    Making wholemeal pasta

    I've bought wholemeal pasta for the kids but when I make pasta I use the 00 flour. Given pasta is one of the few things I'm guaranteed they'll eat I'd like to make wholemeal too. Does anyone know if I use just normal wholemeal plain flour or if there is a wholemeal 00 equivalent? I know I could just give it a go but I'm fairly time poor at the moment so don't really want a disaster if I can avoid it

    I would just use ordinary wholemeal flour. I have made pasta using "normal" plain flour (and egg), and it was fine. Good luck. X

    This might be a little too late but I made pasta last night with normal whole meal flour. I used 100gm to one egg with a little bit of water to bring it together. Hubby said it was fantastic!

    I have used regular whole meal flour with no disasters yet, so I am sure you will be fine.
