Additional Information:

Durum flour is high in protein and well suited to making pasta. because they are more easily stretched into long pieces without breaking. The Italians use them to make pasta. According to Nutrition Over Easy, “Durum” is a strain of wheat that is used mostly for pasta, due to its higher protein content. (Think of “Durum” as its first name and “Wheat” as its family name.) But unless it says “whole grain” you can assume that it is refined, which means that the nutritious germ and fibrous bran have been removed.

The word “Semolina,” on the other hand, refers to the fact that the durum wheat is coarsely ground–again, in order to produce good pasta texture. 

Durum semolina flour contains 15g of protein per 100g of flour, higher than normal flour.

Below is the original recipe. The one shows above is of the same proportion.

1. 250g of Semolina flour (Semola mel)
2. 1 egg with water totaling 110ml (or 95ml water without egg)

3. 2 heap tsp salt (for cooking pasta)
4. 1.5L water (for cooking pasta)


Use Durum Semolina flour.

The Durum Semolina flour is available from Føtex Supermarket. It is not available in Meny or Netto.

1 egg with water totaling 110ml 

Beat egg and water together.

Measure exactly 250g of Durum semolina flour.

Add 250g Durum semolina flour to the Pasta Maker. 

Gradually add in the egg-water mixture and let the machine knead the mixture for 6 minutes (this means for the Philips Pasta Maker, you need to knead twice as each round is 3 minutes)

Then allow the dough to rest for approximately 30 minutes.

Extrude your desired pasta shapes.

Now it is done :-)

Bring to boil of pot of water (approx. 1.5L) and add 2 teaspoons salt. Then cook the pasta for 2,5 to 3 minutes for pasta al dente. 

Drain the pasta, season as desired, and serve :-)
