On my recent trip to Lucca, Italy (Yes. I went to Italy...still working on editing my photos!) I ate a fabulous creamy mushroom pasta dish. So I got the idea to make my own pasta and try to find a creamy mushroom recipe. There are many pasta recipes on line with great instructions. Here's the recipe I used. I also used my mixer even though you can make it by hand. It was well worth the effort.
I mixed the flour and salt together then added the eggs and water.
Once mixed together it was drier than I thought.
Take the dough and make it into a ball and wrap with plastic wrap.
After the dough rests I ran it through the pasta machine. Now I didn't have a food pasta machine, but I had a craft room pasta roller. It's all I had and it worked okay, but tough to secure to my counter top. I'm going to look into a real kitchen pasta machine. I ran it through the machine a few times to get it the thickness of 1/4".
After passing it through the pasta machine I rolled it and cut it into 1/2' strips.
This was the fun part.... figuring out how to dry it. I used a clothes hanger to hang the pasta to dry. I did find a creamy mushroom recipe but I didn't like it...too thick and not much taste. Then again I'm trying to match the pasta dish I ate in Italy.... The pasta was good and I will continue to make. I'm on the hunt for a pasta machine.
