Homemade Pasta with KitchenAid & Giveaway

Share Button

It’s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of KitchenAid Canada, our entire kitchen seems to have a KitchenAid product at every turn and hey, I’m not ashamed. Last year when I attended the KitchenAid Canada Attachment event with Chef Lynn Crawford we had the pleasure of cooking along side this amazing Chef and glean some tips and tricks.

The one attachment which I was most interested in was the Pasta Roller & Cutter Attachment Set. I’ve always been intimidated to attempt homemade pasta but after seeing Chef Lynn use the attachments I realized how easy it actually is.

The recipe for pasta I’m showing here is adapted slightly from the recipe which is included in the Pasta Roller & Cutter Attachment set handbook. I found that I need more water than is called for, I reflect within the recipe below.

Homemade Pasta with KitchenAid

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • extra flour for dusting
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons water

PREPARATION

Attach the flat beater to the stand mixer and place the flour, salt, eggs and water (begin with 1/2 tablespoon and increase as needed) into the mixing bowl. Turn mixer to speed 2 and mix until they are well combined.

Remove flat beater and attach the dough hook, knead for 3-4 minutes, or until dough indents when you touch it. Cover dough with saran wrap and let it rest for approximately 20 minutes.

Dust your hands with flour and knead the dough for a few minutes. Cut the dough into 4 pieces and mold each into flat rectangle shapes and dust with flour. Take one piece and cover the others with a tea towel while you work with the first to keep them moist.

Attach the pasta roller to your stand mixer, set the roller to #1 and turn on your mixer to speed #2 and run the pasta through the roller.

Once you’re at the desired thickness, dust in flour, fold the pasta up gently and cover with a tea towel while you repeat the process for the remaining 3 pieces of dough.

Once you’ve rolled out all of the pasta, cover it again and remove the roller attachment and attach the fettuccine attachment.

Set the mixer speed to #2 and begin feeding the pasta into the attachment. As it comes through, wrap it around your hand to create “nests” if using immediately or hang over a clothes hanger to dry.

Your gorgeous pasta can be used immediately or allowed to dry before freezing.

It really is that easy, you can search out recipes for pasta and find one you fall in love with and allow the KitchenAid pasta and roller set to do the heavy work.

Next up for me is to infuse spinach into some by placing it upon each strip before I fold in half then passing it through the roller. Today we enjoyed a gorgeous Garlic Bacon Carbonara which showed off the freshness of the homemade pasta perfectly!

    I would make my Mom’s homemade egg noodles. We always roll them out on the table and it is a lot of work, this would make it so much easier.
