Making pasta is not hard.  Once I became familiar with the process and my pasta maker, I could come home from work and make pasta for that night’s dinner! Don’t come home from work and try this the first time out though!  Give yourself a Saturday afternoon to play with it. You can do it all by hand, you can use a stand mixer to knead your dough and a hand cranked manual pasta roller to shape it.  You can get a pasta attachment for your mixer and do the whole process that way. Here are the basics of making the dough by hand or in a stand mixer and then  general directions for rolling and cutting.  If you have a pasta maker, use the instructions for your machine.

Instructions
 

BY HAND:

  • In a large bowl empty contents of 1 bag bread mix. Whisk in salt and make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.

  • Pour eggs and yolks into the center and using your fingers or a spatula push the flour into the eggs. Gradually a shaggy dough ball will form. Work dough in the bowl until all flour is incorporated.
  • You can knead the dough in the bowl, but I find it easier to plop it on the counter. Knead for 10 minutes. As you knead the dough, it may start to resist you. Just cover it with plastic and let it rest for 10 minutes. This will let the gluten relax and make the kneading easier.
  • Now wrap in plastic and let your dough rest for 1 hour.

BY STAND MIXER:

  • Put bread mix and salt in the bowl of the stand mixer. Make a well in the center and add eggs. Before attaching your dough hook to the mixer, use it to start mixing the eggs and dry ingredients together. This gives the mixer a head start!
  • Attach the hook and mix dough for a good 5 -6 minutes. You may have to help it along, using a spatula to get all the dough to ball up around the hook. It should be a firm smooth ball when you’re done. Wrap it in plastic and let rest for an hour.

  • Once the dough has rested for an hour and is ready to go, remove it from the plastic wrap and transfer it again to a cutting board. Use a knife to cut the dough into 6 equal wedges (like you’re slicing a pie), then set one wedge aside and immediately wrap the remainder in the plastic wrap again to prevent them from drying out.

BY HAND:

  • Roll wedge out into a rectangle 10 inches or so then fold in half and roll out again. Do this 2 more times. Now roll our pasta to 1 or 2 millimeters thick.
  • Using a pizza cutter or a knife, slice the dough into 5-inch sections. Then, starting on the short side of the sections, roll them up into very loose, flat cylinders. Cut the cylinders cross-wise to create your desired width of noodles. Then transfer the cut pasta to a drying rack, or lay them on parchment while you make the rest.

BY MANUAL ROLLER OR STAND MIXER ATTACHMENT:

  • You will proceed here according to the directions of your pasta maker.

  • This is, in general, what I do:
  • Roll a portion out by hand into a long strip
  • Roll out on the lowest number ( my machine starts on 0) 3 times.
  • Do this up to number 3.
  • Now take the pasta sheet and fold it like a business letter.
  • Start at the first setting again and continue on to the thickness you want.
  • I find the keto dough sheets need to dried a bit before the final cutting into noodles/fettuccine/ spaghetti etc.
  • Once you have all your pasta cut, you can let it dry on parchment paper and bag it for later use or use it immediately. Either way, fresh pasta cooks much faster than store bought!

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add your pasta and stir briefly. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes. No more! The best pasta is warmed in the sauce and cooked briefly. This allows the pasta to soak up the flavors of the sauce. I find that this goes double for the Ketonia Pasta. Even if you’re just making noodles with butter and parmesan, it is so worth it to swirl it around in a sauté pan for a few minutes. The pasta just soaks up the buttery goodness and YUM!!!
