A simple and easy vegan pasta dough recipe to make at home in a few simple steps. There’s nothing better than pasta, except probably homemade pasta and in Italy we know that very well: from north to south, every region of Italy has its typical pasta dishes and they’re all made with fresh pasta just like “nonna” taught us. Today we’re taking a different approach, making fresh pasta without eggs: this recipe is perfect for anyone this recipe is perfect for anyone who is intolerant to eggs and for those who follow a vegan diet.

To make eggless pasta, you only need some warm water and durum semolina flour. Durum, a hard wheat variety, is coarsely ground to make a flour. In case you’re unable to procure any kind of semolina flour, all-purpose flour can be used as an alternative but you should expect a different result. Of course eggless pasta won’t be as yellow as pasta made with eggs: if you want to achieve the characteristic yellowish look you can add a pinch of Turmeric or Saffron, rest assured the flavor won’t be affected.

You should consider, that unlike classic homemade pasta made with eggs, this vegan variation requires longer cooking times: indicatively 6 to 8 minutes as compared to the 2-4 minutes required by “classic” egg pasta. You should cook handmade pasta (both with or without eggs) in plenty of boiling salted water.


Copy Ingredients


  1. To prepare Homemade Fresh Pasta Without Eggs start by pouring the flour into a bowl.

  2. With your hand make a hollow in the center and pour in the salt.

  3. Add the hot water in a trickle, mixing first with a fork then by hand. You will need to knead the dough vigorously, transferring it to a wooden board, until it is smooth and homogeneous.

  4. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 30 minutes before rolling out the dough.

  5. Depending on the dough size you wish to obtain, you can roll out the dough by hand or with a pasta maker machine. In this case start with the thickest thickness and reduce it with each pass, helping if necessary with more flour if it sticks to the machine.

  6. Cut the Homemade Fresh Pasta Without Eggs into the size you prefer. Cooking time is around 10 minutes in boiling salted water, but we still recommend that you taste from time to time.

You can also preparare the classic version of this recipe: fresh egg pasta dough.


To give the dough a color more like egg pasta, add half a teaspoon of turmeric to the flour before you start pouring in the water.


Homemade Fresh Pasta Without Eggs can be stored on a wooden board for 3-4 hours.

You can also freeze you fresh eggless pasta. Make any shape you like with the pasta (tagliatelle, ravioli, casoncelli) and then place them on a tray well apart from each other. Place back in the freezer to harden for a couple of hours, then remove the tray from the freezer and place your pasta in the clear bags, then place back in the freezer. When it is time to consume them you will simply bake them directly frozen.
