The following basic pasta recipe can be used to as the base to create your own special pasta recipes, or try one of the other homemade pasta recipes in this page. By making your own pasta, you know it is fresh and healthy!

Use the basic pasta recipe as a
base for making your own

Basic Pasta Recipe


  • 3 cups semolina flour or all-purpose white flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of water--only if necessary for dough consistency
  1. Add flour and eggs to the stand mixer bowl.
  2. Using a flat beater on speed 2, mix until the dough combines.
  3. Change to the dough hook and mix for 30 seconds to 1 minutes, until the dough forms a ball.
  4. Cut the dough ball into fourths.
  5. Use the pasta roller attachment set* at the widest setting and roll the dough out.
  6. Fold the dough and put it through the pasta roller until the dough is smooth.
  7. Change the pasta roller for the pasta cutter. Set the cutter for the pasta size you want and put the sheet of dough through it.

When cooking the pasta, be careful not to overcook. It will only need to cook 3 to 4 minutes. Serve with the pasta sauce of your choice!

* If you don't have a pasta attachment, roll out very thin, then cut into narrow slices. Cook as above.
