2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


Begin by whisking together the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour and salt mixture. Add the eggs and extra virgin olive oil.

With a fork, whisk the eggs and oil, slowly incorporating some of the flour from the edges of the well. When the dough becomes thick, turn the dough and left over flour out onto a clean work surface.  Knead the dough and remaining flour until you have a smooth ball of dough.

Wrap the ball of dough with some cling film and allow it to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Dust the sheet with flour again. Fold the sheet loosely into a roll. Use a sharp knife and cut the pasta into strips. Then, shake the sliced strands into a pile and dust again with flour.

Your strands are now ready to be popped into a pot of boiling water. Fresh pasta only needs 3-4 minutes to cook in salted water.

Unwrap the dough and divide the ball into 4 portions. Work with one portion at a time and leave the other portions covered to prevent drying out.

Dust your surface with flour. Start rolling the dough into a long thin sheet, dusting with flour on both sides as you go along. Roll the pasta as thin as possible, using a rolling pin. You should be able to see your hand though the sheet of rolled out pasta.

Serve with your favourite homemade pasta sauce.
