Nothing like the taste of home-made pasta. Easy and rewarding to make!
Course: Main Course, Soup
Servings: 1 pound
- 2 cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 3 egg
- 1-2 teaspoons water as needed to form dough (may need a bit more)
In a medium size mixing bowl or directly on a board, sift together the flour and salt, and create a well in the center to add the eggs and a ½ teaspoon of water.
Mix using a pastry blender or fork. (The dough is similar to pie crust in behavior). Add small amounts of water if needed until dough forms a soft ball. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. If the dough is too dry and won’t stick together, add a 1/2 teaspoon of water. If it is too sticky, sprinkle in a bit more flour.
Wrap dough ball in plastic wrap and allow to rest for at about 45 minutes before working.
Dough can either be rolled with a pin on a floured surface, or can be passed through a pasta machine.
After rolling and shaping, you can either cook your pasta right away (3-4 minutes in boiling water) or dry it for later.
This recipe yields approximately one pound of pasta. Simply double or triple the recipe for more.
Pasta can easily be dried for use later.
