  1. Pour flour onto a large bread board and form into a mound with a well in the center. Beat eggs, oil, and salt together and pour into well. Mix with fork, blending some amounts of the surrounding flour while mixing. When dough becomes stiff, knead in remaining flour with hands. A small amount of flour may be leftover.

  2. Roll dough into a ball and coat with a few drops of olive oil to keep dough moist. Place dough into a bowl and cover with a moist towel. Let dough rest for 20 minutes. Cut into manageable portions. Flatten each piece on bread board before running through thickest setting on pasta machine. Run dough through machine 2-3 times at each setting until dough is thin enough for the specific use.

  3. At this point, pasta may be cooked immediately, frozen or dried on a rack.

  4. Note: Dried homemade pasta is very fragile, handle with care.

  5. Place fresh, frozen, or dried pasta into boiling, salted water to which a few drops of olive oil have been added. Cook until tender, usually 3-5 minutes.
