Homemade pasta

2 1/3 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 beaten eggs
1/3 c water
1 tsp cooking oil or olive oil

1)In a large mixing bowl combine 2 c flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture. In a small bowl combine eggs, water, and oil. Add to dry mixture; mix well.

2) Sprinkle counter top with flour. Knead dough until smooth and elastic (about 8 min). Cover and let dough rest for 10 min.

3) Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 12-inch square (about 1/16 inch thick--or use a pasta roller). Let stand 20 min (you can skip this, but your noodles will turn out thicker and squiggly).

4) cut as desired. I used a pizza cutter and just cut thin strips.


  1. Then what? Do I just put them into boiling water and cook them? Sound yummy, I may never want to buy store bought pasta again!
