How to Make Homemade Pasta Noodles With Recipes and Sauces

Updated on August 1, 2022

Homemade pasta is so easy to make, and it can make a big difference to your pasta dishes. Once you learn how to make pasta, you will never want to repurchase the dried stuff. Here you will find all you need to know on how to make an easy pasta without a pasta machine and two unique sauces to go with it.

Homemade Spaghetti

3 c Flour

4 Eggs

2 tsp Olive Oil

1/2 tsp Salt

3 tsp Water

Step 1

Dump the flour out on a clean work surface. Use your hand to create a well in the flour. Crack your eggs into the well. Add olive oil and salt to the eggs.

Step 2

Take some of the flour from the walls of the well into the eggs and gently begin mixing the flour into the eggs. Slowly mix more of the flour into the eggs. After a few, most of the flour should be integrated into the egg, and the dough will be somewhat crumbly. Knead the dough and try to get the rest of the flour incorporated. If you can't, in the remaining flour, drizzle 1 tsp of water on the dough and knead it for another minute or so. Add water 1 tsp until the flour is all mixed in.


Step 3

Knead the dough. It will form into a nice ball. If the ball sticks to the work surface or your hands, then sprinkle a bit of flour on the surface. Knead the dough for a good ten minutes or so.


Step 4

Divide your ball into quarters. Sprinkle flour on your work surface flour and flatten one of the balls out with your hand. Use a rolling pin to roll it out. Try and keep the pasta sheet as rectangular as you can. It will take some work to get it rolled out. When you cook the pasta, it will get about 50% thicker than it is now. Keep that in mind when you think that the pasta is thin enough. If your dough is not shaped right, you can use a knife and trim the sides down.


Step 5

Sprinkle both sides of the pasta with flour and loosely roll around the rolling pin. Remove the rolling pin and cut thin strips of pasta. After cutting, unroll, then sprinkle with a bit more flour.


Step 6

Hang your pasta to dry this can be done with chopsticks, hangers, a pasta rack, or anything you can find around the house you would eat from. Let dry for an hour or so.
