HOMEMADE PASTA DOUGH

I have had this recipe clipping for so long, I have no idea where I got it. It is years and years old.

about 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup water
2 eggs
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt

In a large bowl with a wooden spoon, stir the flour with the remaining ingredients to make a stiff dough. On a well floured surface, knead the dough until smooth and no longer sticky. This should require around 20 kneads. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes. This makes the dough easier to roll out. (Or, if using a modern day food processor with knife blade attached, blend all ingredients 10 to 15 seconds to form a smooth ball. Do not knead the dough; wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.) Cut into your preferred shapes.

Yield: 1 lb of pasta
