Fresh Pasta from scratch

Description

Ingredients:

1 lb. 4 oz. durum wheat flour

4 eggs, lightly beaten

1 tsp. olive oil

pinch of salt

Directions:

Spread a little flour around your work surface. Add a pinch of salt to your flour and sift the flour into a mound. Make a well in the center of the mound and drop the eggs and oil into it. Using a fork or your fingertip, gradually work in the mixture until all ingredients are fully combined. Knead vigorously for 10 to 15 minutes. Set the dough aside to rest for 25 minutes before rolling it out as thinly and evenly as possible.

To cook the pasta, boil water in a large pot. Add salt or a little oil so that the pasta doesn't stick together. Boil the pasta in the water for about 15 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached.
