This simple dough can be used for every one of our recipes that calls for fresh pasta. Although quick to prepare, to save more time you can make the dough ahead and freeze. To substitute fresh pasta in a recipe that specifies dried, use 8 ounces fresh for every 4 ounces of dried pasta.
Dividing the Dough
After kneading, shape the dough into a round; do not roll out. Divide the round into fourths or whatever portion size is specified in the recipe, using a sharp knife.
Wrap each portion airtight in plastic wrap. Then store in a freezer-safe container or in heavy-duty freezer bags. The dough will keep in the freezer for up to 8 months.
