Handmade Pasta

It's quick and easy to make. No more store dried pasta.


  • 2 cups plain flour (your choice)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs


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.

Servings: 2-4

MYO pasta is the boss! I have several recipes but will certainly try this one the next time I'm in the mood for Italian. You can also just rough cut the rolled dough into 3-4" wide sheets and use it in lasagna - No need to cook first nor to add extra liquid to the sauce, as with no-cook noodles.


Gail, when you say "plain flour," I assume you mean white, wheat, or combo of both--right? Have you ever tried "funky flours"--oat, almond, or the like? Semolina?
