FoodNetwork.com's food processor pasta dough, Epicurious.com's food-processor pasta dough and TheKitchn.com's instructions for making pasta in the food processor are some recipes for making pasta in a food processor. A food processor mixes and kneads the dough quickly and efficiently.
To make Epicurious' food-processor pasta dough, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3 large eggs, 1 teaspoon water, 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon salt in the food processor. Blend all ingredients until the mixture just begins to form a ball. Remove the dough from the food processor, and knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. Use a pasta roller to shape the dough, or cut it by hand. The dough may also be made ahead and refrigerated for up to 1 day.
For Food Network's food processor pasta dough, place 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 2 lightly beaten eggs and 1 tablespoon olive oil in the processor. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons water and blend until the mixture just forms a ball. Add a few drops more water if the dough is too dry. Once the dough forms a ball, blend for 15 additional seconds to knead it. Let the dough stand under an inverted bowl for 1 hour, then roll it out using a pasta machine or by hand.
