    Samira SHF's Note:

    I like this recipe because it is so simple for such wonderful results. As with many of my recipes it is the product of trial and error. This dough is easy to work with and yummy to eat. If you are colesterol consious or if you like a less rich pasta you may substitute 2 or 3 of the eggs for about half a cup of water. Add the water gradually until the desired testure and consistency is reached. Remember to crack eggs individually into small bowl prior to adding to flour, to prevent risk of contaminating mixture with a bad egg. Lightly beat each egg before adding to the flour. The recipe time given does not include time taken for dough to prove in fridge. I strongly recommend the purchase of a pasta machine. I used to make my pasta by hand but having a pasta machine makes it so easy. Have fun!

      This was good, I will have to get a scale to weigh out the flour next time, I just guess and used about 2 cups of flour. The directions sound long, but it reallly didn't take that long. Very nice FRESH pasta! Made for PAC 09

      I was taught to make "noodles" by a home chef renown for her chicken noodle soup. This is exactly how I was taught. Making it goes fast. Cutting it for noodles goes fast. The taste is so delicious, so beyond store bought even without a pasta machine, we shall all become home chefs of renown. The only step my home chef failed to teach me was the refrigerator step. But it works for pie crust. Makes sense to me.<br/><br/>Now I make gluten free noodles with oatmeal and eggs. Delicious.

      Put the flour ingredient in cups in order to understand!
