The idea of hand rolling homemade pasta is not something to be intimidated by. Although, I will say that without adequate research, you will fail in your first few attempts if you have not read up on the science behind the pasta making process.
I have learned from my first few goes at making this pasta that it is a long, time consuming process that should not ever be first attempted with another individual present. To "avoid stressful hangry confrontations" it may be best to prepare your pasta ahead of time just like the Italian housewives have done for centuries!
After watching a few videos and after doing my research I found a method that works!
Giada used a food processor to mix her dough. After using a food processor to make a well combined pie crust, I figured why wouldn't it be the same for pasta dough?
Some recipes will suggest 00 flour, or regular, or semolina, although I found the perfect balance by combining 3/4 cup of semolina and 3/4 cup standard wheat flour. Sift the flours together to combine. Then in a food processor add 3 beaten egg whites 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of water and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Once you have this dough pulsed together, it's time to knead! This is one of the key steps in the process. You want to knead until you have one elastic ball, that is not sticky. Lead with your palms. Let the ball sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes. Then slice the dough into 4 pieces and run each piece through the machine starting zkwith setting #7 and ending at #4. I have only made ravioli and can't imagine a pasta that would require a finer dough but this recipe will guarantee you have a manageable texture for a variety of pastas.
There is one article that I found VERY helpful in explaining the proportions of ingredients for the perfect dough.
Gnocci is so easy to make my hand but for the pastas that require a machine, it can be a little more difficult. Reach out with any questions, always : )
For the filling and sauce, try this nummy goat cheese and brown butter recipe:
