Homemade Lemon Fettuccine

Homemade pasta is so versatile in terms of colors and taste.  One of my favorite variations is lemon pasta.  Lemon pasta goes so well with numerous dishes and adds a wonderful fresh burst of lemon without being overpowering.  Enjoy!

Lemon Fettuccine Noodles

  • 2-1/4 Cups Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Water (if necessary)
  • 1 Lemon
  • Dash of Salt

Combine flour and salt in mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle of the flour.

In a small bowl put eggs, zest of 1 lemon, juice of 1 lemon and whisk lightly.

Add to the middle well of flour the egg mixture, olive oil, and water (if necessary).  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.  Make pasta into desired shape and be prepared for a taste sensation.

  1. This looks SO wonderful! I’m definitely going to give them a try today or tomorrow! I have some nice shrimp in the freezer that would just LOVE to be served with these!

    As an aside… do you ever use durum semolina in your pastas? If so, do you mix it with all-purpose?

    • Hi 🙂 Thank you so much. Let me know if you like the lemon fettuccine. That would go awesome with the shrimp! I’ve never used durum semolina in my pasta – I’ve seen it in many recipes though and read that it is good for making pasta dough. I started making pasta with one recipe and it worked, it was great, so I never tried any others.

  2. I want this so bad right now (and its only 8am). I’m imagining with roasted thyme veggies (asparagus, zucchini, cherry tomatoes) and just a little olive oil and asiago… I should go find breakfast.

    Also, this makes me sad that my mom got rid of her pasta machine all those years ago. She isn’t a big cook and I wasn’t into cooking that much yet, so to the donation pile it went. So sad now!

    • Lol … 8:00 a.m. and time for pasta! Your idea sounds great! Pasta is the one thing I can create my own recipes for. For some reason I’m not that good at coming up with other recipes on my own. That is sad that your mom’s pasta machine is gone … I’ve done that before when I’ve been in a clearing out mode and given stuff away and then sometime later I am looking for it and remember it’s gone!
