{Video} How to Make Spaghetti with KitchenAid

Have you ever made fresh homemade pasta? Making spaghetti at home is actually really easy. It takes a little time and patience, and within a half hour you’ll have a batch of fresh pasta completed that will knock your socks off. Thankfully I also have KitchenAid to thank! They have the most amazing pasta attachments. I will be honest… if it wasn’t for their pasta attachments I would probably not be making pasta. Simple to use and easy to clean–how I like stuff.

I invite you to watch my video and see for yourself just how easy it is to make Spaghetti! 

So, what do you think… easy, right? Stop being scared. Break out of your comfort zones and get making some new stuff! I’ve said it multiple times this year… 2013 is the year I’m pushing my limits. I mean heck, just last month I was baking fresh Italian Bread in my kitchen… and at that same time I was making spaghetti and then my husband, neighbor, and I feasted on the most delightful and self-satisfying meal I’ve made to date. Fresh pasta with homemade bolognese sauce, and freshly baked Italian Bread. At that point I realized I made an entire meal from scratch. No boxed pasta, no store bough bakery bread, and definitely no jarred sauce. 100% all me. And then my husband bursted my bubble when he informed me that the salad was not 100% homemade. In all the glory I completely failed to cut spring mix from the garden; however, I get some credit… I picked a few vine ripe cherry tomatoes. But you get the point. The meal was made by my own two hands. Not many people can have that caliber of bragging rights.

I can’t wait to have family in town so I can cook the most delicious Spaghetti Bolognese they have ever tasted! (Don’t worry–one of these days I’ll share my bolognese recipe with the world.) Not to mention make my entire meal from scratch. I’m still new to making spaghetti and pasta in general. I’ve made multiple batches now and each time improving on my newly found pasta-making skills! Be prepared to make a few batches at first just to learn how to make the pasta. The consistency of the dough has to be just right. Too sticky and it doesn’t do well with the machine. Too dry and the dough crumbles apart and you won’t get the pasta texture and consistency you were looking for.

How to Make Spaghetti with KitchenAid

Yield: 1-1/4 lbs.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup water *start with 2 tablespoons

Directions:

Making the Spaghetti Dough:
    1. In the stand mixer bowl, place the eggs, flour, salt and 2 tablespoons of water. Using the flat beater, attach it to the bowl and mix the ingredients on speed 2 for 30 seconds.
    2. Remove the flat beater and replace it with the dough hook. Turn the dough on to speed 2 and let it knead for 2 minutes. At this time if the mixture looks too dry add 1 tablespoon of water at a time.
    3. Remove the dough from the bowl and knew with your hands for 1-2 minutes. Form the dough into a ball, place plastic wrap over the top of the dough, and let it rest for 20 minutes.
Rolling the Spaghetti:
    1. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Attach the Pasta Sheet Roller attachment to you stand mixer. Take 1 of the 4 pieces of dough and flatten it until its about a half-inch thick. Set the Pasta Sheet Roller to setting 1 and your stand mixer to Speed 2/4 and begin to carefully feed the dough through the attachment. Once this is done you'll want to fold the dough in half and then half again. Make sure it fits in the top of the attachment. Then run it through the Pasta Sheet Roller again. Next, move your Pasta Sheet Roller to setting 2 and then carefully run the dough through. Repeat this moving the setting all the way up to 5 until you have a thin sheet of pasta. *I typically cut the pasta sheet in half by setting 2 or 3-- it is much easier to work with. Once you have 2 sheets of pasta, remove the Pasta Sheet Roller and add the Spaghetti attachment to the stand mixer. Place the mixer on Speed 2 and carefully begin to feed the sheet of pasta through the attachment.
    2. Once you have spaghetti twirl it into a "nest". Repeat these steps until all of your dough has been transformed into spaghetti.
Cook the Spaghetti:
  1. Cook the spaghetti in a pot of boiling water with 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of olive oil for 3-4 minutes or until al dente.

    Very nice post, looks wonderful. You should be proud bread pasta and sauce in one meal! Not everyone gets to eat like that at home 🙂

      Thanks Terri–I’m super proud of my recent accomplishments!

    I love making homemade pasta. It’s very rewarding and much more tasty! 🙂

    • Katie replied on April 15th, 2013 at 7:34 am

      Thanks Addie–yah I can see myself making homemade pasta for “special” meals!

    Hi! Thank you so much for the great guide & video on making pasta with your Kitchen Aid mixer! I’m very excited to try it. Just curious, though – can you freeze the pasta once it is made (prior to cooking)? If so, how would you recommend storing it (what type of packaging and for how long can it be kept)? Thanks!

    • Katie replied on April 15th, 2013 at 7:33 am

      Hi Mai, thanks for stopping by Katie’s Cucina. I did freeze a few batches. Per KitchenAid booklet that comes with the pasta attachments they recommend drying out the pasta for one hour. Then wrapping in nest and placing in a freezer bag. I found that when I defrosted the pasta and then cooked it–it turned out fine. When I placed the frozen pasta in the hot boiling water it all cooked together. I like to keep food in my freezer for no longer than 3 months. My pasta made it two weeks in the freezer before I couldn’t resist to cook it! Good luck!

    I really need to get that attachment! I love it! Loved the video too, you make it look so easy! I’ve always wanted to make homemade pasta!

    • Katie replied on April 13th, 2013 at 9:08 am

      Thanks Angie! It is! After getting the hang of making homemade pasta it’s so easy

  6. Lesley posted on April 12, 2013 at 6:37 am (#)

    It looks great. If your not cooking straight away won,t the spaghetti stick together? KR lesley

    • Katie replied on April 15th, 2013 at 7:29 am

      Hi Lesley, thanks for stopping by and reading Katie’s Cucina. I did dry my pasta nest out and then freeze them. I’m still newish to pasta making. I found that when I defrosted my noodles I didn’t have any sticking together. When I through them from the freezer into the boiling water they all stuck together. Hope this helps!

    I’ve made ravioli a few times and it’s just incredible. I love making a whole meal from scratch!

    • Katie replied on April 15th, 2013 at 7:29 am

      Ashley–ravioli’s are my next big thing to tackle!

      • gloria replied on January 22nd, 2014 at 3:52 pm

        Did you try the ravioli yet, and if so, did you make a video for it?

        • Katie replied on January 23rd, 2014 at 2:32 pm

          Hi Gloria! I have not tried the ravioli attachment yet. When I do I will make a video for sure! 🙂

    Great tutorial 🙂 homemade pasta is the best!

    Homemade pasta just can’t be beat. This is great, Katie!

    • Katie replied on April 16th, 2013 at 3:02 pm

      Thanks Cassie!

    Hi, great tutorial. The tip for using more water was the best. I want to know when’s the best time to freeze the pasta. I want to make it for my granddaughters that live 4 hours away. I am not sure if I refrigerate and keep cold until I get there then make the pasta or make the pasta roll it out with attachments and refrigerate.

    • Katie replied on June 20th, 2014 at 7:05 am

      Hi Chris, I would cook the pasta, refrigerate (put on ice during your drive) and then reheat while at your grand daughters house. I have not had any luck freezing the raw dough to date. Hope that helps. Happy Cooking!

  11. Chris posted on June 19, 2014 at 8:16 pm (#)

    yes I was asking about how and when to freeze the pasta

  12. Jackie posted on February 23, 2015 at 7:13 pm (#)

    I made the spaghetti noodles for the first and did everything the recipe called for.  When finished, I nested them as you advised.  I didn’t start my water for  the noodles until then so the spaghetti noodles sat nested for about 30 min.  When I dropped the nest into water, the noodles did not separate.  Instead they just became a glumpy mess.  Then I tried to un-nest the remaining noodles prior to placing them in the water.  What a mess.  The taste was good but I’m certain that I did something wrong.  Your advise please

    • Katie replied on February 25th, 2015 at 3:11 pm

      Hi Jackie–so sorry that your pasta didn’t turn out right. Next time you go to make the pasta have your water ready and cook them immediately. I’ve never waited to cook my pasta. So if you are going to wait to cook the pasta maybe I wouldn’t nest them… just lay them flat. Hope that helps!

    I was looking to find out how to make homemade Spaghetti because I just received my first ever KitchenAid mixer today and I saw your channel on youtube and you made this look so easy to make now I just have to try it I have never made much of anything homemade so I am working up to making more things homemade So thank you for posting your videos on youtube

    • Katie replied on December 12th, 2017 at 2:22 pm

      Thanks Mark! Honestly–if you have the time you can make it! Making pasta is really easy and I sadly haven’t made fresh pasta in forever. Your inspiring me to roll up my sleeves and make fresh pasta again soon!

  14. Ticia Messing posted on December 29, 2018 at 11:15 am (#)

    THANK YOU! Your recipe explains why my attempt following the recipe from the kitchenaid booklet didn’t work. They don’t have you add anywhere near enough water. I’m going to try your version Later on.

    • Katie replied on January 2nd, 2019 at 8:40 pm

      Hi Ticia, so glad I could help answer the missing answer to your question. Have fun making pasta!

  15. Donna Huff posted on December 29, 2018 at 4:39 pm (#)

    Katie
    Just got my kitchen aid mixer for Christmas. I gave my husband my wishlist. I got the pasta attachments by accident. As soon as I knew I was getting them I started watching your video. Today (Dec 2018) I watched you again and I MADE PASTA!  Thank you so much. As soon as I made it I cooked it as you instructed. Thank you so much. The pasta was awesome.

    • Katie replied on January 2nd, 2019 at 8:39 pm

      Donna, I’m so happy to hear this! Have so much fun making food with your mixer and delicious pasta! You should try this recipe for Lemon Bruschetta Pasta with Grilled Chicken. Compliments the fresh pasta perfectly.

    Tried this recipe and it was delicious!!

    • Katie replied on February 18th, 2019 at 10:48 pm

      Thanks Andrea! Glad you enjoyed the pasta!

    I loved your blog so much I immediately went to the Kitchen Aid website to order a set. I have the old manual crank type pasta machine and use it often, but as you must know it is difficult at best. Unfortunately, after I put the attachments into my cart and proceeded to check out, the price was not the sale price with over $100 more. I have to wait to discuss this with them after 8 a.m. but not leaving a very good taste in my mouth!

    • Katie replied on February 18th, 2019 at 10:48 pm

      Hi Lucille, thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I’m glad you enjoy my blog. I’m sorry to hear about the price discrepancy. Hopefully, KitchenAid was able to assist you.
