Kitchen Aid Pasta

Place eggs, water, flour and salt in mixer bowl. Attached bowl and flat beater. Turn to speed 2 and mix for 30 to 60 seconds. Add more water if the dough is too dry, in 1/2 Tablespoon increments. Change out the flat beater for the dough hook. Turn to speed 2 and knead for 2 minutes. Remove the dough and knead by hand for 2 minutes. Let it rest for 20 to 30 minutes. Cut dough into four pieces before processing with pasta sheet attachment. Take one piece and flatten into a rectangular shape. Adding flour to both sides. Be sure to cover the other pieces. Attach the pasta sheet roller to your stand mixer and set it to #1. Turn on the stand mixer to speed 2 and run the pasta dough through the pasta sheet roller. While on #1, fold the dough in half and run it through again. I do this several times. Adding a little bit of flour on each side of the dough again, change setting to #2 and pass the pasta dough through the sheet roller. I do this twice and then twice each on #3 and then #4. If you want thicker dough, don’t do the #4 setting. Once again, add flour to each side of your long pasta sheet. Change the attachment to your spaghetti or fettuccine cutter and turn on to speed 2. Run the pasta sheet through and with your left hand, hold on to the pasta as it comes through the cutter. It’s usually really long so I cut it and then wind it around my hand to create a nest. Allow pasta to dry for a few minutes before boiling. When boiling your pasta, it only needs 3 to 7 minutes to boil. With this pasta recipe, I prefer the fettuccine cutter. Notes: If drying your pasta, hang on clean plastic clothes hangers or a pasta drying rack for at least an hour.

Homemade Pasta Makes 4 servings INGREDIENTS 2 3/4 cups “00” flour (plus additional for dusting) 3-4 eggs Pinch kosher salt DIRECTIONS Place flour, 3 eggs and salt into the bowl of your KitchenAid® Stand Mixer. Using flat beater attachment, mix until combined. (NOTE: If mixture is too “wet” add more flour until a dough consistency forms. If mixture is too “dry” add another egg.) Remove flat beater attachment and attach the dough hook. Mix until the dough forms a ball. Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator to rest for approximately 30 minutes. Using a sharp knife, or pastry bench scraper, cut the dough ball into four equal portions. Place one piece of dough near the Stand Mixer and return the remaining portions to the refrigerator until ready for use. Attach KitchenAid® Pasta Roller attachment to the Stand Mixer and adjust to setting 1. Sprinkle attachment with a small amount of flour. Press the dough ball onto a clean floured surface until flat. Run the pasta through the roller attachment. Adjust the pasta roller to setting 2. Run the pasta through. Continue with this pattern, adjusting the setting each time until your pasta is thin. This will take several passes. Continue the process with remaining pasta balls. Remove Pasta Roller attachment and attach the Spaghetti Cutter. Carefully run the pasta sheet through. Transfer your fresh spaghetti to a baking sheet lightly sprinkled with flour until ready to cook. Continue with remaining pasta sheets. The fresh pasta should be cooked immediately in a pot of salted boiling water for about 3-5 minutes. Print

Print 5.0 from 3 reviews How to Make Homemade Pasta with KitchenAid Mixer Ingredients 3½ cups all-purpose flour, sifted extra flour for dusting ½ teaspoon salt 4 large eggs, beaten 2 Tablespoons water Instructions Attach the flat beater to the stand mixer and place the flour, salt, eggs and water (begin with ½ tablespoon and add more as needed) into the mixing bowl. Turn mixer to speed 2 and mix until they are well combined. Remove the flat beater and attach the dough hook, knead until the dough indents when you touch it. Cover dough with plastic wrap or a damp tea towel and let it sit for approximately 20 minutes. Dust a cutting board with flour and knead the dough for a few minutes. Cut the dough into 4 pieces and form each into flat rectangle shapes with your hands. Take one piece and cover the others with a tea towel while you work with the first to keep them moist. Attach the pasta roller to your stand mixer, set the roller to #1 and turn on your mixer to speed #2 and run the pasta through the roller When it has rolled through, fold the strip in half and feed through again. Pat the dough in flour, change the roller attachment setting to #2 and repeat. Do this process at settings #3 and #4. Once you’re done, fold the pasta up gently and cover with a tea towel while you repeat the process for the remaining 3 pieces of dough. Once you’ve rolled out all of the pasta, cover it again and remove the roller attachment and attach the fettuccine attachment. Set the mixer speed to #2 and begin feeding the pasta into the attachment. As it comes through, wrap it around your hand to create “nests” if using immediately or hang over a clothes hanger to dry. Your gorgeous pasta can be used immediately or allowed to dry before freezing. Just in case this isn’t clear, I’ve made a video to show you all how I do it. 3.5.3208
