Take Your Pasta Skills to the Next Level

Are you looking to create your own pasta? Mamma Maria’s has the very best pasta in Salem, VA.  But we’re focusing on creating your own pasta in this month’s blog. Creating your own pasta can be a fun and creative process in Salem, VA. Here are some basic steps to get you started:


Choose your Ingredients: Consider the type of pasta you want to make and choose ingredients accordingly. There are many ingredients to choose from when creating your own pasta. Shelfcooking.com talks about the ingredients to build your own pasta meal.



Mix the Ingredients: Combine your chosen ingredients in a mixing bowl or on a clean work surface. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and pliable.


Rest the Dough: Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 30 minutes. This process will make it easier to work with later.


Roll Out the Dough: Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to your desired thickness. You can also use a pasta machine to make this process easier.


Cut the Pasta: Use a pasta cutter or a sharp knife to cut the pasta into your desired shape.


Cook the Pasta: Boil a pot of salted water and add in your pasta. Cook for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pasta is al dente.


Enjoy: Serve your homemade pasta with your favorite sauce and toppings, such as tomato sauce, cheese, or meat.
