For those who don't work with flour often, you should use a quality flour, I like King Arthur. Also, take into consideration the humidity when adding the flour, If the humidity is high you will most likely need all of the flour, if the humidity is low, you can add the flour in parts to see if the consistancy is correct. Just adding all the flour and mixing it and working it too much will produce a tough pasta. It is much like making bread, I sift mine first and just add as much as is needed to make a nice dough. Let it rest and the rest will be somewhat easier if you don't have a pasta machine. Humidity matters!
