Easy Homemade Fresh Pasta

Recommended Posts

I just thought I would share this gluten free pasta recipe I got from one of Bette Hagman's books since it has brought so much joy to my life lately! I never thought I could make fresh pasta (let alone gluten free!) but it is as easy as mix, roll out, slice and boil. There is no drying involved. Simply boil for 5 minutes or freeze the fresh dough for later use. I have made fettuccine and manicotti (yum!).

Easy Homemade Fresh Pasta

On Recipezaar: http://www.recipezaar.com/292555

Ingredients

1/3 cup garbanzo flour (or garfava flour - Bob's Red Mill, I order this from a local health store)

1/3 cup tapioca starch (also called Tapioca Flour)

1/3 cup cornstarch

2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 egg

Directions

1. In a medium sized bowl use a wire whisk to thoroughly mix together flours, xanthan gum and salt.

2. In a small bowl whisk together oil and eggs and pour into flour mixture.

3. Mix until it forms a ball. Be sure to scrape the sides mixing in all crumbs that may be left on the bottom. Dough will be a bit sticky.

4. Liberally sprinkle a pastry cloth, rolling pin and your hands with cornstarch. Knead dough about 20 times, adding cornstarch to cloth and hands as needed. Dough will be a bit tough.

5. Roll out dough on a pastry cloth until it is very thin, reapplying cornstarch to rolling pin and top of dough as needed. This part does require some muscle, dough should almost cover an entire standard sized pastry cloth.

6. Using a knife or pizza cutter cut into desired pasta shapes. Thin strips for spaghetti, thicker for fettuccine or cut into 2x6 squares for lasagna (I have even made manicotti by cutting squares and rolling them into large tubes and sealing the ends together by wetting the end slightly and pressing hard. Don't worry if they do not seal perfectly or if they tear a little, they will still work!).

7. Add pasta to boiling salted water with a few drops of oil. Cook for 5-7 minutes. (You can also freeze pasta for later use).

(the shells will break a bit when filling, but it still comes out tasty!)

I hope you like it as much as we do! My husband loves it when I make this. It was my favorite thing to order at Outback. It's not the healthiest dish in the world, but it's delicious for a treat once and a while!
