Follow these steps to craft pasta perfection in your own kitchen:
- Select the Right Flour: Begin with high-quality, durum wheat semolina or all-purpose flour for the best results. Measure out your flour, typically one cup per serving.
- Egg or No Egg: Decide whether you want to make egg pasta or eggless pasta. For every 100 grams of flour, use one large egg.
- Knead the Dough: Using your Ankarsrum Stand Mixer with the dough roller attachment, combine the flour and eggs (if using). Knead the dough until it’s smooth and elastic. If it’s too sticky, add more flour; if it’s too dry, add a little water.
- Rest the Dough: Shape the dough into a ball, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rest for 30 minutes. This allows the gluten to relax, making the dough easier to roll out.
- Roll It Out: Use the Ankarsrum pasta roller attachment to flatten the dough. Start with the widest setting and gradually work your way to the desired thickness.
- Cut Your Pasta: With our Pasta Cutter attachments, you can create your preferred pasta shape, whether it’s fettuccine, spaghetti, or lasagnette. Enjoy the precision and convenience of our versatile tools.
- Cook to Perfection: Boil a large pot of salted water and cook your pasta for a few minutes until it’s al dente. Fresh homemade pasta cooks faster than dried pasta, so keep a close eye on it.
- Savor Your Creations: Once your pasta is cooked to perfection, pair it with your favorite sauce, such as a classic Bolognese, creamy Alfredo, or a simple garlic and olive oil drizzle. Garnish with fresh herbs and grated cheese for the finishing touch.
