Making Pasta with a Pasta Machine Plus a Recipe

Updated on January 12, 2016
Source

I am the very proud owner of a pasta machine, which I have had for several years and is still as good as new.

My son and I were together all day today so we decided treat dad by making pasta, my son loves using the machine and it is actually very easy to make fresh pasta.

With a little practice and a few tips any hand pasta machine will make extremely delicious, lasagne, tagliatelle or spaghetti, which taste far better than any sold in packets.

My pasta machine is sturdy, made of stainless steel, and does exactly what it says on the box! I like manual ones because they are easier to control.

I have an electric one too but I never use it. I seem to get into a mess when I try to speed things up! My machine isn't sold on Amazon, it's too old, but the one I have picked out is very similar and gets many excellent reviews.

A pasta machine is standard kitchen equipment all over Italy. People make fresh pasta at the drop of a hat, most Sundays, and certainly during special occasions. I have wonderful memories of helping my Italian grandmother crank the handle of her pasta machine, which was exactly the same as those they sell today, apart from the motors some of them have!

Scroll down for my printable recipe for making pasta. We took some photos while we worked today and I have written some tips next to each one. The secret is to keep the dough dry so it doesn’t stick to the rollers. Here's a great easy tomato sauce recipe.

Pasta machines make wonderful gifts because they’re not too expensive, they last forever, and there is something very charming about them. To buy one just click on any Amazon product image you will be taken directly to Amazon.com.

The machine will do all the work for you. No need to knead!Here's the thickest setting - see how I've folded the pasta? I will pass it through this setting about 4 times. Folding it each time till it's smooth.Here it is going through the numbers getting thinner and longer each time. Cut it in half if it gets too long. Keep sprinkling flour if it seems damp.That's me showing you our fettucini / tagliatelle. Simply take the handle out of the roller and put it in the hole for the cutter. It's very simple.Here they are on a floured tray waiting for the pot! Keep them in a cool place. You can prepare these the night before if you want to.

I have picked a couple of examples of machines out because they get excellent reviews on Amazon. For example this machine gets hundreds of 4 and 5 stars Amazon reviews.

All you need to make this great dish is a pasta machine and unless you're going to make very large amounts of pasta there is absolutely no need to buy a motorizing attachment! 

I hope you enjoy making it as much as we did today.

  • Prep time: 45 min
  • Cook time: 5 min
  • Ready in: 50 min
  • Yields: 5

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 400 grams strong white flour + extra to use to keep the pasta from sticking to itself when it's made
  • 100 grams of fine semolina
  • salt - about half a teaspoon
  • Dribble of olive oil for extra flavor
Atlas Electric Pasta Machine, Silver with Motor Set
Atlas Electric Pasta Machine, Silver with Motor Set

Here's one with a motor in case you need it. I have never used a motor but I bet it would be quite a lot of fun! It gets excellent reviews on Amazon.

 

Instructions

  1. Mix the flour, semolina and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Make a hole in the middle of the flour mixture
  3. Crack in the eggs and a dribble of olive oil and start pulling in the flour round the eggs with a spoon or your fingers until all the mixture is incorporated into dough
  4. Place on a floured surface and roughly knead it into a very stiff dough ball - it should not be at all sticky. You don't have to knead it very much because the machine will do all that hard work for you. WRAP IN CLING FILM AND PLACE IN THE FRIDGE FOR 30 MINS
  5. After at least 30 mins place on a lightly floured surface and cut the dough into manageable size chunks.
  6. Set the roller part of the machine to it's largest setting - the rollers should be the furthest apart. Usually number 1. Roll the ball of dough through. Fold and repeat. Do this a few times until the dough is nice and smooth. It may need more flour or a drop of water. You will have to play it by ear. The aim is to have a nice smooth thick piece of dry pasta.
  7. Turn the dial one notch at the time so that the rollers get closer together very slightly. Don't skip any number. Do not fold the dough any more just roll it through once.
  8. Change the setting again and roll. Repeat this till the sheet is as thin as you like it. I do mine till number 7 and my machine has 9 numbers - 9 being the thinnest.
  9. Now you're ready to cut the sheets into either tagliatelle or spaghetti. Just carefully roll the pasta through in the same way. Don't pull it just let the roller pass it through.
  10. Place the cut pasta on a floured tray. Separate the strands as much as you can and flour them. They must not stick together.
  11. Keep in a cool place until you are ready to cook them.
  12. Cook in a large pot of salted boiled water for a few minutes - they will start to float. Do not overcook them. They should be 'al dente', meaning they should have a bite to them.
  13. Add your favorite homemade sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and fresh pepper.

Serve with a side salad and a nice glass of red wine! Buon apetito!

      If I didn't have severe arthritis, I think I'd like to have one of these machines. Homemade pasta isn't really something we do in the US. I bet it tastes much better than the packaged stuff we buy.

      @sierradawn lm: Good idea to involve the guests with making the pasta! made a delicious pasta dish for Boxing day. I'm going to make a lens about it tomorrow. Pansotti with Salsa di Noce. Is its official Italian name! Large vegetarian ravioli is the closest description. With a walnut sauce. Yummy! Thanks for your visit and for your comment.

      @calconcrete: That's a very good point Patrick, no matter how hard I try I always seem to make too much! No don't add oil. You can freeze it. Take the spaghetti and roll it lightly into little nests and put them in the freezer on a tray and wait for them to completely freeze. You can store them in an airtight container and keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months. You should cook them from frozen so they may need a little more time to cook. Hope that helps. Thanks for your question.

      @getupandgrow: This is a very good question, and something I completely forgot to mention! They are easy to clean because they shouldn't get sticky. They get dusty with flour. The dough must be as dry as you can make it without it crumbling or falling apart. So it should never stick to the mechanism of the machine. The flour will keep it dry.I do two things - before starting I take a small piece of dough and pass it through the rollers and cutter and then throw it away. And when I've finished making the pasta I give it a brush with a toothbrush I have just for this purpose. Then I wipe it with a damp cloth and dry it. It is shiny because I don't wet it. I hope that answers your question. Thanks very much for asking it.

Should I be using more olive oil or ??Patrick

Or does she roll them with a stuffing as you would with Canneloni? I'd love to know. Why not make a lens about it? I'm going to make ravioli for Christmas eve. That will make a good new lens I think!

      I always let my pasta rest for half an hour to an hour after I mix it, before I section it to roll out. Wrapped in plastic in the fridge resting, the flour has time to fully hydrate thereby making rolling out easier. Congrats...

The quantity of pasta in my recipe will be enough for 2 people even if you mess up the first ball of dough completely! So practice on the first one and you'll be an expert by dough ball two! Good luck let me know how you get on.

      This is something I've always wanted to do, but still haven't. You made it look easy, thanks.

      @ForGoodPeople: These are great pasta machines. As I say the pasta is much more delicious than the dried stuff. Thanks for your visit and for leaving a comment.
