pasta-037b

I made fresh heirloom (Einkorn) wheat pasta last night.
This is the process I used.
It takes me about 25 minutes.

Ingredients are simple and basic:
2 cups Einkorn wheat
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Grind 1 1/2 cup of wheat berries (this will make 2 cups flour) in wheat grinder.
Mix the water and freshly ground flour into two dough balls.
Let sit for 5 minutes
Flattened dough balls by hand
Put through pasta maker on the basic flat sheet setting

Now it is ready to serve
Top it with desired sauce
