Homemade tagliatelle recipe

Handmade tagliatelle

Serves 2

2 eggs

200 grams of 00 flour (or 180 grams of 00 flour and 20 g of semolina flour)

Procedure for tagliatelle

On a work surface put the flour. Create a well in center.

Put the eggs in the middle of the flour.

Carefully beat eggs with a fork and mix gradually with the flour, stirring from the outside in, to avoid breaking the flour “bowl”.

Knead dough, adding a little flour as necessary until it’s smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.

Cover or wrap in cling film; let rest for at least 5 minutes.

Divide the dough into two or three parts.

Roll each part as thin as you can using your rolling pin.

Flatten each part into a rectangle (cover others with a towel).

Starting with a small rectangle of dough, run it through your pasta maker at the largest setting, #1. Once it comes out, dust lightly with flour.

Run it through the machine again on the same setting, then turn the setting to 2.

Decrease setting one notch and roll pasta through again; repeat, decreasing setting by one notch each time.

Proceed to pull until No. 5 (if you like thin pasta, you can proceed until No.6). Dust the dough with semolina or flour every time you change the thickness.

Sprinkle sheet with flour. Repeat with remaining dough.

Allow the sheets to dry before cutting (they will have the consistency of a cardboard – they will fold but do not break).

Roll the pasta sheets on themsleves, cut the width you prefer or – like I did – use the cutting tool.

Give your tagliatelle a nest-like shape and lay on a tray.
