In a large bowl, sift flour and salt. Make a well in the middle add the oil and 3 eggs. With a blunt knife start to work the dough together. Pop your hands in now and bring the dough together work it into a ball.
Then bring it out and knead it for about 5 minutes on a floured surface, until it feels smooth and elastic.
Put it back into the bowl and cover for 15 minutes; this is letting it rest. Either roll it out on a board till very thin then cut long ribbons, or if you have a machine, roll it out through your machine and then through the cutters. Hang in a warm spot on a rod while you are waiting for the water to boil.
This should only take 3-5 minutes to cook. Make your favorite sauce and enjoy your own pasta.

This is the easiest and best pasta recipe I have ever found! It came with my pasta maker, 5 whole eggs to 1 pound of flour. If the dough is too dry, add a small amount of cold water.
