Try This Quick & Easy Homemade Pasta Recipe

Just 3 Ingredients Required!

By LA Muscle on 27.03.2020 11:34 am


Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, panic buyers have been stripping the supermarkets bare and hoarding and bulk buying food items such as pasta. Even those trying to make their own pasta are struggling to get their hands on the ingredients, such as eggs and flour.

A new pasta recipe has gone viral and it's possible to make it without any eggs and very little flour.

According to the Manchester Evening News, one woman posted the recipe to a Facebook group, Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.

Giulia Stephanie posted: "If you are struggling for pasta but have in eggs, flour and salt you can always make homemade pasta!

"2 cups of PLAIN flour, 3 large eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of salt will make three small bowls or two large bowls of fresh pasta! Great fun to do and great if kids are off too."

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, Ms Stephanie said: "I’m Italian and it’s been passed down, we used to make it as kids.

"I believe you can do this with without eggs and substitute for 1/2cups of lukewarm water instead! I’ve never done it this way but good to know for those that can’t get eggs I guess!"

Here's how to make Giulia's recipe for simple yet authentic homemade pasta:

  • Add the Flour and salt to a mixing bowl and stir together (I used plain flour
  • Create a ‘well’ by pushing all the flour to the edge of the bowl and creating a space in the centre of the bowl
  • Add the three Large Eggs to the ‘well’
  • Whisk the eggs in the centre of the bowl- try not to bring in the flour at this point
  • Once the eggs are whisked start to pull the flour into the centre bit by bit. Take your time! The dough will gradually start to form but some flour may be left over (so don’t worry)
  • Empty the dough and remainder of flour in the bowl onto a table
  • Start kneading the dough, ideally for 20/30 min
  • If the dough is falling apart you can add a bit of water a teaspoon at a time. If it’s too wet add flour.
  • Once the dough feels smooth place it in a clean bowl and cover this for 30 min to let rest
  • After 30 min cut the dough into 3 sections and start to roll each section out. It needs to be quite thin so this may take a while if you don’t have a pasta machine. We just used a rolling pin and kept going at it.
  • Tagliatelle was made, which if you have a pasta machine can be quite quick. If you don’t have a pasta machine, use a rolling pin and you can also use a pizza cutter to make long strands.
  • When you can’t get some strands thin you can cut them out first and then roll them again.

*You can also cut the dough into little squares and pinch them in the middle to make bows if you prefer this*

To cook the pasta:

  • Boil a pan of water and add salt to taste
  • When boiling add a drop of oil to the water (this will stop the pasta sticking)
  • Add pasta to water and stir every so often to stop this sticking. To transfer the pasta to the water a long skewer works best
  • Cook for 10-15 min on a medium heat
  • Once cooked drain and serve straight away with a sauce of your choosing
