Homemade egg pasta

Homemade egg pasta

Makes approximately 1 pound of pasta.


2 cups OO flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 whole large eggs
1 tablespoon water



In the bowl to the food processor, pulse together the flour and salt.  Add the eggs and water and process until the dough forms a soft ball but is not sticky.  If so, add more flour a tablespoon at a time until it isn't sticky. Remove the dough from the food processor bowl and knead on a very lightly floured board until soft and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.  Let the dough rest wrapped in plastic wrap for at least 30 minutes.

Divide the dough into 4 pieces.  With a pasta machine, roll one piece of the pasta out to 1/8" thick.  Roll the sheet through the spaghetti, fettuccine or linguine cutter. Cut the pasta into 10-inch to 12-inch strands and toss on your work surface with flour.  Place a kitchen towel on a baking sheet and dust with flour. Place the pasta on the baking sheet. Set aside and roll out the remaining 3 pieces of pasta.
