Semolina Pasta Dough (Pasta Bianca):

  • 200 g fine semolina flour
  • 120 ml warm water

Egg Eggs (Pasta all’uovo):

Egg Yolk Pasta (Pasta al tuorlo d’uovo):


  • Tip your semolina or 00 flour on a work surface. Create a well. If you're using water, add it little by little and mix pinching the sides in, creating a paste-like consistency. If you're adding eggs, crack the eggs/ egg yolks in the well and pinch with your fingertips to start combining (see videos below).
  • Carry on until the pasta dough completely absorbs the moisture and the dough comes together.
  • Start kneading the dough by pressing your palm toward forwards on the dough, then fold the dough back and repeat the motion. Keep kneading for 10 minutes, until the dough looks smooth and shiny.
  • If your dough feels too dry and doesn't come together, add a tbsp of water at a time, and keep kneading. If it feels too sticky, add a sprinkling of semolina/ 00 flour.
  • Wrap a dough ball in cling film to prevent drying out and leave to rest for 30-60 minutes.
  • Rested dough is ready to be used! Videos below show how to create various pasta shapes with or without a pasta machine.
