Duck Egg Pasta

duck eggs make the BEST homemade pasta!

The extra protein in our lady ducks’ eggs make homemade pasta even more robust and rich. Give it a try! One thing we learned is that whole mixing on the counter top is not a good idea- just use a bowl to avoid making a giant mess. The ratio is so easy (this is for 3 servings)- 3 eggs to 2 cups white all purpose flour, a pinch of salt. Stir, knead, add more flour if needed, then plop out on a floured board or countertop. Vigorously get the sheet as thin as you can with a rolling pin, flouring your board as needed. Cut into strips that are about the same size, and drop all at once into a pot of boiling water. Stir and boil gently for 3-5 minutes, depending on how thin you got your pasta sheet, until the texture is to your liking. Dress with fresh greens, sauteed in a little olive oil, some garlic. So simple, yet fancy and delicious! Get creative with your sauces- red wine morel feta? tomato thyme and olive? The sky is the limit for your kitchen creativity!
