How to Make Homemade Pasta with KitchenAid Mixer

Share Button

Life has been ridiculously busy here for months and it’s probably been that long since I’ve gotten up to my elbows to make some homemade pasta using my KitchenAid mixer and KitchenAid Pasta Roller & Cutter Attachment Set.  Today I pulled my darling out, turned on some music and spent some ME time in the kitchen. Making homemade pasta isn’t difficult, it’s actually super simple if you follow this easy recipe.

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.

How to Make Homemade Pasta with KitchenAid Mixer

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 (1 begin with 1 tablespoon and add more as needed) into the mixing bowl. Turn mixer to speed 2 and mix until they are well combined.

Remove the flat beater and attach the dough hook, knead until the dough indents when you touch it. Cover dough with plastic wrap or a damp tea towel and let it sit for approximately 20 minutes.

Dust a cutting board with flour and knead the dough for a few minutes. Cut the dough into 4 pieces and form each into flat rectangle shapes with your hands. 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

When it has rolled through, fold the strip in half and feed through again. Pat the dough in flour, change the roller attachment setting to #2 and repeat. Do this process at settings #3 and #4.

Once you’re done, 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.

Just in case this isn’t clear, I’ve made a video to show you all how I do it.

    I’ve been thinking of getting one of these attachments for my Kitchen Aid mixer but I’m not too sure it would really be worth the money for us. This post does make it tempting though. :-)

      there is nothing like homemade pasta – make it and put it in freezer bags and then the freezer – you always have awesome pasta on hand – I have all the pasta attachments for my kitchen aide including the ravioli maker and I make spinach and cheese ravioli and put them in the freezer – the spinach is straight from the garden

    Thank you so much for this video. I have the pasta attachment and read the instructions and put it back in the box as it seemed too complicated. I am now going to take it out and try it for myself as you make it look so easy.

    Hi I followed all instructions about making pasta but it just stayed crumbly, didn’t dough up. Can you please give me ideas to what has happened.
    Thanks Bev
