    8 oz Semolina (Durum Wheat)
    110 ml Water

    Cooking Instructions

      This pasta has only two ingredients and it tastes fantastic. If you buy any dry pasta in the supermarket it is going to be made this way.
    1. Measure out the Semolina into a large mixing bowl.
    2. You are going to need 55 ml of cold water to every 4 oz of semolina, so if you want to make half this quantity then its 4 oz semolina to 55 ml of water.
    3. Mix in the water with a fork until combined, and it forms lumps in the semolina.
    4. Then with your hands form the mixture into a ball of pasta dough by squeezing it together in your hands until it binds together.
    5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and start to knead.
    6. Press the dough with the palm of your hand, then fold it and repeat the process.
    7. Knead on a floured surface for about 5 - 10 minutes until smooth.
    8. Set up your pasta machine, then I always rub some olive oil over the rollers and surfaces just to stop the pasta sticking.
    9. Once you have your pasta dough made you can roll it with a pasta machine into Pasta Sheets, Tagliatelle or any number of other pasta shapes.
