  • Whisk together the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Push the flour to the side of the bowl to create a well for the eggs.
  • Crack the eggs into the well. With your hand stir together the flour and egg to create your dough. Stir in your water and oil.
  • Place your dough onto a lightly floured counter or in the bowl of a mixer that has a dough hook attached to it. Need the dough until it forms a nice smooth ball.
  • Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover the bowl with a towel. Allow the dough to rest for at least an hour.
  • Divide your dough into six even pieces. Roll the dough to your desired thickness, I normally go to number two on a pasta roller.
  • Lay the dough out onto a lightly floured counter top and repeat with the remaining pieces of dough.
  • After about five minutes of sitting on the counter flip the sheet of dough so the other side has a chance to get a skin to it.
  • You can now cut the dough into your desired shape. I personally like to make mine into strips that are fettuccini noodle size and length.
