  1. 500 g soft-wheat flour
  2. 5 eggs
  3. a small amount of water
  4. 1 tablespoon of concentrated tomato paste
Preparing the dough
  1. Create a well with the flour, in a bowl; pour the eggs, water and 1 tablespoon of concentrated tomato paste in the middle
  2. Mix the flour, eggs, water and tomato with a fork and knead the dough
  3. Keep kneading the dough by hand until it is smooth and sticks together. If the dough is too dry, add some water, if it is too soft add some flour
  4. Take the dough out of the bowl and place it on lightly floured table. Continue, if necessary, to knead the dough by hand; then, cut it into four pieces.
Preparing the sheet
  1. Set the Atlas Pasta Machine thickness-adjustment to 0 and pass one of the four pieces of dough through the smooth rollers. If you are using the 3 Facile mixer, fit the Sfoglia 150 accessory with smooth rollers to the mixer
  2. Lightly dust both sides of the sheet of pasta with flour and fold it in half. Feed the sheet of pasta back through the smooth rollers again: repeat these operations several times until the sheet of pasta has a long and regular shape
  3. Cut the resulting sheet into two pieces, and sprinkle them lightly with flour on both sides
  4. Set the thickness-adjustment to 1 and pass the sheet through just once; then, set the thickness-adjustment to 2 and pass the sheet through once more; then, set the thickness-adjustment to 3, and so forth until you achieve the required thickness
  5. Fit to the Atlas pasta machine or to the Mixer, if you are using the 3 Facile mixer, the selected cutting accessory and pass the sheet through the cutting rollers to achieve the required paste shape
  6. (No cutting accessories can be assembled on the Ampia pasta machine)
  7. Lastly, cook the pasta that you have made, or store it once you have left it to dry on our Tacapasta accessory for at least one hour.
  1. Alternatives: Instead of using 500 g of soft-wheat flour: 250 g of superfine flour and 250 g of durum wheat flour
  2. Instead of 5 eggs: 250 ml of water
  3. Tips Fresh Pasta
  4. • Do not use cold eggs straight from the fridge
  5. • Do not add salt in the preparation of the dough
  6. • The dough is the perfect consistency when it does not stick to your fingers
  7. • The recommended thickness of the dough sheet for fettuccine is 5 on the thickness-adjustment
  8. • The recommended thickness of the dough sheet for tagliolini is 7 on the thickness-adjustment The thinnest pasta sheet thickness is achieved by setting the machine on 9 and feeding the sheet of pasta through twice
  9. • If the rollers are not able to cut the sheet it means that the dough is too soft. Add flour
  10. • If the dough is too dry the rollers will not be able to take it in. Add water
  11. • Cook the pasta in a large amount of hot water (4 litres for 1/2 kg of pasta)
