  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-4 tbsp water, ,as needed


  • Combine flour and salt in mixing bowl.
  • Add eggs into flour. As you mix, pull flour into eggs until you have a soft dough. Add water as needed until you can form a ball that is the consistency of play doh. This can be done in a mixer or by hand.
  • Knead dough either by hand on a floured board, or in a mixer with a dough hook, until it is firm. Add flour if needed to keep from sticking.
  • Form dough into a ball and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough into two pieces. Shape each piece into a flattened oval and sprinkle with flour. Pass through widest setting of pasta roller. Sprinkle with flour, fold in half and send through roller on widest setting again. Repeat this step until the the pasta sheet is smooth.
  • Continue to pass pasta sheets through progressively thinner roller settings, until at desired thickness.
  • If cutting into noodles, cut sheets into desired lengths and pass through pasta cutter.
  • Cook fresh in boiling salted water for 2-4 minutes until al dente. You can also freeze or dry the pasta for later use. (Dried pasta will take 7-10 minutes to cook).
