  • 2 cups flour

  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons water, or as needed


  1. Mix flour, eggs, olive oil, and salt in a bowl until combined. Add water, 1 teaspoon at a time, to flour mixture until a smooth, thick dough forms.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 10 minutes. Let dough rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

  3. Divide dough into 8 balls; use a pasta machine to roll and cut dough into desired pasta shape.


This dough makes really great homemade linguine or ravioli using a manual pasta machine. If it's too sticky, just roll a bit in flour.

This recipe makes enough pasta for 24 small raviolis or 4 servings of linguine. Whatever pasta you make, it should take no more than 4 to 6 minutes to boil.
