Who doesn’t already have everything you need to make fresh pasta? It’s really super simple so here’s a recipe to make homemade pasta in the food processor.
Fresh Egg Pasta Dough
2 1/2 cups flour, plus extra for dusting
2 Tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
|Add the flour to the work bowl.
Fit a food processor with the metal blade. Add 2 cups of the flour to the food processor work bowl. Set the remaining 1/2 cup flour nearby; you’ll use it later to adjust the consistency of the dough.
|Add the eggs and oil.
Crack the eggs against a flat surface and drop them into a small glass measuring cup. Check for shells, then add the olive oil to the measuring cup. Pour the egg-oil mixture into the processor.
|Mix the dough.
Process the mixture until the flour is evenly moistened and crumbly; this will take about 10 seconds. Pinch the dough to test its consistency.
|Lightly knead the dough.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead lightly until it feels damp without being sticky and is an even yellow color with no streaks of flour, 1 to 2 minutes.
Let the dough rest.
Shape the dough into a ball. It will be quite elastic at this point and would spring back on itself if you attempted to roll it out. Cover the ball with a large overturned bowl and let it rest for 30 minutes before rolling.
