How to make it

  • Place the flour onto the counter, and form a 'bowl with your fingers.
  • Add the eggs, water and oil gradually, mixing in as you go, until the entire 'bowl' of flour is incorporated.
  • Let this dough rest about 10 minutes, covered with a damp towel.
  • Then:
  • Knead the dough 10 minutes, then let it rest one hour.
  • Best to use a pasta hand-crank machine for lengthening and cutting, but if you don't have one, here's a good substitute method:
  • Use a rolling pin to flatten to desired thinness.
  • Cut it into long strips approx 1/8th inches wide. [Or, cut into whatever shape you prefer.]
  • Allow to dry, or cook immediately.
  • Footnote
  • Tastes great with tomato sauce, meatballs, cheese, or butter topping.
  • Note-- Yelling “Ayyy!” or singing “O Solo Mio” is not allowed.....! :

    Thanks for your comments and ratings! It's really quite easy to make, and when dried, it will keep for ages in an airtight container. :+D
