Mix flour and salt and form a little mound.
Make a hole in the center of mound to form a well.
Add an egg to center of flour mound.
Beat egg until thickened. Slowly incorporate surrounding flour by adding a little at a time, mixing it in with each addition.
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.
Take your dough out of Saran Wrap. Flatten the dough with your hands so that it is 1-inch thick and sprinkle with a little flour on both sides.
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.
Attach desired shape and size of pasta roller and feed dough through.
You have made your pasta. Just allow the pasta to dry for storage. Or you can cook the pasta right away.
To cook pasta: Cook pasta like regular pasta in boiling water until the desired doneness.
