Garlic & Parsley Pasta Dough Recipe

I can without a doubt say when I was younger, I loved to cook. When the cooking started being for other people I really shied away from it all together. I’m sure my friends or past relationships thought, pfft this girl can’t cook?
Long story short, I started cooking for my husband (boyfriend at the time) was basic, lead to better – now I try to master any recipe I can.

I got the pasta roller attachment for my KitchenAid. Before that bad boy, my arms felt like they were going to fall off rolling out pasta dough.

I’m going to introduce you to a recipe that’s as easy as 1-2-3 to impress all your loved ones.

You will need the following:

2 Cups of flour
2 Cloves are garlic. Can be fresh. I prefer powder or at least minced
1 Tsp Salt
1 Bunch of Fresh Parsley
1 Egg, scrambled
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 Cup of water

In a mixer bowl, you add the flour, salt, garlic & parsley and olive oil. Mix up gently. Make a well in the flour and add the scrambled egg. Begin mixing and slowly add in water as needed without making the dough sticky. Let rest for 20 minutes.

I usually make the dough in the morning and cover, place in the fridge till I’m ready. If you are placing in the fridge. I recommend taking out 20 minutes prior to rolling out so the dough has time to get rid of the chill a bit. Knead a bit to speed up that process.
Bang, begin your rolling process. Whether you are using your muscles with a roller on your counter (I commend you) or your pasta roller.
With the pasta having the flavor I prefer to add the extra flavor into the protein rather than covering with a strong sauce, but hey – you’re making it. Add your own flare. Let me know what you change up or add to this simple recipe
