How to make pasta video

Ever wanted to make your own pasta? The Good Food cookery team show you how to make your own dough and use a pasta machine with confidence.

Points to remember

  • Place '00' flour in a food processor and add eggs.
  • Pulse until the mixture forms pea size clumps.
  • Tip the mix onto a work surface and knead lightly to make a smooth dough. Wrap tightly in clingfilm and rest for 20 mins at room temperature.
  • Feed through a pasta machine, working from the widest to narrowest setting. For tagliatelle, or pasta that is thin, stop at the second to last setting on the machine, then cut as desired.
  • For papardelle, lasagne, ravioli or pasta that is quite wide, roll the pasta to the thinnest setting.
  • The pasta can now be left to air dry before use.
