  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. + Standing
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semolina flour


  • In a small bowl, whisk the first 6 ingredients. On a clean work surface, mix the all-purpose and semolina flours, forming a mound. Make a large well in the center. Pour egg mixture into the well. Using a fork or fingers, gradually mix flour mixture into egg mixture, forming a soft dough (the dough will be slightly sticky).
  • Lightly dust work surface with flour; knead dough gently 5 times. Divide into 6 portions; cover and let rest 30 minutes.
  • To make fettuccine, roll each ball into a 10x8-in. rectangle, dusting lightly with flour. Roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into 1/4-in.-wide strips. Cook in boiling water 1-3 minutes.

    Pasta turned out great. I made the dough then ran it through my pasta machine to roll and cut. More labor intensive than opening a box but worth the effort now and again.

    Want to try this and have one question-Is semolina flour needed or can I just use regular flour?

    on the video it says to knead it for 10 minute.. in the directions above it states to knead just 3 times..i am making these right now so I will rate later. I made this and it turned out great without kneading like the video. I followed the recipe above . It was great and very fillling.
