Homemade Egg Pasta / Domaća tjestenina s jajima

I’ve been meaning to tackle with homemade pasta for ages, but I always imagined it like some super laborious process and would simply succumb to store-bought pasta. After finally giving it a go I discovered a few things. First of all, homemade pasta is a piece of cake. It takes only minutes to whip up and is a completely straightforward task. Secondly, your arms are gonna get a good workout out of it if you’re not using a mixer. And finally, homemade pasta is delicious. Also, I can’t wait to take this basic recipe further and throw in all sorts of fun things into the mix, like different flours or veggie puree.

METHOD:

Whisk together flour and salt. Add in the eggs, olive oil and two tablespoons of water. Stir until dough starts forming up, then knead for a few minutes into a smooth ball. If necessary, add in a bit more water. Wrap the dough in cling foil and leave to rest for half an hour.

After half an hour, roll the dough out on a floured work surface and cut into desired shapes. You can totally use pasta maker instead of a rolling pin for easier rolling. I flattened the dough into a sheet, then sprinkled generously with flour and rolled it into a sausage, then cut off the strips with a knife.

Cook the dough in salted boiling water for a few minutes. You can also refrigerate uncooked and well-floured dough pieces in an airtight container for up to a week.

Već se neko vrijeme namjeravam pozabaviti sa domaćom tjesteninom, ali uvijek sam to zamišljala kao neki užasno kompliciran proces, pa bi na kraju završila sa kupovnom tjesteninom. Nakon što sam se napokon odvažila na taj pothvat, utvrdila sam par stvari. Prvo, domaća tjestenina je jako jednostavna za napraviti. Treba vam svega par minuta vremena i sve je sasvim jasno. Drugo, dobro ćete si izvježbati ruke ako ne mislite koristiti mikser. I za kraj, domaća tjestenina je prefina. Također, jedva čekam da ovaj osnovni recept odvedem korak dalje i ubacim svakave zabavne sastojke, od različitih vrsta brašna do pirea od povrća.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 3-4 porcije / 4,44 kn)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice brašna (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 žlica maslinovog ulja (0,33 kn)

2-3 žlice vode (–)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Pomiješajte tijesto sa soli. Dodajte jaja, maslinovo ulje i dvije žlice vode, pa miješajte dok se tijesto ne počne formirati. Par minuta mijeste tijesto da dobijete glatku kuglu, a po potrebi dodajte još mrvicu vode. Zamotajte tijesto u prijanjajuću foliju i ostavite da miruje pola sata.

Nakon pola sata razvaljajte tijesto na pobrašnjenoj ravnoj plohi i režite u željene oblike. Da si olakšate, umjesto valjka slobodno koristite mašinu za tijesto. Ja sam razvaljala tijesto u plahtu, dobro pobrašnila, zarolala u kobasicu, pa onda nožem rezala u trake.

Tijesto kuhajte par minuta u ključaloj slanoj vodi. Također, sirovo, dobro pobrašnjeno tijesto možete do tjedan dana čuvati u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi.
