Fresh Red Pepper Pasta
Copyright Recipe © 2017 Woodland Foods


Makes 1 pound of pasta

  • 2 3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour

  • 1/4 Cup Red Bell Pepper Powder

  • 4 Large Eggs, plus 1 egg yolk

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Fine Sea Salt


  1. In a bowl combine the flour, salt and red bell pepper powder very thoroughly.

  2. Empty this mixture onto a clean counter and mound the flour up into a cone. Use a spoon to create a well from the top down to the counter.

  3. Crack the eggs into the well and use a fork to whisk them smooth. Continue to whisk and move the fork outward drawing flour into the eggs. When this thickens enough lose the fork use fingers until the eggs have taken in 90% of the flour.

  4. Begin kneading the dough with the heel and palm of a hand. Utilize the remaining flour to keep the dough from sticking.

  5. The dough should go from slightly grainy to smooth and glossy. It will be firm but pliable and not at all wet to the touch. Keep any remaining flour for rolling the dough into pasta sheets and pass the sheets through a pasta roller to desired forms.
