1. Homemade Gluten-Free Pasta:


  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour

  • 3 large pastured eggs

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free flour and salt.

  2. Make a well in the center and add the eggs and olive oil.

  3. Gradually incorporate the flour into the wet ingredients until a dough forms.

  4. Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth, then cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.

  5. Roll out the dough and cut it into your desired pasta shape.

  6. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until al dente. Drain and serve with your favorite sauce.

  3. Bring the sauce to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer for at least 20-30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
