  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup flour (for rolling out dough and separating noodles)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons water
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil

  3. Add salt and water. Mix well.

  4. Add 1 tablespoon of oil at a time and mix until the ball holds together . If it seems too sticky, add a little of the remaining flour.

  5. Once the ball holds together, put it on a lightly floured surface and knead.

  6. Roll the ball into a rectangular shape until it is about 1/4 inch thin. Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut pasta into desired shape and width.

  7. Put remaining flour in a bowl and add strips to the bow, coating each noodle so they don't stick together.

  8. Lay floured noodles on a clean kitchen towel. Use pasta right away or put the pasta in an air-tight container or zip lock bag and refrigerate. Pasta can be refrigerated for up to three days or frozen for up to 2 months.

    **You can also lay pasta over a hanger and dry it for 2 days, then store it in an air-tight container in your pantry.
