Ingredients

  • 4

    large eggs

  • 3 1/2

    cups unbleached all purpose flour

Directions

Method On a table or silpat place 3 1/2 cups of flour down and in the center form a bowl and place the 4 eggs inside. With a fork begin to work together the eggs and flour. When all the flour is integrated with the eggs begin to knead the dough for a few minutes, just long enough for everything to come together. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap for about 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes, split the dough, using a french rolling pin begin to roll out the dough. If you want spaghetti roll the dough very thin, it will take a while without a machine, but the results with a rolling pin are very good. Once you have the dough thin enough you can use a long, thin knife to cut the dough into long strips. You can then use the pasta immediately. Place in boiling water with about 2 tablespoons of salt and the spaghetti will be ready in 5 minutes. For ravioli just roll out two sheets and create a simple filling (cheese, sausage, and herbs) and use a biscuit cutter to form the packet. Place in salted boiling water for 5 minutes.
