Make This Beautiful Pasta at Home (WIthout a Pasta Machine!)

Once you've had a taste of fresh homemade pasta, it's hard to go back to the store-bought stuff.

But here's a secret: Homemade pasta is incredibly simple to make, and you don't need any fancy tools or a pasta maker to make it happen. Just a rolling pin and your own two hands!

Follow my step-by-step guide to make your own fresh and colorful pasta from scratch using four ingredients or less.

Vegetable Pasta

– 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more      for rolling and dusting – 2 large eggs – 1/4 cup vegetable juice (try beet,      spinach, or carrot juice, or even      tomato paste) – 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil


Mound the flour onto your work surface and make a large well in the center. (Tip: I use my measuring cup to carve out a deep, perfect well about 5 inches in diameter.)


Crack each egg into the well, followed by the remaining ingredients in your chosen pasta recipe.


Using a fork, beat the eggs and oil (plus any herbs, vegetable juice, or squid ink, if using) until well combined.


Little by little, add the flour to the egg mixture and beat until all of it is incorporated.
