My pasta recipe is very straightforward in that it has 2 ingredients, flour, and eggs. I don’t normally add salt or olive oil because I want neutral flavors. It’s your sauce that should be the showcase. Granted, there are various dishes that you may want to have flavored noodles but this is a good recipe to get you started.
This recipe is great for linguine, spaghetti, and fettuccine. I have made it several times and have fed 3 people with it but it can easily be made for a family of 4…We over ate that night by the way…I mean, it’s pasta for cryin’ out loud. And fresh at that!
This recipe would work great for bowtie as well. If you wanted to make ravioli or other filled pasta, you may need to increase the amount a little. Definitely play around with it and see what works for you. Once you have the basics down, you’ll be able to create a lot of dishes and you can experiment with flavors like squid ink. Well, maybe not squid ink. I have to admit, I’ve made that a few times it is definitely NOT my favorite. You could definitely make a spinach or tomato-based pasta. Be on the lookout for that recipe, I’ll have to give it a shot. Test it out. Let me know what you think about this recipe.
