Do not know how to make Pappardelle pasta?
Traditionally served with very rich, heavy sauces, and is very popular in winter dishes where it is a basis of a hearty, warming meal. Typically, pappardelle is made with an egg-based dough with the edges of the ribbons. Dried Pappardelle is usually made with hard wheat. For fresh Pappardelle wheat type is not very important (pasta made from durum wheats holds its shape while softer wheat has a tendency to fall apart). Usually durum pastas take longer to cook. Especially if it has a larger size.
