Basic Pasta Dough


2/3-cup all-purpose flour
1tbsp water
1tbps salt
1tsp olive oil


Make a well in the middle of the flour on a rolling board. Combine egg with water, oil and salt.
Pour into the flour well. Work the mixture with your hands, folding and kneading the dough over and over. The dough should be well mixed and no longer sticks to your hands.(About 10 minutes) Let the doughball stand for about 1-hour.
Roll and stretch the dough a little at a time until it is paper thin. Cut the pasta into 1/8-inch strips and hang to dry on a pasta rack. Let dry at least 30 minutes. Cook in salted boiling water. (Serves 4)
