Learning how to make pasta from an actual Italian chef was a treat!
We used about 1 cup of (00) pasta flour, and 1/2 cup of semolina per serving, which could really be enough for two people, but you’ll have to judge the portion size.
Make a well and add a bit of water, take a fork and blend it enough to keep the well intact but you have the look of milk.
Knead, knead, knead, it may actually hurt your hands. You will need a pasta maker for this part, divide into 3, roll out into a long oval, keeping in mind the opening size of the pasta maker. Start at the widest number, usually 1, and pass it through, increasing the numbers as you go, we went up to about 6.
These noodles cook quickly, so have the fam ready at the table eating salad before the last step.
Boil for 2-3 minutes, when cooked to your liking, take and place directly into a pan with the sauce, toss around and then plate. Use a twisting motion to get that nest look. Top with freshly grated parmigiana and basil if you’d like.
