In this article I will explain generally how pasta is made. Pasta is usually called spaghetti, macaroni and so on.
The simplest ingredients to make pasta are flour and water. Some cooks use eggs and wheat flour, some also use different types of flour that is mixed together with eggs and a pinch of salt.
A small amount of water is mixed with the flour to form a workable dough. The dough is then left to rest for about 20 mins to make it more workable.
Thereafter the dough is now cut into various pasta shapes including the popular thin long strand spaghetti shapes. The cutting and shaping can be done with a pasta cutting and shaping machine or by hand.
After cutting/ shaping, the pasta is ready to cook. Or it can be left to dry at room temperature for future use.
