15 Homemade Pasta Recipes

I could tell you that I love pasta, but that is not a particularly news-worthy statement. Everyone loves pasta.

Have you ever made your own pasta, though? If you are ever bored or looking for a new culinary adventure, then making your own pasta is a great way to have some fun in the kitchen and eat delicious food simultaneously.

Homemade pasta is infinitely more delicious than regular pasta and is not that hard to make! However, it can seem intimidating, and it definitely takes more time than throwing some pasta in a pot. Still, even the not-so-kitchen-savvy folks can easily attempt these homemade pasta recipes.

So, next time you have some time off, are looking for a Sunday activity, or an excuse for a fancy dinner, try one of these homemade pasta recipes and ENJOY!

If you decide to use a machine or pasta attachment for any of these recipes, then I would be remiss if I didn’t plug my all-time favorite mixer, the one that is sitting on my countertop right now: the Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. You can buy the pasta attachment to make homemade pasta easily and quickly. (FYI: that is an affiliate link, so I get a commission if you use that link to buy anything- at no extra cost to you. See details here).

Have fun making these homemade pasta recipes, and have even more fun eating them! Bon Appetit!
