How to make Gluten Free Corn Pasta ~ Food Processor and Pasta Roller Machine:

In a food Processor with the blade add and pulse until combined:
1 1/3 Cups Maseca Instant Corn Masa Flour (It is Gluten Free)
1/3 Cup Tapioca Flour
1/3 Cup Corn Starch
¼ Cup Potato Starch
1 TBL. Xanthan Gum
1 tsp. Salt

In a Glass Measuring cup whisk with a fork:
4 Large Eggs (Room Temperature)
3 TBL. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Slowly pour the Egg and Oil mixture thru the chute

After that has been mixed,  add 2-4 TBL. Water
Adding only 1 Tbl. At a time (I used 2-3 TBL water)
If you add to much water and the dough is very sticky add a little bit more Maseca Flour.
Also if the dough is to dry add a little bit more water.
The Dough should have the consistency of Play Dough.

Mix in the Food Processor for about 1-2 Minutes until the Dough is Pliable and does not stick to your hands.

Place the dough on the counter (You do not need to add any flour to the counter)
Knead for about a minute. (If the dough sticks then add just a little bit of the Maseca Flour)
Cover the Dough completely in Plastic Wrap. Rest 30-40 Minutes

Follow the instruction for your Pasta Maker.
Dived the dough into 4-6 piece. Flatten out with your hand or use a small Silicon Roller with a little bit of  Maseca Flour. (So it will fit in the machine)
Start with the Roller on the largest Setting. Sprinkle roller with a small amount of flour
Roll out the dough. Then fold dough into Thirds. Roll again, fold in Half,  Roll Again. Turn the Roller down one notch
If dough gets sticky add a small amount of Flour and continue turning notch down until desired thickness.
After you roll each piece of dough lay on a cloth. After all dough has been rolled. Rest the dough 10 minutes. (Uncovered)

I used the Fettuccine Cutter. After I cut the Fettuccine, I gave it a twist and  placed it on a Cookie Sheet sprinkled with some Maseca Flour.

Bring a large Pot of water to a Boil and Salt.

Add the Pasta and stir; Cook for approximately 2 minutes or until done.. Do not over cook the pasta otherwise it will be gummy and stick together. Drain the Pasta and drizzle with some Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Serve with Spaghetti Sauce or any sauce of your choice.
I made a quick Fettuccine Alfredo Sauce.
I do not measure out my ingredients for the Alfredo Sauce.
I melt some Butter,, Saute in some Fresh Garlic. Add some Black Pepper and Parsley.
I used Lactose Free Milk or you can use any milk or cream of your choice whisking it in with lots of Fresh Parmesan Cheese... the sauce will thicken up,, Gently toss in the Pasta and Serve.
