Making your own pasta might sound like a big undertaking, but all it requires is semolina flour, water, salt, and less than an hour of your time! Semolina is a coarse, nutty flour made from durum wheat, rather than the common wheat used to make all purpose flour. It is perfect for making pasta, because its higher gluten content helps the pasta keep its shape while cooking. This dough can be used to make traditional shapes, from orecchiette, ziti and cavatelli! Homemade, fresh pasta provides an excellent base for a variety of toppings and sauces, or use it to round out soups to make a more filling meal.


2 cups semolina flour

¼ tsp salt

½ cup + 2 Tbsp water (and more as needed)


  • 1. Set up your Vidiem Mixer-Grinder by locking the gear adapter onto the motor base and locking the bowl attachment onto the adapter.
  • 2. Add the semolina flour, salt, and water to the bowl
  • 3. Secure the lid and pulse a few times to combine.
  • 4. Blend on speed 1 until the dough comes together and forms a ball. If it is too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • 5. Knead for 15 seconds on speed 1.
  • 6. Place the dough in a bowl, cover with a clean towel, and rest for 30 minutes.
  • 7. Form into desired shapes and cook in boiling, salted water for 6-7 minutes (depending on thickness).
