Servings4 people


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoon water


  • Make a mound with the flour.
  • Create a well in the center of the flour and crack the eggs into the center.
  • Add the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of water.
  • With a fork, gently whisk the eggs with the oil and water, gently incorporating the flour into the liquid.
  • Continue incorporating the flour into the liquid until a dough is formed.
  • Gather the dough into a ball and continue incorporating the flour with your hands.
  • Knead about 4 minutes.
  • When dough is firm and yet still elastic gather it into a ball. Cover it with plastic wrap sprayed with a bit of cooking spray and let sit for 20 minutes.
  • Continue by rolling your pasta and cutting. Or, freeze the dough for later.


If needed, add an additional tablespoon of water.
NOTE: this feeds about 4 of us when served up along with sides. If you often serve up large servings you may want to make another batch.
