  1. Heap the flour, and make a well in it. Break the eggs into the well. Beat eggs with a fork. Stir into the flour from the bottom of the well with the fork until the dough in the center is smooth or shiny.
  2. With your hands, gradually incorporate the flour from the outside of the well toward the center, kneading gently until the mass of dough comes together. Knead the dough until it is smooth and resilient. You may need to add more flour, or you may not be able to incorporate all of the flour, depending on the humidity and the size of the eggs. If the dough is sticky or extremely pliable, knead more flour into it.
  3. Divide the dough into three portions, cover with plastic wrap or an overturned bowl, and allow to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Roll the dough out very thin on a lightly floured surface, one portion at a time. If you have a pasta machine, follow the manufacturer's instructions for rolling out the dough into sheets about 1 millimeter thick. Use as desired.

Without a pasta machine, I found it difficult to get the pasta thin enough. The recipe itself was easy and fairly tasty, but the presentation was not very nice.

The mixture of only flour and eggs make a mound of flakes, this was a really bad recipe. I had to add olive oil and water to make it work. The adding of theses two ingredients work great the dou...

Fresh pasta tastes so much better than the boxed stuff. I added a dash of salt to the pasta recipe and used my Kitchen Aide pasta maker.

With a pasta machine, this recipe worked well. Would like to try adding spices to it the next time for more tasty pasta.
