Standing Dartboard Cabinet Planshow to Standing Dartboard Cabinet Plans for Homemade Pasta Drying Rack for Pasta Making- Really Easy and Cheap!

I''t switch over to making all my own pasta then, because it was a bit too much work. I mostly did it when I wanted lasagna, because then the exact thickness of the pasta mattered less, and it was less work because it didn''t taste so good even. I started making my own pasta at home a little more frequently than I did in the past, because the pay off financially was worth it. But just a little more frequently, because pasta was my back up meal, for when I was in a rush, and making pasta wasn''more''t an intentional purchase. I had to return something to a store that I didn''t give me money back, only store credit. I looked and looked, trying to find something worthwhile to buy (I hate that store!) and found a pasta maker. I decided to get it.
It sat on my shelf for a good few months before I found a homemade gluten free pasta recipe that was pasta maker friendly.
And then I started making pasta much more frequently! Because pasta makers eliminate the hard part of making pasta- the rolling out the dough super thin until it reaches the right thickness, as well as making it all uniform thickness. And then it also cuts the dough in even pieces.
I love my pasta maker. It makes pasta making a breeze.
But the thing is- I pretty much only made pasta fresh. Never dried it to have for later, on a day when I''t do that anymore is because we pretty much have two flat working spaces total in my super small home- the dining room table, and the kitchen counter. And when I was making pasta and drying it, one small batch of pasta took over my whole entire dining room table. For a whole day or two! That just wasn''t her invention. Pasta racks can be bought anywhere pasta makers are sold, it seems. They sell them on amazon.

 

But you know me- if I can make something myself instead of buying it in the store, I will.
And a pasta drying rack needs to have one function- to hold as much pasta vertically and compactly as possible.

My goals for my homemade pasta drying rack, in addition to wanting it to be able to hold pasta vertically, was to be able to hold lots and lots of pasta, more than one batch at a time, ideally. And that it would be easy to make. And cheap. And that it would be collapsible for easy storage.

I decided to go with a different model than what is shown above- I didn''d be room for the pasta to hang down.

I thought I''t need it. If you find it needs it, perhaps fill the bottle 1/4 or 1/3 of the way up with water.

To use the drying rack, make your pasta and cut your long noodles. Take equal amounts of pasta in both hands, and place on both sides of the same skewer simultaneously. This prevents it from becoming unbalanced and falling over.
Place the pasta on the stand not overlapping each other. Leave it to dry until completely dry and hard, then move to storage.

And when you want to put away the stand? Just take out the skewers, open the cap of the bottle, and pop them in.

That''t tire me out at all.


Now, if you''ll pay off...

If you are gluten free, then the answer is absolutely. Homemade gluten free pasta is soooo much cheaper than store bought pasta, and if having a pasta maker means that you''ll actually use the pasta maker!

If you''re worth it?

  1. Penny,
    this is recycling genius! I have wanted to make myself a pasta drying rack for a long time currently I use the backs of our dining room chairs and once I used a round antique laundry rack lol. I could never bring myself to pay the prices for buying one but have never had the time to make nice looking wooden one. This is great!

    I always fondly rmember my mother drying cut noodles on flour-powdered, white bed sheets on my brother's beds, she made a lot of noodles at once, so it was handy using the 2 beds at once, she kind of flipped them around so they would dry evenly, stored them in paper bags later

    This is an interesting idea. Will I have to get used to a new taste from store-bought? I just changed to half whole wheat (under much protest from my family) and I don't want to shock them too much again. :)

    1. Maureen,
      homemade pasta is delicious it is MUCH better than store bought. I would think your family would love it I have never met someone yet that didn't much prefer homemade pasta also if you grind your flours fresh homemade whole wheat pasta tastes amazing much better than storebought. Good luck with converting your family to healthier eating.

  6. I am hoping I get a manual pasta maker for my birthday this year. I was researching how to dry and came across this link. This is great! And the post about using the antique drying rack gave me an idea. I have the Mulig drying rack from Ikea for my laundry. (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50228755/) I can just use that for big batches! Thanks for the post and the comments!

    Oh you are so smart anonymous. I had my clothes drying rack out when I made pasta (first and only time alone...made once in college with a friend) and didn't even think of that! Now I don't have to worry about a drying rack...I just need to put a clean towel underneath in case I manage to knock one down so I don't have to throw it away. :)
