What's the best pasta machine dough recipe?
I just bought the Imperia SP150, so my next question is, do you a great pasta machine dough recipe?
Which one of your fresh doughs works best with pasta makers? Or doesn't it matter?
I really don't wanna get the dough stuck in there and break it the first time!
Thanks in advance for your tips,
Sure, no problem.
There is no special pasta machine dough recipe: you simply have the main two types of dough you can usually make, i.e. made with or without egg.
Pasta dough with egg is my particular favorite, and makes strong, succulent pasta. This will run through a pasta machine just fine, once you've rolled it for just a minute to get it flat enough to fit between the rollers - find this dough recipe here (and the video version here).
The non-egg version will also run through a machine just fine, producing more translucent pasta that's a little more Chinese noodle-ish. One note - you'll need to buy special semolina flour first. Find this recipe (also suitable for vegan egg avoiders) here.
Enjoy your pasta making!
