  • 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>
