Homemade Wholewheat Pasta with Egg & Dried Herbs


Ingredients:

1. 395 g wholewheat flour
2. 5 g dried herbs such as oregano, thyme, basics, etc.
3. 3 eggs + water total equal to 180ml

Directions:

1. Add flour into the compartment of the pasta machine (I use Philips Viva pasta machine)
2. Slowly add the liquid.
3. The machine will mix and knead the dough for 3 minutes and start to extrude the pasta thereafter.
4. Cut the pasta to the preferred length.
5. The whole process takes 18 minutes.
6. Cook pasta for 2 - 10 minutes or until cooked, depending on the type of flour you use, longer for wholewheat flour.

Additional Information:

This is a super nutritious pasta made with nutrient-rich wholewheat flour, containing the vitamins from the herbs and protein from the eggs. Since my kids don't like to eat meat, I use 3 eggs instead of just water for the liquid mixture, but it will turn out just fine using water. If using water, you only need 170 ml of water, instead of 180 ml.

As a rule, you can add any dry ingredients, just make sure that it doesn't exceed 400 g. You can add any type of liquid you want e.g. spinach juice, etc., just make sure that it doesn't exceed 180 ml.

You will notice that the color of your pasta looks tan, due to the wholewheat flour. Wholewheat flour is also called wholemeal flour.

Our kids love pasta. So it is always a hit. And pasta is very versatile - it allows me to hide many things in it - vegetables, herbs, eggs, etc. And the kids won't even notice it and taste the difference. C doesn't like herbs, but she will eat this pasta like crazy :-) We use the Phillips pasta machine on average once a week.

White wholewheat flour

Add 295 g white wholewheat flour

Add 5 g dried herbs

Crack and stir 3 eggs into the measuring container.

Stir and add water until it reaches 180 ml.

Add flour mixture into the compartment of the pasta machine.

Slowly add the egg mixture.

The machine will mix and knead the dough for 3 minutes and start to extrude the pasta thereafter.

Cut the pasta to the preferred length. The whole process takes 18 minutes.

If you wish and have the time, you can press the pause button, open the lid and place the leftover pasta dough into the extruder. Then close the lid and press the button to resume.

 This is how the pasta looks like when it is done :-)

 Meanwhile, boil a pot of water. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and some salt. Boil for 2-10 minutes. The pasta will float to the surface when it is cooked.

 The pasta is cooked :-)

We ate it today with some smoked salmon and homemade pesto.
