After the homemade ravioli here we go with an other kind of homemade pasta. Last Sunday morning to inaugurate my new pasta machine I have decided to make some tagliatelle. This is my grandma’s recipe, so it is the Original One.

The machine I have allows me to prepare lasagna, tagliatelle and spaghetti so later I’ll show you how to prepare all this yourself.

Where to buy the pasta machine? Well, easy…on Taobao there are plenty of vendors that sell it at reasonable prices and deliver it right to your home step. Convenient isn’t it? I paid mine only 65 yuan. As always if you need any help placing your order on taobao you can email me at and I’ll do it for you : )

But now…let’s get started!

Ingredients (for 2 servings):

  • 200 g semolina flour (1 and 1/2 cup) – 200克粗粒小麦粉
  • 2 eggs – 2个鸡蛋
  • salt – 食用盐

Place the four in a mound creating a well in the center where you will add salt and pour in the slightly beaten eggs. 将面粉筛在台面上,在中央拨出一个洞,放入鸡蛋

Slowly pull the flour into the eggs until is all incorporated. Knead the dough by hand adding more flour on the surface. Let the dough rest for about 30 min.  然后搅拌搓匀。将面团搓揉均匀至光滑、柔软有弹性。台面上加一点面粉.将面团搓成一团后,在室温下静置30 分钟。

Take a little piece of dough and start pressing it using your pasta machine at no.1 面团切一小块,放入制面机压成一长块,初时可用最大厚度(即厚薄控制钮上1 号刻度)

Keep pressing the dough making it thinner each time by moving to no 2, then 3 and finally 4. 继续压面团即调高厚薄控制钮上的刻度。最后将控制钮调到4 号,整成把薄面块.

Now insert the dough into the tagliatelle section and start rolling out your tagliatelle. 把面团放在宽面的部分。

Your homemade tagliatelle are now ready! Place them on a tray covered with flour so they wont stick to each other.你的自制宽面准备好了!把宽面放在一个托盘上(托盘上滴面粉以至不让面沾一起)

Remember when you boil your homemade pasta to drop a couple of spoons of olive oil in the water so they wont stick together. This is necessary only for homemade pasta. 注意煮自制面的时候在水里倒入几个汤匙橄榄油。
