Easy Homemade Pasta

  • 1 1/4 cup flour * (150 g) gluten-free*, if needed
  • 1 cup semolina flour (150 g) or sub more regular flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup water 150 ml
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Spinach Pasta (Option)

  • 3 oz spinach (80 g) fresh or frozen


Easy Homemade Pasta

    Make the dough

    • Mix the flour, semolina and salt in a bowl. Create a well. Pour in water and olive oil, mix together until well combined.
    • Transfer to a working surface and knead to a smooth and soft dough, about 8-10 minutes. (Add more flour if the dough is too wet, add more water, if too dry).
    • Form to a ball, wrap in cling foil and let chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour.

    Cut Pasta (see step-by-step pictures in the text above)

    • After the dough has refrigerated, cut into 2 equal portions.
    • Place 1 portion on a floured working surface and thinly roll it out using a rolling pin (or pasta machine, if you have one).
    • Dust with more flour (to prevent sticking) and loosely roll it up. Use a very sharp knife and cut the roll into strips. Use your fingers to unfurl the noodles and lay them loosely into several bundles to create noodle nests.
    • Continue same process with the next dough portion.
    • To cook, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Serve with your favorite pesto or sauce and enjoy! ?

    To make Spinach Pasta (optional)

    • Cook fresh spinach until wilted, about 1-2 minutes (or defrost frozen spinach). Then squeeze and blend along with about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of water. Use this spinach mixture instead of only water in step 1 (make the dough) and continue with the recipe!


    • To make the pasta dough, you can use all-purpose flour, spelt flour or a gluten-free flour blend. When making gluten-free pasta, I recommend to add additionally a flax-egg (stir 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds + 3 tbsp water – allow to thicken for 2 minutes).
    • When making a pasta bake, such as lasagna, there’s no need to boil the fresh noodles. Just add them directly to your recipe.
    • To freeze fresh uncooked pasta, place the noodle nests on a floured baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours. Then, you can transfer to a freezer bag. To cook, put them straight into boiling water, no need to defrost.
