It just arrived chez moi. Some 00 Caputo flour. Time to munch out on some real stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Double 00 made into pasta.
It sounds as if I should have purchased some semolina in addition to the 00 flour. And like anything else, recipes for pasta as far as flour is concerned are all over the place.
@kokopuffs , I often use the caputo semolina for pasta. If I'm going to dry, I use straight semolina. Some pastas I put maybe half and half.
Yesterday I went 75% )) 25% semolina to make Hatch chili lasagna sheets. I prefer it because it stands up to longer cooking..... Those % are not accurate. I use whatever vessel is in reach.
@BrianShaw and @panini: either spagetti (round and not flat) or fettucini. Sounds like a learning curve awaits me.
What cut of pasta?
BTW, I'm really curious to hear the final analysis. I make pasta with AP and never had a complaint so never tried 00. I know it makes a diff in pizza dough but...
When I'm done, if I see any hint of moisture(usually darker in color) I toss in a little semolina/flour and spread it out on a big wooden board I have.
