Italians usually eat pasta by wrapping it around a fork, creating a kind of nest. The purpose of rolling the pasta around the fork is to capture other ingredients that made up the dish.

Traditionally, you also see many people using forks and spoons to taste the pasta. In other words, the spoon is used as a support to shape a bite that can be taken to the mouth in a more stable way. Although this technique is not wrong, the most common thing is to just use a fork.


After the dough has been prepared, it is time to cut it, and this cut can be made to your liking. However, if you want a standard reference, you can do it in lengths of strips that are equivalent to a finger and a half or so.

After the dough is cut, it’s time to cook it in boiling water. It is worth remembering that the appropriate amount of water is one liter for every 100 grams. It’s good to know that 100 grams is more or less equivalent to one person’s consumption, and once cooked, the dough doubles in volume.


Fresh pappardelle dough is about 2 cm wide and is made with flour, egg and salt. This cut can be done with the dough cutter, which will give more uniformity to the cut, but it can also be done manually.
