Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cup Italian “00" flour or all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • On a clean surface, add the flour in a mound. Sprinkle salt over top. Create a well in the center of the flour, then add the eggs.
  • Gently mix the eggs, then gradually add in flour. Knead the pasta dough for about 8-10 minutes or until a stiff, tacky dough forms.
  • If the dough is too dry add a 1/2 tsp of water. If the dough is too sticky, sprinkle in a little more flour.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow it to rest for 50 minutes. Divide the dough into two.
  • To roll the dough, start on the largest setting(crank or KitchenAid attachment), usually a 6. Carefully run one half of the dough through it, then again on the same setting. Fold the dough into thirds (a bookfold). Then start to adjust the machine to a thinner setting after each pass until you reach a 2 or 3. I find that in general, a 3 is the perfect thinness.
  • Use a separate attachment/part of your machine to cut the pasta into desired shapes, or you can do this by hand. Simply use a pizza wheel or ravioli press.
  • In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta for 3-4 minutes, remove and serve.
