Cooking with Chef Franco

Chef Franco from Franco’s Italy stopped by to show us how to make a basic fresh pasta dough.
Franco’s Basic Fresh Pasta Dough
  • 2 ¼ cups Semolina flour
  • 3 large eggs Or
  • 3 parts flour/1 part whole eggs
Directions: Combine the flours and mound onto a work surface; make a well in the center. Break the eggs into the well; gently break the yolks. Using a fork, begin to whisk the eggs, incorporating a little of the flour as you do so. Gradually blend the flour with the eggs until about half of the flour is combined with the eggs. Using a pastry scraper, “chop” the flour and eggs, always moving the mixture in toward the center, until the eggs are thoroughly combined with the flour. (dough will appear very grainy and dry-that’s ok for now!) Knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface with smooth, firm strokes, turning it as you fold and press.  Add a bit of water if dough feels too dry. Continue kneading until soft and pliable. Finished dough should not be sticky, but a bit dry to the touch. It will take at least 6 minutes kneading to achieve a smooth and elastic texture. Put the dough in a plastic bag or cover completely with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes. Fresh dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To cook: cut to desired shape and boil in salted water for 5 minutes. Serves 4 Simple method: Place ingredients into a food processor for 2 minutes; remove dough and kneed for 2-3 minutes. Flatten dough with your hand and use a rolling pin to thin to approximately the thickness of a dime. Cut to into thin strips for fettuccine To cook: bring 4-5 quarts salted water to a boil. Add fresh pasta and cook for 7 minutes. Drain and toss with your favorite sauce
