Pasta Dough

Summary: This pasta dough is easy to work with and delicious. I adapted this recipe from one I found on epicurious so that it would include whole wheat flour.


  • 1 cup "00" flour
  • ¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup water


Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and blend until it starts to come together in a ball. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead ~6 minutes incorporating only as much flour as necessary; this dough should not be sticky.

Shape into a ball, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and let sit at room temp for 1 hour.

Roll out with a pasta machine. I went to 8 for ravioli dough.
