Basic Fresh Pasta Recipe / Pasta all’Uovo
From: The Silver Spoon: Pasta book, page 163
Preparation Time: 30 minutes plus 20 minutes resting time
Basic Fresh Pasta Ingredients:
1¾ cups all-purpose flour, preferably Italian type 00, plus extra for dusting
2 eggs lightly beaten
Basic Fresh Pasta Directions:
Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a mound on the counter. Make a well in the center and add the eggs. Using your fingers, gradually incorporate the flour, then knead for about 10 minutes. If the mixture is too soft, add a little extra flour; if it is too firm, add a little water.
Shape the dough into a ball and let rest for 15 minutes.
Roll out on a lightly floured counter or use pasta machine to make a thin sheet, and cut out shapes such as fettuccine, lasagna, maltagliati, orecchiette, pappardelle, stracci, tagliatelle, taglierini, trenette and trofie.
Add Pasta to boiling water and cook for 1-3 minutes until Al dante, with practice you will learn the technique!
