How to make pasta dough



Ingredients:
2 cups wheat flour
2 eggs
1 tblsp olive oil
½ tsp salt

Method:
 Sift the flour onto a flat surface. Crack the eggs & add in the flour. Add oil & salt. Stir the contents of the well with a fork. 




Gradually stir in more & more flour from the edge until u have a creamy paste. Using both hands heap the remaining flour from the outside over the paste in the middle & knead in. Mix 1 tblsp of water if it is difficult to knead. Knead thoroughly with the heels of your hands until a smooth firm dough ball is formed.

Cover the dough in a plastic wrap & let sit for about an hour. Roll out the dough on a flat surface to a uniform thickness. 
Dust with flour. fold together in to a multilayered strip. Slice in to 1/8 inch wide noodles.
