You will need:
2 eggs 1 yoke or 1 egg and 3 yokes
1 and 2/3 cups flour ( I like to use 00 but you can use all purpose just make sure its not clumpy)
1 tbsp olive oil
Kitchen Aid with dough hook or a mixing bowl and fork
Pasta maker or rolling pin
IMPORTANT. Each pass you MUST dust the dough with flour or it will stick!!
This works great if you have a Kitchen Aid mixer with a dough hook. If not a bowl and a fork will do just fine.
In the bowl of your mixer or a regular bowl, beat the eggs and the oil. Add half the flour and stir with fork to combine. At this point begin to mix with dough hook, gradually adding more flour. If not using the machine, then add flour gradually mixing with fork. Once you have a dough consistency, you want it to be a bit sticky, turn it out on a floured wood board ( a clean cutting board of any type is fine). Knead with your hands adding a little more flour at a time until you have a silky and non sticky texture. Form a ball, place on board and place a bowl over top to let it rest for at-least 30 minutes, up to an hour.
Cut ball into four pieces, each piece is a serving. Roll each through the machine to flatten OR use rolling pin and roll until size
Sprinkle with flour. Roll up and slice into 1/4 inch pieces.
Boil a pot of water and place each serving in for 60 seconds, remove with slotted spoon, place in serving dish and cook the next batch of pasta.
Top with your favorite sauce! Just a note, it takes awhile to perfect the pasta. While I haven’t ever made a batch I didn’t want to eat, I learn a little with each creation what works and what doesn’t. The best advice is to add flour gradually. This is why I use a bowl rather than the traditional way of placing the flour on the board and creating a well for the eggs.
Freeze fresh pasta noodles: Toss the noodles in a little flour to keep them from sticking, then lay the pasta noodles in a single layer on a baking tray. Alternatively, you can form the pasta noodles into a circular nest. Let the noodles air dry for one hour, then put the semi-dry pasta in a freezer-safe plastic bag or airtight container. The frozen pasta noodles will last for eight months. You can put the frozen noodles straight into boiling water to cook them.
