Turmeric Pasta Recipe

1. In a medium or large mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
2. In a separate bowl, crack and beat the eggs with olive oil. Then pour the liquid mixture into your dry mixture.
3. Slowly mix the ingredients all together and knead for about 5-8 minutes. We are looking for a smooth, satiny consistency, and you will want your final dough to be in a ball shape.
4. Once you are done, cover your bowl with a wet paper towel and let it for at least 30 minutes.
5. When you are ready to make your pasta, cut your dough into quarters.
6. Grab one of the quarter dough and shape it into a rectangle. Roll it out a little, and the thickness should be about 1/3 inches. This way, the dough could fit into your pasta maker and run through. The rest will depend on your personal preference as to how thick you like your pasta and what shape you like.
I recommend running the dough through each setting at least three times before moving on to the next setting.
If you did add black peppers to your pasta, you want to make sure your black pepper isn't too big to go through the setting you want. If your ground black pepper size is too big, you can rip your pasta sheet when running the sheet through the pasta maker. To avoid taking a risk, you can always use finely ground black pepper.
7. To cook the pasta, boil it in boiling water for about 1-3 minutes. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your pasta.

My Turmeric Recommendation
Not all turmeric are created equal. When purchasing your turmeric, you will want to read the ingredients on back of the label and it should only be single ingredients. An you should always look for certified organic by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). By going through the certification, the supplier will need to meet certain requirements.
There are turmerics on the market that contains artificial yellow dyes, fillers/additive. You will want to avoid these because consuming too much of these ingredients can give you a side effect.
Pasta Maker Recommendation
A pasta makers can range from $30-$200. You can get a traditional pasta maker, a electric pasta maker machine, or an attachment to your stand mixer.
This is the one that I have and I recommend it. You can get it less than $50. It is super easy to use, clean and affordable.

How Long To Boil The Pasta For?
You only need to boil your pasta in boiling water for one to three minutes. This will depends on the thickness if your pasta.
How Much Turmeric To Use?
Turmeric is mildly aromatic and has scents of orange or ginger. It has a pungent, bitter flavor. I like to use two teaspoons of turmeric in my recipe; however, you can use one teaspoon if the flavor is too much for you.
And what I love about adding ground turmeric is it add this beautiful natural yellow color to your pasta.
If you are using turmeric to get the anti-inflammatory benefit, you will need to get 500 to 1,000 milligrams of curcumin per day. And one teaspoon of ground turmeric has around 200 milligrams of curcumin. If you want to know a more accurate milligrams levels, you can always buy turmeric in capsules form and open them up.
