  • Prep

  • Cook

  1. Pour 2 cups of flour into a large bowl.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Mix well.
  3. Add three beaten eggs and 1 teaspoon olive oil to the flour.
  4. Mix with a fork until slightly crumbly.
  5. Dust your hands with flour. Press the crumbly dough into a large ball.
  6. Knead the dough on a floured surface. Work the dough for approximately 10 minutes or until smooth.
  7. Roll out the dough. Using a rolling pin, spread the dough until it is thinner than 1/8 inch. Dust the rolling pin with flour to keep the dough from sticking to it.
  8. Cut the dough into 1/4-inch strips with a paring knife. Use a clean, plastic cutting board as a guide, if desired.
  9. Air-dry the pasta for 30 to 40 minutes before cooking.
  10. Boil 8 cups of water in a large stockpot.
  11. Add 2 teaspoons salt to the boiling water.
  12. Add the pasta to the stockpot. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until the pasta is tender but firm, also known as al dente.
