Adapted from jcocina.com
Sift flour and salt together. Add flour, salt, eggs and water to stand mixer.
Using the paddle attachment, mix ingredients for 30 seconds. Change to dough hook attachment. Mix for 2 minutes until dough forms a ball. Remove dough ball from mixer and knead by hand for 1-2 more minutes. Add extra flour as needed to keep dough from sticking. Dough should be smooth and pliable. Allow dough to rest for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, dough can be rolled and cut using pasta-cutting machine (use your machine's specific directions) and can then be cooked immediately or refrigerated for cooking later.
Remember to keep dough well floured so that pasta won't stick together.
***Fresh pasta cooks quickly. Thin pastas will cook in 2 1/2-3 minutes. Thicker pastas may require 4 minutes.
***When boiling fresh pasta, please ensure that your pasta water is well-salted. Just when you think you’ve added enough salt, add a bit more.
