Pasta-Making FAQs

What is 00 flour?

The "00" primarily refers to the grind size of the flour. Type 00 ("double zero") flour is an extremely finely-ground Italian-style flour that is super white in color because almost all of the wheat's bran and germ have been removed during milling.

Do I really need a pasta machine?

Absolutely not! Get out your rolling pin, or any other cylindrical household item you might have (like a wine bottle, broomstick, or a round glass jar - just be sure to clean it well first) and roll out your dough by hand.
