Recipe For Spelt Pasta – Easy To Make At Home

I made spelt pasta for a starter dish for Dave and I. Being high in carbohydrates this would be great for before gym, or at lunch time.

Head straight on to the recipe for Spelt Pasta ♥

When I was originally approached to take part in the Faithful to Nature organic challenge I was quite excited. The brief was to create a vegetarian dish and I already had something in mind. My idea was to make spelt pasta. Spelt is an ancient wheat having been cultivated since 5000 BC. It is now mostly farmed in Central Europe and Northern Spain. My idea was to make ravioli with a zucchini filling and a tomato based sauce. I placed the spelt flour into my basket before we left for overseas, together with some other ingredients. My voucher only came through when we got back from overseas, leaving me 4 days to complete the task. In the meantime, the spelt flour had been sold out. Seems I was not the only blogger wishing to use the ingredient. Spelt is high in protein, dietary fibre and B Vitamins.

It is also a good source of manganese, phosphorous and niacin. This flour contains moderate amounts of gluten. It is therefore suitable for baking but not for people on a gluten free diet. Making spelt pasta is a simple process of adding an egg and salt to the flour. I used my KitchenAid roller to get the pasta as thin as possible. I cut tagliatelle and served it with a roasted red pepper sauce. Have you used spelt to make pasta? What was your opinion of the result?
