An easy and fun to make recipe that only uses 4 ingredients which is simple to double or triple, depending on amount needed.


Serves: 3 

  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
  • 1-2 tablespoons water

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:6min  ›  Extra time:1hour resting  ›  Ready in:1hour26min 

  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the flour, add the slightly beaten egg and mix together. The mixture should form a stiff dough. If needed, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons water. Wrap the dough in cling wrap and let rest for 1 hour.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for about 3 to 4 minutes or until smooth and elastic. With a pasta machine or by hand roll dough out to desired thinness. Use the machine or knife to cut into strips of desired width.
  3. Cook fresh home made pasta in plenty lightly salted boiling water. Stir gently with a wooden spoon and let it come back to the boil. The pasta will rise to the surface when cooked. Drain in a colander and handle gently as it is more fragile than cooked dry pasta..

I found the mix too dry. Next time I'll try and add the water as well. - 29 Jun 2009
