Traditional Slovenian Recipe:
Grated Pasta for Soup | Ribana Kaša
In Slovenian this soup is called 'Ribana kaša'. It is my favourite homemade pasta noodle for soup. It is super easy to make and my children just LOVE it too. It brings homemade broth to a whole new level.
Ingredients for Pasta noodles:
3/4 cup flour
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
- Add the flour to a bowl. Make a well in the center. Add the beaten egg and salt to the well. Slowly incorporate together, using your fingers or a fork until you get a crumbly mixture.
- Turn it over onto the surface that you are working on and continue kneading by hand until you form a really hard ball of dough. *warning* the ball will be VERY hard and that is what you are looking for.
- Shape the dough into a puck. Wrap it in a clear plastic wrap. Place the dough in the freezer for appx. 30 minutes.
- Grate the dough onto a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. *When grating use the larger holes on the grater.
- If you are using the pasta dough right away, allow it to dry for at least an hour. Otherwise, dry it overnight and seal it in an airtight container. Store it in a (dry area) pantry for up to 2 months
- Serve with my homemade soup broth. * See Recipe below *
