Instructions Checklist
  • Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl; push into a mound and make a well in the center. Place egg, water, and olive oil into the well; mix together, slowly incorporating the flour mixture until dough is combined.

  • Turn out dough onto a floured work surface; knead until ball forms, 5 to 10 minutes. Divide in half; form into balls. Wrap each dough ball in plastic wrap; rest dough until malleable, about 30 minutes.

  • Remove plastic wrap. Roll out dough balls; cut into desired shapes with a knife or pasta roller.

Cook's Notes:

The semolina flour makes an incredible difference over all-purpose flour, and shouldn't be substituted.

The dough can be colored red by using tomato paste instead of water, or green by using sautéed blended spinach.

This dough is ideally used in a pasta machine, but can be rolled by hand.
