Equipment

  • Rolling Pin

Ingredients

  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup semolina flour (or substitute for more all purpose flour)
  • teaspoon turmeric powder (optional - just to add color)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

Make the dough

  • In a large mixing bowl add the flours, salt, turmeric powder and stir well.
    1½ cups all purpose flour, 1 cup semolina flour, ⅛ teaspoon turmeric powder, ½ teaspoon salt
  • Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour the water and olive oil into the well.

  • Mix well. Then form into a ball with your hands. Flour a clean surface and knead the dough for 9 minutes to activate the gluten and make the pasta more chewy.

Let it rest

  • Form the dough into a ball and cover with saran wrap, or place in a tupperware bowl with a lid. Set in the fridge and let it sit for 30 minutes, to let the gluten activate even more. No more than 17 hours.

Form the pasta

  • Cut the dough in half. Using a rolling pin, thinly roll out one of the dough balls on a lightly floured surface.

  • Lightly dust the surface of the dough once it's rolled out, to prevent it from sticking when we roll it up. Loosely roll it up

  • Cut into strips. Then do the same thing for the other portion of the dough.
  • Unfurl the pasta and then lay them in little pasta bundles that look like nests

Boil pasta

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Serve with your favorite sauce.

Notes

If you don't have semolina flour

just replace it with the same amount of all purpose flour. No big deal!

If you don't have a rolling pin

You can use a wine or beer bottle, or something with a similar shape.

Gluten free option

You can make this gluten free by using gluten free all purpose flour. You also need to add a flax egg, since there is no gluten in this to make it chewy and stick together.
To make the flax egg, mix 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds to 3 tablespoons of water. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then add it to the pasta mixture, when adding your other liquids. Be very gentle with it, as gluten free pasta tends to be more fragile and fall apart easier.
