    • Basic Pasta Recipe

      Here is a simple, do it yourself, basic pasta recipe. This is a flavorful pasta this is simple to prepare.

      2 egg, beaten
      1 teaspoon salt
      2 cup all-purpose flour
      4 tablespoons water

      Directions
      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.
      Knead on a lightly floured surface for 3-4 minutes. Roll dough out to desired thinness, (either by hand or by pasta machine).

      Liss' Notes: *S* Someone bought my kids a playdough machine for christmas, so I use theirs. A friend of mine swears by pressing the dough through a metal colander.. .. I've watched her do it.. but to each his own.)
      Use machine or knife to cut into strips of desired width.

      ( Cook fresh noodles in boiling salted water for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain.)
      You can also add herbs to the flour, like basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram, whatever. We've even added Chili Pepper <G>


      Whole-Wheat Pasta

      1 Egg
      1 ts Vegetable oil; optional
      1 tb To 2 water; if needed
      Prepare as directed above.

      Are you suppose to do something special with the maple syrup after it is cooled in order to put it in the batter?
