  • Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour

    • 3 eggs room temperature and slightly beaten

    • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil

    • 2 tablespoons Water (if needed)

    • 1 teaspoon salt


Step 1

Homemade pasta can either be made by hand or in a stand mixer. If making by hand: Combine flour, beaten eggs, water, oil, and salt. Mix to make a stiff dough. Knead 10 minutes by hand.

Step 2

If dough is too sticky, sprinkle on additional flour until it comes together. If dough is too dry, sprinkle water until you get the right consistency. You'll want to knead until the dough is elastic. Slice into the dough with a paring knife; if you see lots of air bubbles, keep kneading. The dough is kneaded when it forms a smooth elastic ball and has very few air bubbles when cut. Test by pressing your knuckle into the dough; if it starts to bounce back then it's ready. Wrap dough in plastic wrap or in a covered bowl and let rest for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3

On a lightly floured surface roll out to desired thickness and cut as desired. Alternatively, cut into small chunks, flour, and roll through a pasta roller. For this process, send through on thickness of 0. Fold in thirds and rotate so that straight edges are on the side and send it through again. Fold in thirds once more, again with straight edges on sides, and then send it through thickness 0 for a third pass. Then, change thickness to 1 and send dough through once. Continue the process stepping through thicknesses 2, 3, 4 and end with 5. Give the dough sheet one last dip in flour and then run it through the noodle cutting side.

Step 4

You can dredge pasta in flour to ensure it doesn't stick together. Either set on a cookie sheet until ready to cook or dry pasta on a drying rack. To cook, bring a large pot of heavily-salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender (approximately 3 - 5 minutes). When making lasagna, there is no need to boil noodles. Add directly to your recipe.
