I’ve wanted to make fettuccine for a few weeks and had been thinking about lemon garlic basil fettuccine. Perfect – now I could use up the last of my basil in the garden and satisfy my pasta making obsession at the same time. This is one of the best fettuccine noodles I have ever tasted! Each bite was a taste sensation bursting with fresh lemon and a subtle hint of garlic and basil.
Lemon Garlic Basil Fettuccine
- 2-1/4 cups flour
- Dash of Salt
- 3 eggs
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 3-4 Tablespoons water
- 3 cloves garlic peeled
- Zest from 1 lemon
- ¼ Cup basil
Combine flour and salt in mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle of the flour. In a food processor chop garlic and basil.
Combine eggs, olive oil, water, garlic, lemon zest and basil and whisk. Add to the middle well of flour.
Add flour or extra water to dough as needed – consistency should not be sticky. With beater attachment, beat on low for 1 minute. Switch to dough hook and mix for 6 minutes. Take dough and cover in plastic wrap and let rest for at least 10 minutes.
Run through the pasta press several times to desired thickness.
Cut into fettuccine noodles.
Be prepared to taste the best fettuccine you ever had! Enjoy!
Homemade pasta, impressive! I’ve never had homemade pasta but I want to so bad b/c I’m sure it’s a million times better than storebought. I just might have to give this a try!
Thank you. If you have a Kitchenaid mixer with the pasta attachment, making pasta is a breeze! Fettuccine noodles are quick to make whereas the ravioli is more time consuming. You can do it by hand also, it will just take longer. Give it a try – you’ll never want store bought noodles again!

I’ve made homemade pasta about three times now and loved it. It’s always been a little difficult, though, since I don’t have any pasta-making tools and have to do everything by hand. I’ve thought about buying a pasta roller, but decided not to for whatever reason.
Now, after seeing all of your beautiful raviolis and pasta dishes, I’m double-guessing myself… I want to make homemade pasta all the time!
I say go for it! Go get yourself a pasta roller and make life easy – you’ll be loving your homemade pasta all the more!
