Cook Time
  1. Heat on stove 1 cup water, just till warm.
  2. On a large, flat, clean surface place a handful of semolina flour, aprox 3/4 cup.
  3. In a large mixing bowl measure out aprox 4 cups of flour and salt. When water is warm add slowly to flour and begin mixing by hand. Once a firm ball is formed transfer dough onto work surface.
  4. Knead dough aprox 10 minutes till smooth but firm. Add more flour or water as needed.
  5. Below is instructions for macaroni style pasta. However this dough could be used for any pasta.
  6. Once kneaded break dough in half. Roll dough into ball and then into thick tube.
  7. Cut off an inch of dough. Roll into little ball, then into a 3″ tube. Press wire into dough and using two hands begin rolling out dough.
  8. Roll dough along tube until about 8″ in length.
  9. Push noodle off wire onto floured surface. If your noodle bunches up after pushing it off wire it can be quickly but gently extended. This happened because dough is too soft & needs more flour.
  10. You can either let them dry out or cook them right away. In either case, fresh pasta requires very little time to cook, aprox 3 minutes. Test how al dente they are before removing from boiling water.
  11. You can cook the pasta in batches using forked spoon or a wire spider to remove pasta. Place cooked pasta in a large serving bowl, add a few paddles of sauce before serving. Top w hard cheese and spicy chilli if desired
Recipe Notes

This recipe yields 1000 grams of prepared pasta. It will feed 4 persons as a meal or 6 persons if it’s the first course.

Don’t worry about your first time making them, they’re a bit tricky getting used to but after the first dozen you’ll get a better feel for the dough. Try using one hand if two doesn’t seem to be working right. Avoid placing the dough in the centre of the wire but more to one side or the other.
