Make Homemade Pasta with a Paper Shredder

Learn how to make homemade pasta using a paper shredder.


  • Paper shredder
  • Pasta dough
  • Flour
  • Rolling pin

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  • Before using the shredder, clean it so that your pasta does not taste like oil.
  • Remove the trash bin attached to the shredder before using.
  • Cover the pasta dough in flour and roll it out to desired thickness using a rolling pin. If you do not own a rolling pin, a wine bottle is a fine substitute.
  • Turn on the shredder and run the dough through to cut the pasta.

Note: Some paper shredders will not turn on unless the overwrite button is pushed. To keep from pushing this button the whole time, roll up a piece of tape and lodge it to prevent the button from sliding.
