Recipe for homemade pasta

Learn how to make pasta at home! This 4-ingredient homemade pasta recipe is incredibly easy to make and produces delicious noodles every time.

What will we need

  1. 500 g semi-coarse flour
  2. 3 large eggs
  3. ½ teaspoon of sea salt
  4. ½ tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil


  1. Pour the flour onto a clean work surface and make a pile
  2. Add the eggs, olive oil and salt to the center and gently beat the eggs with a fork so as not to disturb the pile
  3. We gently start adding flour to the egg with our hands to gradually incorporate it
  4. We continue to work the dough with our hands so that it comes together into a smooth ball
  5. Knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes
  6. The dough should be crumbly at first
  7. The dough may not seem to come together, but after 8-10 minutes of kneading it should be uniform and smooth
  8. If the dough still seems too crumbly, wet your fingers with a little water
  9. If the dough is too sticky, sprinkle more flour on the work surface
  10. Shape the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling film and let it rest for 30 minutes at room temperature
  11. Dust your work surface with a little flour, take a lump of pasta dough the size of a large orange and press it with your fingertips
  12. We set the pasta machine to the widest setting and roll out a lump of dough through it
  13. If the pasta sticks, lightly dust it with flour
  14. Roll out the pasta dough again and fold the pasta in half and roll out the dough again in the pasta machine
  15. We repeat this process five or six times, once we fold it over and put it through the machine a few times, the dough will be smooth
  16. Lightly dust both sides of the pasta with a little flour each time you roll it
  17. As soon as we roll out the pasta, we immediately shape or cut it
  18. Pasta dries much faster than you might think
  19. We don’t leave them for more than a minute or two before cutting or shaping them
  20. If we want to prevent them from drying out, we put them on a damp and clean towel, which will prevent this
Perfect homemade pasta with an amazing fine texture.
