Pasta Dough Recipe (serves 4):
- 3 tbsp water
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 pinch of salt
- 400 g white flour plus a little more for rolling out
In a large bowl, mix the water, eggs, olive oil, and salt until well-incorporated. Add the flour and form a dough, first by using a spatula, and then, by using your hands. As soon as the dough begins to form and it is starting to get difficult to work with g in the bowl, transfer the dough onto your work surface and knead it well with your hands for approx. 7 minutes until it’s smooth and supple. Shape the dough into a ball, cover it with foil and let it sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Cut the dough into 3 parts, put 2 parts back into the fridge with the foil. Roll out one portion into a rectangular of approx. 40 cm length and 25 cm height (15×10 inch) as thin as possible on a lightly floured work surface until the dough is translucent (approx. 1 mm). Continuously remove the dough from the work surface while rolling it out, so it won’t stick to the surface. Dust the dough with a little flour, fold the long side from the top and bottom into the middle.
Dust again with a little flour and fold the already folded long sides in the middle once again.
Cut into strips approx. 0.5 cm wide with a sharp knife. Unfold the strips to create Tagliatelle. Repeat with all of the pieces, using all leftover dough from all the batches. Place the Tagliatelle on a lightly floured cutting board.
