- Pile flour onto a work surface and make a small well in the center; place eggs, egg yolks, olive oil, and salt into the well. Gently stir the egg mixture with a fork, gradually drawing in flour until dough comes together.
- Knead dough with hands until smooth and leathery, about 10 minutes.
- Wrap dough in plastic wrap; let rest until malleable, 1 to 2 hours. Remove plastic wrap.
- Cut dough into four pieces; roll out with a rolling pin. Run flattened pieces through a pasta roller to create desired noodle shape.
- Cook's Notes:
- Based on the commercial flours available in my region, all-purpose flour will work too, but the resulting noodle won't be quite as supple.
- Add up to 2 more egg yolks if dough does not clump together in step 1. The dough needs to be a little drier when you're extruding it and a little more moist if you're going to roll it.
- If using a stand mixer: 1. Place flour, eggs, egg yolks, olive oil, and salt in the bowl; mix with the beater paddle on low until combined, 1 to 2 minutes. 2. Switch to the dough hook mixer attachment; mix until dough pulls together, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove bowl from the stand; cover with plastic wrap and proceed with step 3.
