Method

Pasta

  1. Put the flour and eggs into a bowl and mix into a dough.
  2. Knead well for 2 minutes then cover and leave for 15 minutes.
  3. Cut the dough into golf ball sized pieces.
  4. Dust the pasta machine with flour and pass each dough piece through the widest, flat roller. Fold it in half and pass it through again. Repeat this step twice more.
  5. Dust the dough sheet with flour and set aside.
  6. Process the remaining dough balls in the same way.
  7. Decrease the roller width a little and pass each sheet through that a couple of times.
  8. Reduce the roller width further and pass the dough through again.
  9. To make tagliatelle pass the dough through the slicing rollers or use a knife to cut the dough into strips.
  10. Dust the uncooked pasta with flour to stop it sticking together.

For cooking

  1. Put the water and salt into a large saucepan and bring it to a rolling boil.
  2. Add the pasta and stir to ensure it is free flowing in the water.
  3. Cook for 3-12 minutes, depending upon the size and thickness of the pasta. Fresh pasta cooks more quickly than dry pasta.
  4. When cooked drain the pasta and serve immediately on its own or drizzled with a little oil.
