Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Pour 1 3/4 cups flour into a large, shallow bowl and make a well in the center. Crack eggs into the well and mix flour and eggs together with a fork or your hands. Stir oil and salt into mixture; gradually add water and remaining flour until a dough starts to come together.

  • Knead dough until dough is elastic and soft. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

You'll need a pasta machine to make your pasta. Set your setting on the widest. Put one quarter of the dough through the machine and each time reset the setting to a smaller width until you have the thickness desired. Then you can boil them as is for lasagna or use the spaghetti tool to make spaghetti. Have fun!
