A great basic pasta recipe. If you're making fresh pasta for the first time, USE THIS RECIPE. Like previous reviewers noted, letting the dough rest is so helpful. Wrap it in plastic or cover it with a towel and give it a few hours (or a day or more) and it is so much easier to work with. If it tears apart or is too stiff to roll, add a couple of tablespoons of water and let it rest some more. The flavor is perfect. Add or reduce salt as desired. Personally, I prefer to leave the salt out and just liberally salt the water. I have used this recipe for thick noodles, thin spaghetti, and lasagna. I've worked it both by hand and with a mixer with fine results. I've rolled and cut it both by hand and with a pasta machine and both were fine. It's really ideal and foolproof. Try it!
