Homemade Pasta Recipe 🍝

Nonna's homemade pasta recipe


You’ll need a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment as well as a pasta machine (hand crank, electric or stand mixer attachment)


  • 6 cups “00” flour + more for dusting
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups semolina
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 16 oz of water


  1. Pour flour, semolina, olive oil, salt, and eggs into a mixing bowl.
  2. Using a dough hook attachment, turn the mixer on to the lowest speed and mix until combined.
  3. Slowly add a little water at a time until the dough comes together. You may not need to use all 16 oz.
  4. Mix until dough is wrapped around the hook and no longer sticking to the bowl (a few minutes).
  5. Sprinkle counter or work surface with flour and begin kneading the dough with your hands.
  6. After several minutes of kneading, wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let rest for 45 minutes (it does not need to be refrigerated; if you do refrigerate you will need to let it come back to room temperature before rolling out).
  7. Section dough into 4 pieces and roll each out with a rolling pin until it’s thin enough to fit into the largest setting of the pasta machine.
  8. Once you’ve rolled out dough and it’s about 1/8 inch thick, put sheets through the tagliatelle attachment. Set cut pasta aside on a large floured surface such as a table or tablecloth.
  9. Let pasta dry overnight.
  10. Cook dried pasta in a pot of salted, boiling water until al dente.
  11. Serve with red sauce and basil and enjoy!
