Basic Pasta

Ingredients

  • 450 g/1 lb strong flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Method

Sift the flour with the salt into a processor. Process with the eggs and enough oil to give a crumbly dough. Gather together the dough to form a ball, wrap in clingfilm and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

If you don’t have a processor, work the eggs into the flour and salt by hand, gradually adding enough oil to give a firm dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, then wrap in clingfilm and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough and cut into required shapes.
