Homemade Whole Wheat Pasta
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 whole eggs, room temperature
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
Prepare pasta machine according to directions.
In a food processor, mix together the flours and salt until well combined. Add in the eggs and olive oil. Process for about 10 seconds, until the dough begins to crumble and then form a ball. If the dough seems too sticky, add 1 tbsp. of flour at a time, pulsing between each addition until you get a firm, but moist ball. If the dough seems to dry, add a bit of water to thin it out.
Now sprinkle some all-purpose flour on a blank counter space. Knead the dough, folding end to end and turning a quarter turn between each fold, 12-14 times. Now form a ball and let set at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Once dough has set, cut dough into 4 even pieces. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
Once all noodles are cut. Add them into the boiling water, again careful not to let the noodles all stick to each other. Once they begin to float at the top of sauce ater, they are done. This will only take 2-3 minutes. SO FAST!
Serve immediately with classic marinara sauce.
