Fresh pasta is very easy to make; you can also get the whole family involved! All you need is flour and eggs or water.

Facciamo la cottura!

Ingredients:

200g pasta flour
2x eggs or 80ml of water

Method

Place flour on a clean work surface, make a well in the center and break in the eggs. With your hands, gradually mix the flour with the eggs until well amalgamated.

Knead with your hands until you obtain a soft, smooth dough. Form into a ball, wrap in cling film and leave for about 30 minutes.

Divide the pasta into four portions and place on a lightly floured work surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the pasta until wafer-thin, then cut into your shapes.

Then simply enjoy!
