  • 3 cups fine semolina flour from hard wheat (500 grams)
  • 1⅓ cups warm water (250-350 grams)
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • On a work surface or in a bowl, mix together the flour, the salt, and 3/4 of the water.
  • Mix the flour and water together with your hands.
  • Add the remaining water little by little. Depending on the brand of flour and on the humidity in the air, your dough will take more or less water than indicated here.
  • On a work surface, knead the dough with your hands vigorously for at least 10 minutes (see video for details).
  • Knead until the dough is smooth. Then shape into a ball and set aside to rest for at least 15 minutes, covered with a damp cloth.
  • Shape the pasta into the orecchiette shape, either with your fingers or with a small knife. See video for technique.
  • You can cook the pasta immediately in salted boiling water, for about 2 minutes.
  • You can also let the pasta dry covered with a dry cloth, and then store it in an air tight container.
