Instructions Checklist
  • Mix flour, eggs, egg yolks, olive oil, and salt together in a bowl until dough reaches a crumbly texture. Knead dough until smooth and even. Add 1 tablespoon flour to dough until dough is smooth and soft, if needed. Wrap dough with a clean cloth or plastic wrap, place in a bowl, and let rest for 20 to 30 minutes. Roll dough into golfball-size balls and roll to about 1/4-inch thickness using a pasta machine or roller.

Cook's Notes:

Knead, fold and roll with light flour dusting for a good thin noodle. Cook for 3 minutes for 'al dente' and an extra minute for a softer texture.

This is a good basic pasta dough. Much of the success in making this depends on the flour (it absorbs liquid differently on damp and dry days) as well as the size of your eggs. Dough should be pliable, soft and not stick to your hands. This worked very well in my Kitchen Aid pasta roller. I used my Italian MIL's chitarra (guitar) to make some of the spaghetti. I also tried this in the Kitchen Aid Pasta Press and it flowed through beautifully! Nice recipe, would make again. Read More
