Homemade Pasta with Sourdough Discard


The time has come and my husband who loves pasta more than me finally bought a pasta maker!

And of course, I wanted to sneak in some of my sourdough discard.

Pasta came out so delicious, I am making another batch 😋


  • 125g all purpose flour
  • 125g semolina flour
  • 6 egg yolks (or 2 large eggs )
  • 60g sourdough discard
  • 1/2 tsp of olive oil


  • Sift the flour on the clean work surface, make a hollow, add the yolks( or eggs) sourdough discard.
  • Use a fork to whisk yolks and discard into a flour.
  • Sprinkle olive oil on top of the mixture and with help of your hands start working with the dough.
  • The dough will feel dry at the beginning but in about of 10-12 min of kneading, it will come up all  together.
  • If the dough will remain too stiff add little more of yolk or egg white, if it is too soft, add little more flour.
  • Try to round the dough into a ball. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let rest for 30 min.
  • Divide the dough in 4-6 pieces. Round each piece, flatten it with rolling pin.
  • Run the dough through pasta roller. Start with number 1 or 2.
  • Run the dough through pasta roller again, but at this time use number 4 or 5 or even 6 if you would like your pasta to be thinner.
  • Now run the pasta sheet through pasta cutter.
  • Sprinkle cut pasta with some flour to prevent sticking.
  • Cook pasta in boiling water for 2-3 minutes until al dente.

    it would be very nice if you have an option to print the recipe from your site. I am old fashion, 🙂 I’d like to have printed.
    Maybe I don’t see this option?

    1. Hi, sorry! We don’t have that option, we are trying to save the trees.

  6. What is the extra benefit to adding the discard to the pasta dough?

    1. The health benefits of sourdough for your tummy as well as no waste of discard!

  7. Hai altre ricette con gli scarti di lievito madre?
    Grazie per condividere le tue ricette. Ben fatto.

  8. Can you share the serving this makes? My conversions with grams I don’t think are right? Thank you
