  • Pasta dough is easy!

    Get a blend of whole-grain flours and put about 2 cups on your work board. Make a well and add 3 whole eggs. Begin beating the eggs into the flour with a fork until the dough starts to ball up. Knead it lightly and let it rest at least 15 minutes before shaping it in the pasta machine.

    If you are making gluten-free pasta, use equal parts gluten-free flour blend and fine meal rice bran.
