Vegan Pasta

I know, you probably think " fresh pasta? Is it worth the effort?". We always have a stash of dried pasta in the cupboard, but every once in a while it is nice to get messy and have a bit of fun in the kitchen. The kids LOVE making fresh pasta, with minimal inexpensive ingredients and no fancy tools needed I definitely think it's worth the effort.

Fresh Vegan Pasta

Time approximately 1 1/2 hours

Servings 4


200g semolina

200g plain flour/pasta "oo" flour *you can use just plain flour for this recipe

150g water

1 tsp sea salt

2tbsn olive oil


Pasta roller or rolling pin

pastry cutter or sharp knife

straw or wooden skewer


Add all dry ingredients together in a bowl

slowly add water and olive oil

mix until a sticky dough forms

tip the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead the dough until smooth

shape the dough and let sit out on counter for atleast 45 minutes

roll out the dough to about 2mm

shaping your pasta

- cut thin strips for fettuccine/ spaghetti

- cut thin strips, then wrap around a skewer to form a hollow coil for fusilli bucati

- cut small rectangles and pinch center to form bowtie pasta

- cut wide sheets for fresh lasagne or cannoli

To cook:

Add to a pan of boiling water, cook for about 3 minutes and top with your favourite veggies, or pasta sauce.

If not cooking straight away, dust with flour and store dough in the fridge for 2 days.

You can also shape the pasta, dust with flour let sit out for about 30 minutes then freeze them for up to 3 months.

The possibilities are endless, these are just a few we make at home without any fancy tools.

And I don't mind the time nor the effort especially when making it with the kids, and the memories we are making in the process. Go on play with your food!
