Ready In:
2 1/2 cups




  • On a work surface (a tray this can get messy) make a mound with the flour.
  • Then add the egg. Mix with hands until well blended.
  • Once the dough has come together, then knead the dough for about 5 minutes. The more kneading the better. When the dough is ready it should be soft and silky. There should be no clumps of flour.
  • First, flour the dough lightly.Then, either using a rolling pin or a pasta machine, flatten out the dough. Make the dough very thin. Finally, using a knife or the pasta machine, cut the dough to the desired shape.
  • To cook boil water with salt, and a little bit of olive oil. Add the pasta. Cook until it floats to the top. Bon Appetite.

  1. Bueno, bueno, wonderful! This is the best. OMG, with homemade chicken soup like at the Soup Plantation, this is the absolute best. Thank you for posting!
  2. We make homemade pasta at our church at least once a year (for chicken & noodles) but that is in mass quantities, so I was curious to try this small amount. My problem came when rolling it out, I just couldn't get it thin enough. I went ahead and tried to cook it but it was just too thick and wouldn't get cooked through. I'm going to try this again when I can borrow a pasta machine from church to do the rolling out as I think the dough itself is probably perfect, it was just user error on my part! Thanks for sharing this - I will be back when I have tried it again!
