  3. 3. OTHMAN LOUANJLI / PAGE 3 IF THE DOUGH IS TOO WET THEN SIMPLY ADD MORE FLOUR, AND IF THE DOUGH IS TOO DRY THEN ADD MORE WATER UNTIL THE DESIRED CONSISTENCY IS CREATED. There are lots of machines and gadgets that are available for pasta-making – extruders, ca- vatelli machines and gnocchi boards, for example - yet none of these are strictly necessary. In order to make pasta, all one needs is a rolling pin, a food processor and a smooth sur- face on which the pasta can be rolled. For the ingredients there are several different reci­ pes, but either wheat flour or semolina are most commonly used. Durum wheat is typical- ly used in the South of Italy, whilst soft wheat is used in the North. To the flour, simply add water until a dough is formed, at which point the chef can add egg or olive oil before put- ting the dough in the food pro- cessor. The dough is ready as soon as it starts to come away from the sides of food processor, at which point it should be rest- ed. If the dough is too wet then simply add more flour, and if the dough is too dry then add more water until the desired consistency is created. After resting the dough, it can be rolled out and cut – after which it is ready to be cooked.
