Basic Egg Pasta (Italian)














Low in Saturated Fat, Trans-fat Free, Sugar-Free, Low Sodium


1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup durum semolina flour
or more regular flour
1 dash salt
2 large eggs
1 x water
as needed


Place flour and salt in a mound on table.

Make a well and add eggs.

With a fork, mix the flour slowly into the eggs and blend well.

Add water if too dry.

Gather into a ball and knead for 5 to 10 minutes.

Cover with a bowl or place in plastic bag for 30 minutes.

(Dough can also be made in a food processor). Roll dough out by hand or use a hand crank pasta machine to cut desired shapes.


Bring a large pot of water to a full rolling boil.

Add the fresh pasta and cook until it floats on the top (this will only take a few minutes).

Taste test a strand; it should be cooked but still have a bite.

Drain very well and dot with butter to prevent sticking.

Serve at once with your desired sauce.
