Fresh Pasta

I love making fresh pasta, there is something very relaxing about it.


5 cups of tipo 00 flour
6 large organic eggs


Place the flour on a clean top and make a well in the center. Crack the eggs into the well and incorporate the flour from the sides to make a smooth dough. Need the dough for about 10 minutes if you have time as this makes a nice firm pasta that will not be soft when cooked. Run it through the pasta machine or roll by hand and coat with semolina so it doesn't stick together. Cover with a damp tea towel until ready to cook as it will dry out fairly quickly. Drop pasta into salted boiling water and boil for 2 - 3 minutes until al dente.
