Whole-egg pasta dough


Whole eggs give this pasta dough a more delicate texture that's ideal for lighter sauces.

You'll need

400 gm “00” flour, plus extra for dusting 4 eggs

Method

  • 01
  • Process ingredients and a pinch of salt in a food processor until a dough forms. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (3-5 minutes), then wrap in plastic wrap and rest at room temperature (1 hour). Divide dough into four, then, working with one piece at a time, feed through pasta machine rollers, starting at the widest setting. Lightly flour dough as you fold and feed it through, reducing settings notch by notch, until pasta is 3mm thick.
