  • As the dough begins to mix and form, fold the dough over toward you, then push it with the heel of your hand away from you. Repeat this 10-12 times until the dough starts to get firm.
  • Continue until all flour is incorporated into the egg and dough is completely formed.Next, wrap it in saran wrap and set for thirty minutes.

  • Run the dough through the pasta machine with the flat rollers set to the most open setting.
  • Roll it back through the pasta maker again. If the dough sticks, coat with a little more flour. Fold and roll the dough three more times adjusting the machine to make the pasta thin.
