7-yolk pasta dough, is 00 flour ok?

mrsgodfrey Oct 29, 2010 10:30 AM

I am planning to make ravioli and have been doing a ton of research on the chow boards. Thanks for all of the great tips. I am planning to make the French Laundry 7-yolk pasta dough (recipe here: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...).

Question is: It calls for all-purpose flour, but I really want to use 00 flour because I am looking for a silky texture. Is this a big mistake?

Thanks for any advice.

    Sorry for the short answer but yes, 00 pasta flour.

      I've used 00 flour with very eggy pasta doughs without a problem - although I have not made ravioli from it - just spaghetti/linguini.
