How to Cook Fresh Red Pepper Pasta Dough

  1. Add the chopped bell pepper in a blender with a pinch of salt. Blend them.
  2. Crack the egg in a large bowl and add the bell pepper mixture. Add olive oil and a pinch of salt.
  3. Pour the flour and whisk the egg with a fork, until it’s incorporated into the flour and you get a sticky dough.
  4. Add flour on your working surface and knead the dough into a ball, for about 3-4 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour. Knead it until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  5. Wrap it in plastic foil and refrigerate it for the next 15 minutes.
  6. Add a touch of flour on your working surface. Grab the dough and level it with a rolling pin until it is very thin.
  7. Afterwards, knead the dough using the pasta maker, making it as thin as you like.
  8. Attach the noodle-cutting attachment according to your manual’s instructions. Once the thin noodles are released from the pasta maker, catch them with your hands. Cut them if they are too long.
  9. Add a small amount of flour on them so they don’t stick together.
  10. Choose your favorite pasta recipe and cook it!
