In a large bowl, mix semolina and salt. Add warm water and stir to make a stiff dough. Increase water if dough seems too dry.
Pat the dough into a ball and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 10 to 15 minutes. Cover. Let dough rest for 20 minutes.
Roll out dough using rolling pin or pasta machine. Work with a 1/4 of the dough at one time. Keep the rest covered, to prevent from drying out. If using a pasta machine, stop at the third to last setting.
Cut pasta into desired shapes.
Cook fresh pasta in boiling salted water for 3 to 5 minutes. Pasta will float to top when done. Drain.
Great recipe that I made using my KitchenAid pasta maker. I found I had to add some extra water. I was so happy to find an eggless pasta recipe and this will be my new go to recipe.

Used different ingredients.
Good basic, eggless recipe. I keep concentrated vegetable pastes in my freezer that I make myself from scraps. I made this recipe with 5 tbsp water and two tbsp of sundried tomato paste, and also added 1 dsp of olive oil. I dressed the pasta with a very light cheese sauce made with single cream, pecorino and nutmeg, and topped with a spinach and walnut sauce. This was a very good dish.

Great recipe for those (like me) can't stomach the heaviness of egg pasta.
