Making Colorful Pasta At Home

How to make colorful pasta at home!I'm still loving homemade pasta. You won't see me turn my nose up to any pasta, but homemade is so fresh and delicious! Plus, I love how you can spice it up to add your favorite flavors or colors.Homemade pesto ravioliI really love this colorful pasta that my sister used a few weeks ago. And it got me thinking that it might be fun to start experimenting with making my own multicolored noodles. I decided to make a simple pesto and cheese ravioli with half green noodles. 🙂Making colorful pasta at home is easyFirst I made two different pasta doughs, one regular and one green. Each batch was made with 3 eggs and 2 cups of flour. I added a little water as I kneaded the dough if it seemed too crumbly. For the green color, I added food dye to the eggs before mixing. You could also use vegetable juice for color, like I did hereMaking colorful pasta is easy!I used the attachments from my KitchenAid mixer to roll out the dough. To see a full tutorial on how to roll out pasta check here. Once you have both colors rolled out, cut each strip in half and mix the colors up. Press the edges together lightly and feed it through the attachment (or use a rolling pin) to smooth it out.Making homemade ravioliI used my new ravioli attachment to fill and shape the pasta. My filling was simply 1 cup ricotta cheese with 1 tablespoon pesto and 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese mixed in. I'm still experimenting and working on my ravioli rolling skills. 🙂How to make ravioliNow we are ready to cook our pasta! Fill a pot with enough water so the ravioli can easily move around while they are cooking. Add a few teaspoons of salt to the water and bring to a boil. Cook the ravioli for 4-5 minutes. Remove one and cut through it to check if they are done.How to make homemade ravioliI served mine with a little more pesto and olive oil drizzled over them. I topped it with fresh bell peppers, Parmesan cheese and few marinated olivesHomemade cheese ravioliHave fun making your own colorful pastas! xo. Emma

  • Didn’t have quite as fancy tools as you did so the making process was kind of crazy/long, but man is this recipe killer! SO GOOD. SO. GOOD. I used beet juice as part of a second dough and it worked lovely. Here’s a picture of how they turned out: http://instagram.com/p/Yovk_CKzix/

  • I’ve been making homemade pasta for years! The best way to add color is too add a vegetable paste (spinach, aragula, beet, tomato, octopus ink…)to your dough when you mix it! Not only it adds color, but it also adds taste and vitamins. To my taste, it sounds a lot better than food coloring!

  • I make pasta all the time, will be trying it coloured next time!

  • A trick my friend told me is to use as many eggs as there are people eating the meal. He also used a recipe for the flour amount and added water until it reached a nice consistency — for those of you who like to eyeball things 🙂

  • I love home made pasta as well, tastes way better and is way healthier. I will definately try this! I got a great one as well, found on pinterest http://www.purevege.com/2012/04/beet-dumplings.html

    I made these with our own grown beets from our vegetable garden, you can freeze them really well as well! I ate them with a mushroom cream sauce or any creamy sauce that is mild will do great, or… We have philadelphia cream cheese with herbs, just let it melt over it! yum!!!!

  • I’ve never thought this about ravioli before, but yours are beautiful.
