If you have not tried making your own fresh pasta, I highly recommend it – it’s just 4 ingredients, a little mixing time, resting time, and rolling.

If you have a stand mixer you can use this with a dough hook, or you can knead by hand to get the perfect smooth elasticity you need.

Once it’s rested, if you have a pasta roller, this will be fast and easy, but it can also be rolled with a rolling pin and cut with a knife.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Mix the flour and salt together and make a well in the center

Step 2

Add the eggs and oil into the well 

Step 3

Mix until a shaggy dough forms

Step 4

Gather the dough with your hands to form a ball

Step 5

Knead for 10 minutes until smooth and soft

Step 6

Wrap in plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 30 minutes

Step 7

Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll each in turn covering the remaining dough with a damp cloth so it doesn’t dry out

Roll each piece into a long rectangle and then make 3 folds as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope and repeat the rolling and folding 2 more times

Your final roll out should end with your pasta being your desired thickness and then you can use and cut as needed

Tip

We show you how to make your pasta by hand, but you can use a mixer with a dough hook attachment to help with kneading and a pasta roller to help with rolling and cutting
