Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients
 
 

  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 150 g cream cheese 5.3oz
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 ½ tablespoons psyllium husk powder 35g

Instructions
 

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 150°C.
  • Place all the ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until a thick paste forms. Leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Divide the batter in half, and using a silicone spatula, spread onto a large piece of baking paper into a thin layer (it is a sticky, pasty batter). Cover with another sheet of paper and use a rolling pin to roll a 20cm x 40cm rectangle (it doesn’t have to be perfect, just as long as the dough is about 1-2mm thick). Lift onto a large baking tray, leaving the top sheet of baking paper in place. Repeat with the remaining half.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the pasta has set. Remove the top sheet of baking paper and leave to cool on the tray for 1-2 minutes. Roll the pasta from the short end (for long pasta strands). Use a sharp knife to cut into ribbons. Alternatively, use the fettuccine setting on a pasta cutter.
  • To heat the pasta, add to the warm sauce of choice in the last couple of minutes to heat through. The pasta does not need to be cooked in boiling water.

THERMAL METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 150°C.
  • Place all the ingredients into the mixer; mix 20 sec/speed 5. Rest for 5 minutes. Follow from step 3 above.

AIR FRYER METHOD

  • Prepare the pasta as above but roll it out to fit within your air fryer. Do two or more batches as needed. Bake at 150°C for 4-5 minutes. Allow to cool before rolling and cutting as above.

I will show you how to make it both in a food processor (Thermomix®) and in a bowl with no mixer at all.
Learn all about the ingredients, more ways to cut or use the pasta as well as see it rolled out, baked and cut to preferred shape with more in-depth instructions.
Join us at 365 today. This cooking class is available to both Monthly Members and Annual Members.
INGREDIENTS
The eggs should be at room temperature to avoid any “eggy-taste” to the pasta.
Salt and apple cider vinegar is needed to help strengthen the pasta.
Psyllium husk powder is essential for thickening. Some psyllium husk powders can turn purple but will not affect the taste. I use the NOW brand for a yellow/white pasta.
No substitutes were tested in place of the ingredients listed.
HOW TO USE KETO PASTA NOODLES
To cook for pasta sauce recipe just add the egg noodles to your sauce just before serving. No boiling or water needed. If making a keto lasagna or similar just use the sliced pasta directly into the dish after it has been pre-baked. The pasta only need 1-2 minutes cooking time to heat through.
Make the flavoured pasta recipes given and toss through any stir-fries, fresh tomato passata or cream for easy midweek meals.
The pasta can be mixed in a bowl by hand if needed.
Store baked pasta in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Roll through a pasta roller and cutter after baking (if you want). Make in bulk and store in the fridge or freezer.
