Semolina Pasta Dough Recipe


This is a perfect recipe for Columbus Day. I love Semolina pasta and the dough is so easy to make. After making this dough, you might find yourself never buying pasta again.


You’ll need:

  • 2-cups of semolina flour
  • 2-eggs whisked
  • 2-tbs of water
  • 3-tbs of olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp of salt



  1. Put the flour on a work surface and make a well in the middle.
  2. In a bowl mix the water, eggs, salt and olive oil together.
  3. Pour this into the flour well.
  4. Using a fork and slowly pull the flour into the egg mixture until it’s all mixed.
  5. Using your hands from this into a stiff dough.
  6. Knead the dough for 10 minutes until it is elastic. If need be add drops of water along the way.
  7. Once you have a elastic dough, form it into a ball and wrap it tightly in plastic wrap. Let the dough sit on the counter in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  8. Use a pasta machine to make the pasta shape or roll it out by hand with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface and cut into your pasta shape.
