Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: ~3 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 2½ cups, semolina flour
  • ½-1 cup, water
  • 1 tbs, extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp, salt
  • 1 tbs, freshly minced oregano
  • 1 tbs, freshly minced basil
  • Extra unbleached all-purpose flour


  1. Place the flour, salt, herbs, and olive oil in your Kitchen Aid Mixer, food processor or simply use a bowl. Then combine the ingredients at a low speed.
    • Add water 1 tbsp at a time while the mixer is running or you are stirring with a fork.
    • Keep adding water until you achieve a dough-like consistency.
      • Note, you will need to work the dough for quite a few minutes. It should be smooth in texture and a  bit sticky.
  2. Dust a clean surface with the all-purpose flour.
    • Remove the dough from the mixer and set it on the floured surface.
    • Cover the dough with a kitchen towel to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Dust a rolling pin with flour and roll out the dough to a quarter inch.
    • If using a KitchenAid pasta attachment, begin to put sections of the rolled dough through
      the initial ‘flattening pasta attachment.’
    • Then attach the spaghetti attachment, and collect small batches of spaghetti.
    • If you do not have a KitchenAid pasta attachment, you can still make pasta! 
      • Roll the dough very thin (1/8 -1/10″) and cut small strips to make fettuccine.
      • You could also make lasagna noodles by ensuring the dough is rolled into a long, rectangular shape before cutting the pasta.
  4. Place your pasta batches on a lightly floured surface and dust with more flour.
    • You may want to hang the pasta on a nonstick drying rack to ensure the dough does not stick together.
  5. Next, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
    • Add a small about of olive oil to prevent the noodles from sticking.
    • Add the fresh pasta, and cook for ~3 minutes if making spaghetti.
      • Note, the cooking time may go up to 6 minutes if you make a larger type of pasta. Additionally, my family really likes al dente pasta!
  6. Finally, strain the water and cover with your favorite marinara sauce and fresh herbs.
  7. Enjoy immediately! (Please note, fresh pasta does not make for good leftovers!)
