Make this easy einkorn cavatelli (homemade shaped pasta recipe) by hand. This homemade cavatelli recipe goes great with red sauce or butter and herbs. With no eggs, it's perfect for drying or freezing for later use!
Make a well with flour and add 1/4 cup of warm water at a time.
Stir the mixture. Knead in more water as needed until a soft, flexible dough with bounce is formed. You many not need all the water. If you add too much water, add in more flour until the correct consistency is reached.
Create the shape of pasta you want to make. Store finished shapes on a wax paper lined tray or a well floured surface while you finish working with all the dough.Be sure to allow enough time for shaping. It will take about an hour if you have practiced before, but longer if you haven't.
Bring 2 quarts of salted water to a boil and drop in the fresh pasta. Boil for 3-5 minutes, or until it reaches the desired texture.
Serve the pasta right away with a red sauce or butter and herbs.
To freeze, shape and then place in a freezer bag and freeze immediately. Thaw overnight in the fridge before cooking.This pasta can also be air dried and stored for up to 6 months, since it doesn't contain any eggs.
