Make Your Own Gluten-Free Pasta

by | Updated: December 3rd, 2016

A bag of gluten-free pasta is perfect when you just don’t have the time and energy to cook. (In fact, it’s one of my go-to meals for busy nights!)

But just like with everything else, nothing beats the taste of homemade. And here’s a bit of news that might surprise you – homemade pasta is a whole lot easier to make than you think!

You’ll need:


1. Combine flour, egg, egg yolks, salt, xanthan gum, olive oil and butter in a mixing bowl or food processor – mix well.

2. Add water in small increments, continue mixing until it reaches a dough-y texture.

3. Remove dough and place on a floured surface, then divide into 8 equal parts.

4. Roll out each piece of dough to 1/8″ thickness, then use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut the pasta into the shape of your choice. (Linguini is the easiest!)

Voila, you have just made your very own gluten-free pasta! Boil up a large pot of water and cook for 8-12 minutes or until it reaches the desired texture.

When you’re done cooking, top your creation with your favorite pasta sauce or pesto! (Then, invite me over – because all this talk about pasta has made me starving!)
