Pasta (254)      Eggs (203)      Wholemeal (8)     


Admittedly it is much easier to buy pasta from the shop, but I'm always interested in giving things a try, so one day I decided to try and make my own pasta. The one problem is, is that I don't have a pasta maker, so I did it all by hand. I also decided to make things difficult for myself by making penne pasta rather than lasagne sheets. While making the shapes was easy enough, it did take a long time. If you have time on your hands, then it is always worth a go, and if you have a pasta machine, then the process will be quick and easy.

There are two ways you can make pasta: with or without eggs. Some recipes just use flour and water, but for that extra richness, I used eggs. Nine small portions should be about 206 calories based on the brands I used.

Preparation Time: 1 hour
Cooking Time: 4 minutes
Makes: 9 servings

Ingredients
500g wholemeal flour
3 large eggs
4 tbsp water

Method
Create a well in the centre of the flour.
Pour in eggs and gradually fork in the flour.
Form a dough by adding the water.
Knead the dough for ten minutes.
Divide the dough into three balls, then cover them with a cloth leave for fifteen minutes.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, and cut into shapes depending on what type of pasta you want. If you have a pasta machine, you can use that, which will make the process much simpler and quicker.
Leave the pasta to dry, then when ready to use, boil it for four minutes and serve with whatever ingredients you like.
