Pasta Dough

Tried Martha Stewart and Mario Batali’s Recipe. Total failure. Giving up on Martha Stewart now. First her pizza dough recipe is a waste, now her pasta dough. She’s lost her touch. Deleting both of her recipes from my blog so I don’t make the awfulness again.


4 c all purpose flour
7 eggs
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 c water


Put all ingredients in a Kitchenaid and mix on high for 10 minutes.

This develops the gluten and makes the dough stretchy.

Refrigerate for 1 hour (or use immediately).


1 small butternut squash, cut in half, seasoned with olive oil, cooked in oven 350 F for 25 min
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp white sugar
pinch salt
1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese


Mix everything together.


1. Roll out ravioli dough. Add filling. Ratio: 1/3 pasta, 2/3 filling. Brush sides of filling with water or egg. Top with second layer of pasta. Press down like when making hand pies. Cut into nice clean square shape.

2. Boil 4 minutes.

3. Enjoy with pesto sauce.
