Homemade Lasagna Noodles

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, January Winter 2008

Ingredients

  • 2 cups '00' flour or all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 16 to 18 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Semolina flour, for dusting

Directions

  1. Place '00' or all-purpose flour into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. In a large bowl, mix together yolks, milk, salt, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. With the mixer on low, slowly add egg mixture to flour; mix until well combined. Increase mixer speed to medium and knead until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and is smooth and elastic, about 15 minutes.

  2. Transfer dough to work surface and knead in remaining tablespoon oil. Cover dough with a damp kitchen towel and let rest at room temperature for 2 hours before rolling or store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 1 day.

  3. Dust work surface lightly with semolina flour.

  4. Divide pasta dough into 5 pieces and flatten each piece with the palm of your hand. Roll each piece of dough through a pasta machine, working from the largest setting to the smallest setting, and passing the dough through each setting twice. Using a sharp knife, cut pasta sheets into 13-inch-long pieces. Lay pasta sheets on prepared work surface, covered with a damp kitchen towel as you work.

  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, prepare and ice-water bath. Generously salt ice-water bath and set aside. Add pasta to boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Drain, and immediately transfer to ice-water bath. Line a baking sheet with kitchen towels and transfer dough to baking sheet, layering kitchen towels between cooked pasta.

    These are the two questions I had! I thought I remembered not cooking the fresh pasta - and usually when I make homemade pasta the rule I have followed is 1 egg to 1cup flour.

    The last few times I made fresh pasta for a lasagna I put the pasta straight into the lasagna without boiling it first. I used the kitchen aid recipe and it came out great. Should I have cooked it first?
