Crabmeat pasta with fennel and chillies is of the nicest pasta dishes that I've ever cooked, using rustically hand-cut home made pasta

Almost 100 pasta recipes can be found in this recipe section. We have a pasta identification area, a pasta cooking time guide for every pasta type imaginable and even a section dedicated to pasta salads. This should be obvious, but always use the very best ingredients you can afford. Make your own pasta, it's a simple procedure, made slightly easier if you have a food processor, but perfectly possible without. You don't need a pasta machine, just a rolling pin and a knife.

Flour: You can taste the difference between bread made with high quality organic flour and cheap supermarket own-brand flour.

Salt: Sea salt or kosher salt is preferable to table salt which usually has a list of additives.

Eggs: Fresh as you can get them, free-range if possible.

Fats: Don't use spreads to replace butter, margarine or shortening in recipes as these often contain less fat and more water.
