Basic Authentic Italian pasta recipe!

Here is a quick and simple pasta recipe for the lover of fresh made pasta. Pasta is a Italian favorite all over the world and nothing beats making it yourself. Fresh pasta can be used in so many different ways and is so easy to make So people shouldn't be afraid to have a go.


- 250g strong flour (tipo '00')
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 large egg (free range is best)
- pinch of salt
- 1tbsp water

Makes 350g pasta


To make the pasta you will need to either make it by hand or in a mixer, the latter being the fastest. For the latter place all pasta ingredients into mix and blitz for around 3Min's until a coarse breadcrumb effect is achieved tip onto lightly floured surface and work it together with your hands bringing all the mix into one ball. Knead the pasta until it becomes smooth and elastic. Usually around 6-8 Min's. For tips on making it by hand check my sweet strawberry pasta recipe.

Once the pasta becomes elastic and smooth wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for 1hr

When working with the pasta make sure it is rolled out very thinly.
