Default Re: Can Caputo flour be used to make pasta

Could I use this flour to make egg pasta? Or should I get the caputo pasta flour. I am not thinking of mixing flours.

You can definitely use the Caputo Tipo 00 for fresh egg-based pasta. Here is a link to Kyle's recipe on italianfood.about.com -- which calls for Tipo 00. As he says, making fresh pasta tastes great and is a lot of fun.

One side note, we cannot get Caputo Durum semolina in the U.S., so you have to go for a domestic flour for that type of pasta.

Let us know how it goes. Here's the recipe.

Home Made Pasta

Great link. I've never done homemade pasta. I've had the Caputo, now I have a tried recipe. James, any other uses for the Caputo other than the obvious?

Hmmm.

Baguette, schiacciata, 50% of a Pugliese, focaccia, Belgian waffles, crepes (breakfast and lunch) ...

Thanks,

I ordered some flour yesterday and plan to make pizza. I have made egg pasta many times and I will try it with this flour.

I'll make some other breads too.

Thanks for the help.
