Fresh Italian Semolina Pasta Dough


  • 1.5 cups Bread Flour
  • 1 cup Semolina Flour
  • 0.5 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Water (or more as needed)


I've tried many, and this is still my favorite semolina pasta recipe.


Place the flours and salt in a large bowl. Mix well and form a well in the center.
Add the remaining ingredients and pinch all together with your fingers to form a dough. Knead for a few minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Place the dough on the counter and cover with the bowl. Let rest 1/2 hour.
Knead again briefly and form into any shape desired.
Remember to allow your pasta to dry for about an hour before cooking, refrigerating, or freezing.
