Fresh Pasta Dough
Why bother to make fresh pasta when there are so many choices to buy dry pasta in any supermarket? The truth is fresh and dry pasta are entirely different. Dry pasta is typically made by mixing a coarse wheat flour and water. The dough is shaped and dried at low temperatures for optimal storage. When cooked, pasta has denser, firmer texture. It can be cooked longer and is usually served with heavy sauces.
Typical fresh pasta is made from a combination of flour and eggs. Eggs add water, proteins, and fat to the dough to make it silky and delicious. You don’t need laborious sauces to make fresh pasta exciting — two minutes of boiling in salty water, and just some butter and grated cheese will do the trick. Serve it with lean proteins and vegetables to have a quick, healthy meal.
