Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more for pasta water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon water you may not need

Instructions

  • Place flour on counter. Add in salt.
  • Add the eggs, and mix with a fork one egg at a time. If the pasta appears too dry, add in a little water, just a little at a time.
  • Flour hands and form pasta into a dough by kneading. Wrap in plastic and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Once rested, roll pasta out, as thin as you can with a rolling pin or take through a pasta roller on in pasta machine as described above.
  • Once you have the pasta strips, allow to sit out on a cloth to dry slightly, up to 20 minutes. You want the pasta hard enough so that it doesn't stick when you cut and soft enough that it doesn't crack or get brittle.
  • You can use the pasta bike (described above) or hand cut strips in half and roll up and cut in one inch strips. Place in nests on the cloth or on a pasta drying rack.
  • These can dry or you can cook immediately.
  • Fill a large pot with salted, boiling water. Cook about 3 minutes.
  • You can freeze the pasta, but make sure it is completely dried out before placing in plastic bag.

Notes

Make Pasta: Use plenty of water. The more water, the quicker the pasta cooks. Salt the water right before adding pasta. Homemade noodles cook quickly about 3 minutes.
