easy to make Pasta!
- 1 cup of waterb
- 1 cup flour
- 3 eggs
- ½ teaspoon of salt
8 inch non-stick frying pan. Olive oil & wax paper, cut
wax paper in 6 inch squares.
Mix together Flour and salt. Then add your eggs, and water.
Whisk together until you achieve a thin batter consistency.
Make sure there are zero lumps. I like to use a fork to
mix it all together.
Heat your pan on the stove on medium. Take about a teaspoon of oil onto a paper towel and grease the pan, or lightly spray with Pam,wipe off any excess on the pan. We just want to make sure the batter doesn't stick.
With a small ladle, add about ¼ cup of the batter to the pan, making sure that the batter fully lines the bottom of the pan by twisting the pan with your wrist in a back and forth motion. Once you see the edges have become a skin like texture, it is time to flip the shell (I use a butter knife to flip, by gently getting under an edge and flipping using my hand, now cook on the other side about 20 seconds. Remove from pan and place on wax paper, add another piece of wax paper to separate each shell. Let cool before filling. You can freeze these up to one week or refrigerate for 2 days before adding in the filling.
This will make approx. 12-14 manicotti
For the filling use Ricotta, Salt/Pepper, grated cheese and shredded mozzarella. Do not over stuff! Use the ricotta as a glue when you fold the manicotti.
