Fresh Pasta Dough

How to make fresh pasta dough

Coming from an Italian heritage pasta is always on the menu. When it is a special occasion ravioli, cannelloni and the like are seen on the food table. Just before Easter time in the summer months we make fresh passata (Homemade tomato sauce) a tradition that will stay in our family for years to come. On Easter Sunday, my family of 30+ get together and celebrate family with good italian food. Making fresh Ravioli or Lasagna is always served best with our homemade Passata and a good bottle of Nonno’s homemade red wine.

  1. Place flour in large glass bowl and form a well in the middle.

  4. Pour mixture onto a floured board and knead until tight and glossy. It should be difficult to mix, to a point where no more flour will stay into mixture.
