• 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 large eggs
  • Semolina flour, for dusting


  1. In a food processor fitted with the blade attachment, combine flour, salt, tomato paste and eggs until a loose dough forms.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead to form a ball.
  3. Flatten the ball into a disc, wrap in plastic and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Cut each piece into dime-size knobs.
  5. Roll each piece on a slotted spoon with round holes to create the knobby pattern.
  6. In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta for about 3 minutes until al dente.
  7. Serve with sauce of choice.
