Ingredients & equipment:

1lb of fine white flour 4 eggs
salt
rolling pin
fork
(optional) pasta machine
1 quart of Co-op Pasta Sauce (Puntanesca or Diablo) grated parmesian

Preparation:

  1. Create a pile of flour, leaving an empty space in the middle.
  2. Crack open eggs and pour them into the hole that is in the middle of the flour.
  3. Pour some salt (as desired) on the flour as well.
  4. Use a fork to mix the ingredients together evenly..
  5. Next knead the flour, eggs, and salt together so there is a nice smooth dough. If the dough seems a bit dry add very small amount of water to moisten it.
  6. Knead the dough for about 10-15 minutes until it is stretchy an firm. Make sure to get any lumps out.
  7. Separate dough into 2 pieces.
  8. Once pasta is in the desired form, start cooking!
  9. Boil water in a pot & add salt for taste.
  10. Place the pasta in the boiling water & cook for about 3-5 minutes or until the noodles rise to the top. Be very careful not to over cook the pasta or it will ruin the consistency.
  11. Strain the pasta saving some of the pasta water (about a 1⁄3 of a cup).
  12. Place the cooked noodles back into the pot with the pasta water on low heat add pasta sauce and reduce liquid to your liking.
  13. Place on plate and finish with grated Parmesan and fresh herb (if available).
