Since I posted pictures on instagram showing my homemade gluten free pasta I have had so many requests for the recipe.

I actually have a couple of recipes I use but this one was simply to use up what flours I had in my cupboard. It is an easy recipe but I do find using a food processor really helps. You don’t have to have a pasta machine – you can simply roll out the pasta to thin strips instead. Watch our video for a detailed explanation of how to make it.

Homemade Gluten Free Pasta


Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 3-4 minutes


What’s Good About It?

Homemade pasta is incredibly versatile – you do not need a pasta machine but it helps. Use it for a range of dishes. You can flavour the pasta with herbs if wished.

  2. Place the dry ingredients in a food processor and brief mix to combine.
  3. Add the eggs and oil and process until the mixture comes together to form a stiff dough.
  4. Lightly dust a work surface with gluten free flour.
  5. Take small pieces of the dough and run them through a pasta machine. Gradually alter the settings to create thinner pasta strips – cut these as wish or run them through the cutters to create tagliatelle.
  6. Hang the pasta to dry if strips or roll them into little circles.
  7. These can be kept in a sealed container for several days if wished.
  8. To cook tagliatelle bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Drop in the pasta and cook for 1-2 minutes only. Drain well then serve.

Did You Know?

Adding the custard powder to the pasta gives the pasta more colour and being a starch also helps to bind the dough together.
