Gluten Free Pasta Recipe


Have I got a treat for you!  How about the easiest gluten free pasta recipe ever?

I know so many of you might be scared to make fresh homemade pasta, but guys…it is SOOO easy!  For real.  When you take out the rest time, the active time preparing this pasta is under 15 minutes.

The dough takes literally 1 minute to make in the food processor. Allow the dough to rest for 1 hour at room temperature.  It will be much easier to work with after it rests.  When the dough is complete it should look something like this.

Roll Dough Out Super Thin


After you allow the dough to rest for an hour (this is an important step with gluten free cooking), then you are ready to roll it out.

Be sure to roll it out as thin as you can.  The thinner the better.  Don’t worry, the dough won’t fall apart, it is very elastic! This is how thin you want it.

Cut Pasta Into Desired Shapes or Strips


Now on a floured surface, simple roll out the dough and with a pizza cutter and cut your pasta into your desired shape. I am not picky here, I just quickly cut out strips.

Again, don’t spend to much time on this, simply slice and go.

Boil For 4 Minutes In Salted Water


Next you boil a pot of heavily salted water.  There is no salt in the pasta dough, so it is important to heavily salt your water.  I added about 1 tablespoon of salt to the water.

Drop the pasta into the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes or until tender. Fresh pasta cooks a lot faster then dried pasta.  Do not overcook the pasta!

Be careful not to put to much pasta into the pot.  I did mine in 3 batches. Certainly you could use a larger pot and boil it all at once, I just prefer to do it in batches.

Drain and Add A Bit of Olive Oil


Remove pasta with a slotted spoon and drain well.  I do not rinse pasta.  The sauce will stick better to the pasta if you do not rinse the pasta.

Feel free to add a little olive oil or butter to prevent sticking.  Place on a plate or platter. Notice how much the pasta swells up.  This is normal, reminds me of a fettuccine pasta.

Serve Hot With Favorite Sauce


Now that wasn’t hard was it?  Now top with your favorite sauce (mine in the picture is actually a roasted red pepper sauce) and serve immediately.

I promise you, you will wonder why you have waited so long to make this gluten free pasta recipe…it is that good!  Enjoy!

  1. In a food processor, add the all purpose flour and xanthan gum and pulse several times.
  2. Add in egg and egg yolks and pulse until combine. Mixture will be crumbly.
  3. Add in water and run food processor until sticky dough forms (about 10 seconds).

  6. Allow the dough to rest at room temperature for an hour. Do not skip this step. The dough will be so much easier to work with.

    How would you make this recipe if you can’t have eggs or gluten?

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Well we have the gluten covered, not sure how this would work without eggs. You could try 2 tbsp water + 1 tbsp oil + 2 tsp baking powder per egg and see if that works. I have NOT tested this method however. If you try it, please let us know how it turns out!
