  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Double 0 Flour (00)
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil

Instructions
 

How To Make The Fresh Pasta

  • You could use your hands and a large cutting board or bowl to combine the pasta ingredients or use a food processor.

Using Your Hands' Method:

  • Combine the flour, or just use 4 cups of all-purpose flour. Make a well out of the flour and place the eggs in the middle along with the olive oil, plus 1/2 teaspoon to 1 tsp of sea salt. Mix together into a ball. 
  • Keep working the dough until it becomes smooth. 7 to 12 minutes. Everyone works at different speeds. We are working on the dough to create the gluten strands. 
    Once finished the dough should be smooth

Use The Food Processor Method:

  • Add flour + Salt, then 2 eggs and turn the machine on. Then add the last 2 eggs one at a time and allow the dough to come together, then add the olive oil.
  • Keep working the dough until it becomes smooth. 7 to 12 minutes. Everyone works are different speeds. We are working the dough to create the gluten strands. 
    Once finished the dough should be smooth
  • Rest the dough for 30 minutes, wrapped in her refrigerator. 
  • Watch the video below to learn how to roll out pasta dough...
  • Cook pasta in boiling water with enough salt in the water that it tastes just like the ocean. 
    Chef Tip: Fresh pasta cooks really quickly. Depending on the cut you choose for your pasta, the average cook time is 90 seconds. 
  • Make your pasta whichever way you like and add it to the Romesco sauce as soon as it comes out of the boiling water. You must marry the sauce and pasta together at this moment. NO waiting, :)  If the sauce is too thick you can add some of the pasta water to control the texture.
