Gluten Free Pasta

We are putting my middle son on a gluten restricted diet because of some tummy and growth issues. I realized that all of us eating as GF as possible will make it easier on him as well so my first attempt was GF pasta. I am extremely happy with how well it turned out!!! It is an expensive start up, but overall cheaper than buying premade GF pasta at the store.

Stir up or sift your ingredients first and MEASURE VERY CAREFULLY

1 cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup millet flour
2/3 cup tapioca starch
3 TB potato starch(NOT potato flour!)
2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp sea salt
2 TB olive oil
3 large eggs
1 TB water

Place dry ingredients in a mixer and blend well. Hand stir if necessary, you want to avoid pockets of ingredients.

Add in olive oil, then eggs 1 at a time. Mix well.

Add in water, slowly until it just holds together.

Proceed with your pasta making equipment per manufacturers instructions.

You can also roll it thin and cut it into strips by hand if you dont have a pasta machine...

Bring pot of salted water to a boil and drop in fresh pasta, boil 3-4 minutes or until your desired firmness.(more if you have allowed it to dry at all)

Add to any dish you please!!

I made my baked pasta and smoked sausage(with large macaroni in place of the shells)
