  • 150g Italian '00' flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 50g Semolina, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 free-range eggs


    1. Mix the semolina into the flour in a large bowl or on a clean surface.
    2. Make a dent in the centre a pour the eggs in.
    3. With your hands, bit by bit, mix the flour with the eggs until it forms a dough. If it is too dry, add a bit of water, if it is too sticky sprinkle on a bit of flour off semolina.
    4. Knead the dough until it is smooth (roughly five minutes).
    5. Shape the dough into a ball and wrap it in cling film. Chill in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes.
    6. Flour the pasta machine with semolina and divide the dough into 4 roughly equal pieces. At first on the thickest setting guide one piece at a time through the machine, turning the handle and holding it as it comes out.
    7. Keep changing the setting on the machine to the next thickest setting, feed the pieces through again. Repeat this around 3-4 more times making the setting thinner each time.
    8. Once the pasta is fairly thin- you can handle it without tearing- cut into strips and dust with semolina.
