This is the way I make pasta and it always turns out well. Add your favourite herbs and black pepper for something a little different. I often throw in handfuls of fresh chopped basil.

Wonderful!!! I have tried a few other recipes and this was my far the best. The dough was a dream to work with, no issues with sticking in my pasta machine. Can't wait to try

Perfect for ravioli when you're out of eggs or even when you aren't. It rolls out lovely and thin. However it does benefit from sitting for a few minutes before you begin.
