Power Packed Protein Pasta Recipe
Making your own pasta is a fun and engaging way to explore new skills, recipes, and techniques in the kitchen. Just like with the dough of cakes and other baked goods, adding protein powder to pasta dough is a relatively simple step in the not-so-simple process of making your own noodles.
Whether you’re an experienced pasta chef or just want to give it a shot, this straightforward protein pasta recipe can have you handcrafting your own power-packed pasta dishes in no time.
This recipe was adapted from the Anabolic Gourmet’s Body Builders’ High Protein Homemade Fettuccine recipe.
The great part about making fettuccine is that you don’t need a bunch of fancy pasta-making tools to create the long flat ribbon-like noodles. However, this recipe is significantly easier to make when you have a good tabletop mixer fitted with a dough hook.
You can use a traditional pasta-making flour like semolina or 00 flour, but, to get the most protein with good results, we recommend using chickpea flour, which is sometimes called besan, garbanzo flour, or gram flour, in combination with unbleached all-purpose flour or nut-based flour.
Once you make your pasta, you can dress it with whatever type of sauce, meat, cheese, and herbs that you like. Leftover uncooked noodles can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week or frozen for longer storage. When you cook the frozen noodles, don’t thaw them, simply place the frozen bundle directly into the heated water and cook as normal.
