How to make it

  • Mound the flour on your countertop.
  • Make a well in the center add add the salt.
  • Break in the first egg and gently beat it with a fork until it thickens with some of the surrounding flour.
  • Repeat this process with the other two eggs.
  • Gather the mixture in a ball.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and knead until the dough is smooth, only about two minutes. (Don' t overwork the dough!).
  • Wrap the dough tightly in saran wrap to keep moist when not using.
  • To make pasta -
  • Cut dough into 6 pieces working each individually.
  • If you have a pasta machine - follow the directions to make the dough as thin as needed and cut into shape preferred.
  • If you don't have a pasta machine - you ahve to roll the dough out with a pin until it is as thin as you can possibly make it. (This takes some elbow grease!). Cut the dough with a pizza or pastry cutter to the shape you want.
  • Boil in salted water for about 3 minutes OR allow it to dry completely and store for later.

    This pasta sounds great. Cant wait to try it. You're right about rolling out the dough. It takes alot of elbow grease! I've made noodles alot. Once you get the hang of it it goes pretty fast.

    The recipe sounds so easy. I've never made homemade pasta, but would love to. And I've always wanted to get a pasta machine, looks like I better.
