Basic Recipe for Pasta

You really have to try this out! Fresh pasta is one of my favourites. And it takes less time than you might think ;-)

Makes 4 portions.

For the pasta dough:
2 2/3 cup coarse-grained wheat flour
1/2 + 2 tbsp. water
4 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
1 pinch curcuma

In a mixing bowl mix together coarse-grained wheat flour, salt and curcuma. Add water and oil and mix everything with a wooden spoon.

Put the dough crumbs on a worktop and knead about 10-15 minutes until the dough is finely solid. Put the dough into clear film and put that in a airtight box. Let it rest for at least one hour.

Sprinkle some wheat flour on your worktop and roll out the dough very thin. To make it a little easier split the dough into two parts. The dough is very solid and it needs some strength. If you have a pasta machine it will be a lot easier.

Again sprinkle the pasta dough with flour and roll it. Then cut off fine stripes. Cook the pasta at a rolling boil for about 3 minutes until they are firm to the bite.
