There's no taste like home-made pasta! You'll love how a simple concordance of egg, salt, flour and water yields deliciously tender pasta to use immediately or even several days later. Hint: let the pasta sheet dry for 20 minutes before cutting.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons water
In a medium sized bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the flour, add the slightly beaten egg, and mix. Mixture should form a stiff dough. If needed, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons water.
On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for about 3 to 4 minutes. With a pasta machine or by hand roll dough out to desired thinness. Use machine or knife to cut into strips of desired width.
