There is no question about it, my KitchenAid is my favorite appliance in my kitchen! I have eliminated so many smaller gadgets from my kitchen as I’ve collected KitchenAid attachments and the pasta attachments are among my favorite. You can make pasta without a KitchenAid or other pasta maker but I know it’s more time consuming and difficult (but can be done).
Recently, my sister-in-law came over and we decided to make a few batches of whole wheat pasta. I made pasta only one or two other times so we thought making some together would be fun. I used my KitchenAid, KitchenAid Pasta-Roller Attachment and KitchenAid Pasta Cutter Attachment (set to cut a more Angel Hair size) for this batch of pasta.
We tried one recipe and it was a complete flop. It was so dry and crumbly that we had to toss it. We found this recipe and it was so much easier to work with and tastes wonderful!
- 2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1 teaspoon Salt
In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Make a well in the flour mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and water. Pour egg mixture into the well of the flour mixture and mix well until a ball is formed. Place the dough on a floured board and knead for 20 turns. Wrap dough in wax paper and let rest for 30 minutes. Cut the dough into manageable sizes and either run through a pasta machine until smooth or roll out to desired thickness. Cut the pasta strips into desired shapes or run through a pasta cutter.
Let the pasta dry completely and store in an air tight container or let the pasta partially dry, twist into a nest, place in an air tight container and freeze. We made two or three batches of the recipe but we did not double it as sometimes, pasta dough recipes can be sensitive.
