Directions

Making dough:

  1. Step 1 Place flour in processor. Add eggs. Using on/off turns, blend until clumps of moist dough form (do not process into ball).

    For this step you will need

  2. Step 2 Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface; shape into ball. Knead until smooth, sprinkling lightly with flour if sticking, about 3 minutes.

Rolling dough into sheets:

  1. Step 3 Cut dough into 8 equal pieces. Cover with plastic wrap. Set pasta machine to widest setting. Flatten 1 dough piece into rectangle; run through machine.
  2. Step 4 Fold in half crosswise (end to end) and run through again. Continue, adjusting machine to narrower settings after every 2 passes and dusting with flour as needed to keep from sticking, until pasta sheet is 22 inches long (scant 1/16 inch thick).
  3. Step 5 Place sheet on lightly floured work surface; cover with plastic. Repeat with remaining pasta pieces.

Cutting dough into strands:

  1. Step 6 Uncover sheets and let stand until slightly dry but still pliable, about 20 minutes. Fit machine with appropriate cutter and run sheets through, cutting into tagliolini (1/8 inch wide), tagliatelle (1/4 inch wide), fettuccine (1/2 inch wide), or pappardelle (3/4 inch wide) and dusting with flour to keep from sticking.
  2. Step 7 Cut strands crosswise into desired lengths. Using floured hands, toss strands to separate; spread out on towels.
  3. Step 8 Cook pasta in pot of boiling salted water until just tender, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes.
