Equipment

  • KitchenAid stand mixer with spaghetti pasta attatchment

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • First, spread the flour out on a clean surface. Make a well in the middle (so it looks like the mouth of a volcano), and add the eggs, salt and olive oil to the well.With a fork or small whisk, begin to break up the eggs, while slowly starting to add more and more flour from the walls of the well.
  • Continue to add more and more flour until there is no more left to add, then begin to knead the dough with your hands. It will start out very dry and flakey, but continue to knead the dough for at least 8 minutes and it will slowly start to stick together more. Form the dough into a ball, then cut it into 4-6 equal sized pieces (small enough to fit into your pasta attachment).
  • Attach the spaghetti attachment to the pasta presser, and securely attach the pasta presser to the KitchenAid stand mixer. Start the mixer on low, and begin to carefully feed the dough into the hole at the top. When the spaghetti noodles begin to come out of the pasta presser, allow them to get to the desired length before slicing them off (most pasta attachments have a built in slicer).
  • Once sliced, hang them on your pasta hanger (or coat hanger) and continue to feed the dough through the pasta press until you are all done.
  • TO COOK THAT DAY: If you are going to cook it within the next couple of hours, lay the pasta on a plate and cover with a damp paper towel to prevent it from drying out. When ready to cook, toss them in a salted pot of boiling water and cook until desired doneness, which for me was 4 minutes.
  • TO FREEZE: When your pasta is done being made, lay it on a baking sheet in the shape that you want to freeze it in. Allow it to dry out for 15 minutes, then transfer it to an airtight freezable bag and press out all of the air in the bag. You can store your fresh pasta in the freezer for up to one month!
