  • Servings: 2 (large) servings
  • Calories: 685 calories per serving
  • Protein: 24g protein per serving
  • Fiber: 9g fiber per serving


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


  • 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.


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