Ingredients

  • 2 cups semolina flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 3/2 cup water

Instructions

  • Place flour and salt on a clean surface.
  • Mix warm water and flaxseed, wait a few minutes until the flaxseed gels up.
  • Make a small well in the pile of flour, pour the liquid in.
  • Mix and knead until it forms a firm dough.
  • Put the dough through a pasta roller several times, folding each time, until the dough is stretchy and comes out as a complete piece from the roller.
  • Use the pasta roller to thin the dough.
    • For spaghetti, go down to thickness 4 on the KitchenAid pasta roller attachment.
  • Coat the rolled dough in flour to prevent sticking.
  • Put the dough through the pasta cutter. As the pasta comes out, throw more flour on it to prevent sticking.
  • Put the pasta in boiling water, and cook until done.
    • For spaghetti, 3 minutes is sufficient.
  • Strain and wash the pasta with cold water to stop the cooking from the residual heat.

Notes

Replace water with blended down vegetables (spinach, carrot, beets) to give the pasta color.
