Preparation Method

Making dough using a food processor:

  1. Add all ingredients to food processor and pulse until crumbly.
  2. Pour contents onto a clean, dry counter and knead until firm and elastic, about 10 minutes. Dust hands with flour as necessary.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for at least 20 minutes.

Making dough by hand:

  1. On a cold surface, pour flour into a mound and then use a fork to form a well in the center. Add salt and olive oil to the center of the well.
  2. In a small bowl, gently whisk eggs.
  3. Add a third of the whisked eggs into the well. Gradually incorporate flour into the eggs using a fork. Once incorporated, add another third, careful not to let the eggs run out of the well. Continue mixing into the flour.
  4. Add the remaining egg, combining until the dough is crumbly.
  5. Once all the egg is incorporated, begin forming a ball with floured hands. Knead the dough until firm and elastic, about 10 minutes. Dust hands with flour as necessary. 
  6. Wrap in plastic wrap and rest for at least 20 minutes.

Rolling the dough:

  1. Roll the rested dough through a pasta machine until desired thickness, setting 5 or 6 on most pasta machines. 
  2. Send the dough through the pasta machine’s cutting attachment or cut by hand: lightly flour and then fold the dough accordion style before slicing into your desired width. After slicing, gently toss the pasta with your hands to separate the noodles.


Cooking Pasta:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. 
  2. Once the water boils, salt the water, add the pasta, reduce heat slightly, and cook until al dente, 3–4 minutes. 
  3. Strain the cooked pasta and toss with your desired sauce and serve.
