Step 1

Make the pasta: Put the flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse. In a measuring cup, mix together the eggs, salt and water, and pour through the feed tube into the food processor while running. Process until the dough forms a ball and sticks to the blade, about 30 seconds. Add more water or flour as necessary to achieve the right consistency – a smooth, homogenized, compact dough. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and knead a few times, just to bring it together. Wrap the dough in plastic and let rest for an hour. Roll dough paper-thin. Cut 3" by 3". Cook 6 at a time in 4 qts. boiling salted water for 5 minute and drain.
