PASTA, SEMOLINA WATER

By:


After returning from Sicily we began making Sicilian pasta–just semolina and water. In addition, we do it all by hand. This cuts in half easily unless making large amounts.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cup semolina flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 10 ounce water

Method:

Mix salt into flour and add water a little at a time until it holds together. If it doesn’t take all the water that is okay. Start kneading on a lightly floured cutting board until the inside of the dough is as smooth as the outside, about 10 minutes for the experience and 20-30 for the novice.  Check by cutting a little ways into the center and check for smoothness. If smooth let it rest 20-30 minutes; then shape into the pasta you want.
