Fresh Pasta

Recommended Posts

Last night we had gluten-free spaghetti fresh out of a pasta maker. It was great. :D I used a pasta recipe from "The Gluten-Free Italian Cookbook" by Mary Capone ( http://www.wheatfreegourmet.com/index.htm ). My SIL lent us her (unused) pasta maker. I won't add the brand except to say I expected a pocket fisherman attachment on it. We had to add a bit more tapioca flour to the recipe for the pasta maker, but it was quick and the pasta taste and texture were great. I sent the info to a friend whose DIL doesn't want to try gluten-free for their autistic kids because she loves Italian food so much (another excuse is the kids would be back to where they started if they get glutened).

Thanks for the post! I haven't had the need to try gluten-free pasta because tinkyada tastes just perfect to me, but I have wanted to try homemade gluten free chicken noodles. My husband loves them. I was wondering if they would work homemade with a pasta maker or if they wouldn't stick together right. I'll have to try them :-)

I tried my pasta maker with one recipe, but the noodles were too stiff. The next time I made them, though I must have had a little less flour as I think it would have worked in the pasta maker (I was making chicken noodle soup, so I just cut them by hand) I wish I could have gotten to the recipe without buying the book...oh well, I guess I will add it to my list. :)

You could contact them at the (above) website and ask for the recipe. I liked the book because it included some of the science and reasons behind recipes. Such as the pasta needs to have a texture like silly putty before it is rolled or extruded. It is my first pasta experience, so I may have had some beginners luck, too. When we made the batch it was too sticky so added tapioca starch until it looked right. It went into the pasta water and stuck together minimally. I was able to coax the strands apart, rather than being stern about it.
