Remarkably simple, you just need flour and eggs (or your variation of these classic ingredients). Here’s how to do it:
1- Place flour and salt in the stand mixer bowl
2- Attach bowl and flat beater
3- Turn to speed 2 and gradually add eggs and a little water
4- Mix for 30 seconds
5- Stop the stand mixer and exchange the flat beater for the dough hook
6- Turn to speed 2 and knead for 2 minutes
7- Then, leave it to 'rest'
If you want to perfect the art of pasta making at home, the pasta cutters and roller 3-piece set is for you. This commercial-style trio is made of stainless steel for professional results. First, roll sheets of dough with the pasta roller and then feed them into the spaghetti or fettuccine cutter at different thicknesses.
1- Set your stand mixer to speed '0'
2- Insert the pasta roller into the attachment hub
3- Divide dough into pieces and flatten roughly with your hands
4- Start on the widest roller setting (number 1) to begin kneading
5- Remember to sprinkle flour on the dough to avoid sticking
6- Turn the stand mixer to speed '2' and begin feeding into the rollers. Fold the dough in half and roll again, repeating until it covers the width of the roller.
7- Increase to roller setting 3 and then upwards through the settings to get thinner and thinner sheets.
Which is your family favourite? Try creating it with the pasta press - 6 shapes. With 6 interchangeable discs, it’s your secret to spaghetti, bucatini, rigatoni, fusilli, large or small macaroni. This pasta machine is powered by any stand mixer (except the 6.9L professional stand mixer). Feed in the dough and slide around the wire cutter to cut the noodles. Child’s play? Almost!
Even with a pasta machine, the process takes up space. Cook your pasta straight away, or dry it for about 15 minutes with our KitchenAid pasta dryer to free up your countertop and achieve even drying. The spiral gives you over 3 metres of drying space. Use the wand to catch the strings from your pasta maker. Then, feel smug about your creation.
