Let’s get started!

Schritt 1

Das Grundrezept für Nudelteig aus Hartweizengrieß. You will need 100 g of semolina flour and 50 g of water per person. 

Schritt 2

Cover the dough and let it rest for at least 30 minutes. Then, cut off one quarter of the dough and roll it out into a long rope (about the width of your index finger). Cut the rope into small pieces. 

Schritt 3 

Use a blunt knife and drag it over the dough pieces until the dough curls over the knife. Next, turn the orecchiette inside out over your thumb to create a hollow indentation in the center.

Schritt 4

Dust a baking tray with semolina flour and store the orecchiette on the tray in a single layer. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
