Pasta Dough (standmixer/ pasta attachment)

Cuisinart original

The combination of “00” and semolina flours gives this dough the perfect bite when cooked, compared to traditional pasta dough made with just “00” flour.

Ingredients

2            large eggs

2            tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon water

1¼          cups “00” flour

⅔        cup semolina flour

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients, in the order listed, into the Cuisinart® mixing bowl. Attach the dough hook and mix on Speed 5 to combine, about 1 minute.
  2. Mix until dough mostly comes together and then continue mixing to knead, about 5 minutes, and check the texture. If too dry, add water one teaspoon at a time to desired consistency; alternatively, if the dough is too wet, add “00” flour one teaspoon at a time.
  3. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and, by hand, knead all dough together into a ball until it’s smooth and springs back to the touch, about 2 minutes.
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature, at least 20 minutes, before using. Pasta dough can be made and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  5. For best results, use the Cuisinart® Pasta Roller and Cutter to make the perfect lasagna sheets, pappardelle, linguine or spaghetti.
