1 cup protein powder -- plain/zero carb prefered
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 each eggs -- extra large
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper -- (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup water -- approximate*
How To Prepare:
I highly recommend either a pasta machine that mixes and extrudes or at least a pasta press/roller type mnachine for even rolling/cutting.
Mix protein powder, flour, salt and pepper in machine basin or bowl. Mix wet ingredients well making sure to beat egg into other ingredients, and add according to manufacturers directions OR make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and mix until it forms a dough that holds together but is not wet. If it's too wet, add a tablespoon more of protein powder and knead in. If it's too dry, add a tablespoon of water and knead in.
Once the dough is formed, extrude in desired pasta shape according to mfg instructions OR divide into 4 pieces, powder with extra protein powder and run through press as directed to desired thickeness and cut OR divide into 4 pieces powder a flat surface and roll with a rolling pin to desired thickenss and cut to desired shape/length.
To cook: drop into rapidly boiling water for approximately 1-2 minutes
depending on thickness and pasta type. Do not overcook. Serve immediately.
NOTES : This makes 4 main dish sized servings when done with a mix/extrude machine because it forms even sized pieces. When rolling and cutting by hand, it may make less. It also makes 6 side dish servings.
