Overview

If you suffer from celiac disease or you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, you are probably unable to eat regular pasta. If you keep this recipe handy, however, you can take your own fresh gluten-free pasta with you to dinners where pasta is served.

Step 1

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl, and place wet ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients thoroughly.

Step 2

Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Knead with your hands until thoroughly mixed.

Step 3

Form the dough into a ball and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Place the ball of dough in the refrigerator.

Step 4

Flour a hard surface--a tabletop or marble counter--with sweet rice flour. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough very thin so that it is nearly translucent.

Step 5

Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into small, long pieces. The pieces don't have to be perfect. If you have one, you can roll the dough through a pasta machine instead of cutting by hand.

Step 6

Store the cut dough, covered, at room temperature (the microwave is a good place) until you are ready to cook it. Boil for two to three minutes.
