Total time: 
Serves: 3-4
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 Cup (~180g) of type '00' or all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  1. Form the Flour into a Volcano
  2. In a separate bowl beat the egg until smooth
  3. Pour the beaten egg into the center of the volcano and slowly incorporate the flour
  4. Add the olive oil
  5. Knead the dough for roughly 10 minutes or until smooth
  6. If the dough remains sticky add flour in small doses
  7. Seperate the dough into balls - roughly 2 balls for every egg you use
  8. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes
  1. Sprinkle some salt into a large stock pot of water and set on high to begin boiling
  2. Break the dough into small balls roughly the size of racket ball
  3. Roll the dough through each setting of your pasta roller (from thickest to thinnest), dusting the flour each time to prevent sticking
  4. Take the thinnest sheet, dust it with some flour, and roll it through your pasta cutter to make your desired pasta
  5. Take the cut pasta and boil for ~2 minutes
Using a powered pasta attachment like for a kitchen aid will greatly speed things up.

I always recommend weighing ingredients to get repeatable results!
