Pasta Dough

  • Yield: 1 pound of pasta/4 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups durum semolina
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • Mix the semolina, flour, and salt together. On a large work surface, form a mound with the semolina mixture and create a "well" in the center of the mound. In a small bowl, beat the eggs and oil together until smooth. Pour this mixture into the well. Working from the inside of the well out, gradually work the semolina into the eggs, until all the flour is worked in. Wrap with plastic and allow to rest for 30 to 40 minutes. Roll out and cut to desired shape.
