Plain Pasta Dough

Basic Recipe 68

Ingredients

  • 500 g Italian ‘00’ pasta flour, sifted twice
  • 300 ml Egg mix (3 Whole free-range eggs plus additional egg yolks)
  • 20 ml Olive oil
  • 60 ml Water
  • Salt

Method

Place the flour with a large pinch of salt into the bowl of a food processor. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks until liquified. With the motor running, add the egg, olive oil and water in a steady stream. Continue to process until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out the dough onto a work surface and knead for 5 minutes to a smooth ball of pasta. Wrap the pasta in clingfilm and refrigerate for 1 hour before rolling out through a pasta machine.
