Making pasta is easier than one might think – three ingredients – some strength – and you will certainly need patience while it’s resting!
- 500 g white flour (1.1 lb)
- 4 eggs
- Place the flour on a large wood cutter or more generally on a flat surface – marble would be the ideal (as it’s not pourous). Break the eggs and after you have created a sort of crater shape with the flour, drop the egg (both the yolk and the white in the center). Add a pinch of salt. Begin to knead inwards to outwards. When the dough is soft yet firm and elastic give it a round shape.
- Cover and leave it to rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
- To make thin pasta sheets you can use a rolling pin or a pasta machine.
