Whole spelt pasta – even without a pasta machine

Whole spelt pasta – even without a pasta machine

Have you ever made your own pasta? This also works like clockwork with the home-ground flour from our Salzburg grain mills! One of our customers has already tried this and shared the “standard pasta recipe” with us.

Fresh, homemade pasta has it all and, unlike store-bought pasta, has a relatively short cooking time. What also makes homemade pasta special is that you can vary the recipe according to your mood: for example, you can color the pasta – with beetroot or spinach. Also, you can always vary the flavor a bit and thus bring a little variety purely.

Whole spelt pasta

If you are also keen to experiment and take your time, here is a whole spelt pasta recipe for you to use as a basis for your “culinary experiments”:


  • (on each) 100 g whole spelt flour (ground as finely as possible with our Salzburg grain mills; the groats can also be left in the flour and processed as well)
  • (comes) 1 egg
  • Water according to discretion (approx. 1 tbsp.)

Here’s how it works:

So, depending on how large the amount of pasta should be, you can also take, for example, 300 g whole spelt flour and accordingly 3 eggs. Adds the two ingredients together. If you add water, be careful to use less at first. Subsequently, the dough should be kneaded nicely into a smooth, homogeneous mass. Let it rest for a while after that.

If you have a pasta machine at home, use it, but note that the pasta should not be too thin. If this is the case, the noodles may tear and you may only have small “shreds” of noodles. Ribbon noodles are advantageous because their width makes them more “stable”.

If you do not have a pasta machine, it is best to roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Now you can cut strips about 1.5 cm wide with a knife or a pizza cutter. If you are more daring, you can also cut thinner strips.

Now bring water (with a little salt) to a boil in a pot. Homemade whole spelt pasta is cooked quite quickly – after about 6 minutes. However, before you take the noodles out of the water, make sure that they are really cooked.

With which sauce you enjoy your spelt wholemeal pasta, there are of course no limits.

Have fun experimenting!
