As soon as I perfected my sourdough starter recipe, I have been on a sourdough kick, from Sourdough Bread to Easy Sourdough Brownies! So, why stop there? I had made homemade pasta before and loved it. A perk about this recipe is that this sourdough pasta recipe is made with just three ingredients and went really smoothly! Plus, you can create any shape of noodles you want to with this recipe.

Sourdough Pasta Recipe

Who knew that with just three ingredients you could have homemade pasta? I have made pasta before in my Five Cheese Ravioli recipe, but it required double the ingredients and a special attachment! As I mentioned, once you get that sourdough starter down, recipe options are endless! And, in this pasta recipe, you can use discard or fed starter.

Sourdough Pasta Dough

The toughest thing about making sourdough pasta is the rolling of the dough. Save your upper body/arms workout day to when you are making this. You will be glad you did since it will definitely work your muscles! Besides that, this recipe is easy to get together and use in any recipe that calls for pasta. Plus, you can make the noodles as wide or as thin as you prefer.

To make the pasta, get out your stand mixer and combine the sourdough starter, flour, and eggs into the bowl of the mixer. Using the dough hook attachment, mix on low until the dough forms into a ball. Cover the dough with plastic wrap to let it rest for about 30 minutes. You can actually let this rest overnight if you are not ready to make the noodles right away.

You can make this without a stand mixer, a little elbow grease goes a long way. 🙂

How to Freeze Noodles

To freeze fresh noodles, flour the noodles well and then lay them flat on a cookie sheet. Place the noodles into the freezer for about an hour. Remove from the freezer and place into an airtight container or bag, and be sure to label it.  When you are ready to use them, remove the desired amount and add to boiling water or soup and cook for about 8-10 minutes. (Fresh noodles only need 2-3 minutes.)

  1. Love sourdough pasta: can’t eat any other kind now… I go a step further and leave the dough ball to sit at room temperature for 5 or 6 hours, then fridge overnight. The taste and texture is next level!

  2. Can I use a pasta machine to roll and cut these noodles if I have one? I have to try these… so yummy. Love using my sourdough starter for various recipes. Thanks for sharing !
