Our zero-waste kitchen: homemade pasta

Our zero-waste kitchen: homemade pasta

Have you ever thought of how pasta is made? It is one of those things we just always buy at the store semi-ready, or even premade in some cases. 

And it makes sense, it is quite time-consuming. But since time is one of the things we have extra of lately, we decided to give homemade pasta a try. Warning! We don’t have a pasta machine, but that didn’t stop us! 

The recipe is super simple, for every serving you need an egg and 100 gr of flour, so for 2 people we used 2 eggs and 200 gr of flour. 

Instructions: 

  1. On a clean surface, make a volcano shape pile.
  2. Crack the eggs inside the hole of your volcano. 
  3. Beat the eggs with a fork and gradually add some of the flour. 
  4. With your hands keep adding flour from the sides to the center and mix into the dough. 
  5. Knead the dough until even and not sticky (add a little olive oil if too dry).
  6. Roll the dough out, you want to do this various times, folding the dough and rolling it out again, until smooth and even. 
  7. Cut the dough in even pieces (or at least try), we made unperfect noodles. 
  8. Once cut dust with flour and make sure they don’t stick. 
  9. Cook in boiling water for about 5 minutes (depending on the thickness). 

Next time we want to go all out and try to make ravioli, let’s see if we can manage! 

This recipe is a great way to get your hands dirty and to avoid buying pasta in plastic packaging, now that buying in bulk might be more of a challenge.
