Impress everyone, even yourself, by making this homemade Sourdough Pasta. Using your sourdough starter, flour, and eggs, you can have freshly made pasta to use in all your pasta recipes! Try it with the classic Spaghetti with Meatballs recipe!
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 Make Sourdough Pasta
Once the dough is ready to go and you have done your arm warmups, it’s time to roll the dough and get it cut and ready to cook.
Add some flour to your work surface and place the dough onto the floured surface. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough as thin as you can. This could take up to 20 minutes, so it would also be a good time to get the water boiling in a large pot.
Once you have rolled out the dough, use a pizza cutter to cut the size of the noodle you would like. You don’t even need a fancy machine or attachment to make this. After you cut the noodles, cook them in the boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain them and serve!
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.)
