioli. I love my homemade ravioli filled with homemade ricotta cheese.

Just last week I hoisted my Altea lusso 160 up onto the top shelf in my laundry room to get it out of the way for my holiday baking. The minute I slid it onto the top shelf I thought to myself…..what if I decide to make ravioli? I shook my head and thought I will not be making any ravioli in the next week. What with Christmas baking and dinner to prepare.
Oh by the way I bought the pasta machine at the local Goodwill for $10 about eight years ago. It was the best ten bucks I ever spent.

 So here we are making homemade Alfredo noodles. I can blame it on the Food Network. I was watching something on there today with Alfredo noodles and thought to myself I need to make some homemade Fettuccine Alfredo. So here we are. it was late in the day when I started so I made the Alfredo noodles and put them in the fridge. I will be making broccoli fettuccine Alfredo for lunch tomorrow.

I used my Kitchenaid mixer and let it do all the hard work. If you don’t have a Kitchen Aid mixer you can do it by hand. Normally I would do all the kneading by hand. I love to knead dough by hand. I guess I am old fashioned when it comes to kneading. I enjoy the process of making pasta and bread from scratch, feeling the dough come together.

Homemade Pasta Recipe

Ingredients
  •  2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
Placed all the ingredients into a kitchen aid mixer bowl.
On the lowest setting allow the machine to mix the flour into the wet ingredients.
Remove the dough from the mixer bowl and form a ball.
Place the dough back into the bowl and cover with a damp towel.
Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes cut the ball of pasta dough into 8 equal sized pieces.
Return all but one section of pasta dough to the bowl and cover with a damp towel.
Flour the piece of dough and begin kneading it on the widest setting of the pasta machine, gradually working the dough down to the #4 or #5 setting on the pasta machine.
Cut the kneaded dough piece into thin strips of fettuccine.
Lay the pieces of fettuccine pasta on a floured cookie sheet.
Repeat until all of the pasta dough has been kneaded and cut into noodles.

    I'd love to have a pasta maker… unfortunately, I probably won't have one until I'm married, which won't be for a while…I suppose I'll have to figure out a way to do it by hand. :) thanks for sharing though.
