Homemade Whole Wheat Pasta

Make your own fresh whole wheat pasta



  1. Mix flaxseed meal and 3 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Let set 10 minutes until it starts to thicken.
  2. Mix flour and salt.
  3. Add eggs and all other liquids, including flax mixture.
  4. Mix well. Continue to mix until dough has a slight elastic feel. Add a little flour if dough sticks to your fingers. If it seems too dry add water a teaspoon at a time. It is too easy to add too much water.
  5. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Divide into small balls and roll thin. Slice into fettuccine size pasta and hang to dry or lay on well floured surface. You can also drop it immediately into boiling water but make sure you have all the pasta you need so it cooks evenly.
  7. Cook pasta for 3-5 minutes, until it floats. Trust me, you’ll know when it’s floating.
  8. Serve with butter, pesto, or your favorite sauce.
