Homemade Colored Pasta Art
Add one cup flour to a clean work surface. (I’m making two batches so I have two separate cups).
1
Make a well in the middle of the mound by moving the flour to the outsides. You should see the a little bit of the counter.
2
Add one egg into each well.
3
Place the gel food coloring in the middle of the well. (Gel works a lot better than water based food colorings). Then add 1/2 tsp salt.
4
Add 1 tsp olive oil.
5
Then start scrambling the egg with a fork. Carefully and slowly incorporate the flour from the outside. If you add too much at once it can shard.
6
When it gets hard to work with sprinkle a light dusting of flour on top. Start slowly kneading in more flour from the outside. You won’t use it all.
7
Knead in flour until the dough is soft and not sticky. If it feels sticky at all knead in more flour.
8
Follow the same steps with the other color.
9
It’s important to knead in the flour slowly to prevent shards in the dough. This will take about 5 minutes or so.
10
Clean the counter by using a bench scraper. Save the excess flour for rolling out. Let the pasta dough sit for 30 minutes to rest.
11
When you are ready to roll out, lightly dust the counter with flour.
12
Roll the dough with a rolling pin into a very thin rectangle. 1/8 inch is ideal, but it is a little hard when rolling out by hand.
13
Make sure the pasta sheet is dusted with flour and then roll into a loose logs cut into 1/4 inch strips to create the pasta.
14
Dust lightly with flour to prevent sticking.
15
To create bow ties cut 1 inch pieces. Twist and press the edges.
16
Then take a fork and press the edges.
17
Continue with the rest of the dough. These are meant to be rustic.
18
To cook bring a pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt.
19
Carefully add the pasta and cook for 3-5 minutes.
20
Drain the pasta.
21
Make your art by using vegetables or herbs of your choice.
