Homemade Pasta

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups, plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 eggs

 

METHOD:

1. Make the pasta dough: In a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, combine all of the dough ingredients. Mix on medium speed until a dough begins to form, then transfer to a clean work surface. Knead the dough until it fully comes together, then wrap in plastic wrap and rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the pasta dough into a rectangle, so it is thin and narrow enough to fit through the widest setting on your pasta roller. Sprinkle the dough with more all-purpose flour and begin to roll out. Gradually make the roller thinner until the pasta sheets are ⅛ inch thick. Using a knife, cut the dough into 10-by-1-inch strips of pasta.

3. Assemble the pasta: Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then season with salt. Cook the pasta until al dente, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving ¼ cup of the cooking liquid.
