Basic Pasta dough recipe (with egg)

I have made many pasta recipes and they all are very similar, but I usually use this recipe that came with my pasta machine. It always turns out and it’s easy to work with.

I try and use ORGANIC “00” flour. The imported kind from Italy. However, you can use all purpose flour, but please buy Organic or at least Non-GMO. Spruce eats put out a nice article explaining the difference in pasta flours here.

  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 Tbls olive oil
  • pinch of kosher salt

Directions: Use a whisk, a sifter or a screened colander to sift flour onto your work surface. Sprinkle salt on flour. Make a well in the center of flour and add eggs and the oil. Using your fingers mix the egg into the flour until the dough is created. If it seems to dry add just a touch of water. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. It’s now ready for your favorite pasta recipe. Enjoy, and Let’s Get Cooking!
