Basic pasta dough

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus resting
  • Cooking time: 0 minutes
  • Total time: 10 minutes, plus resting
  • Serves:4 as a main course


    300g super fine 00 grade pasta flour
    3 large eggs 


    1. Put the flour and eggs in a food processor with a pinch of salt. Whizz until it forms a coarse crumb. Take a little of the crumb between your fingertips and work into a dough. It should come together easily and feel firm and a little tacky. If it’s stiff and dry then add a little more beaten egg or a few drops of water. If it’s soft and sticky, add a little more flour.

    2. Tip the mixture onto a work surface and knead into a dough. Carry on kneading for about 5 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Wrap in cling film and leave to rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes (or up to 4 hours).
