How to Make Pasta - Step 1

Making your own fresh pasta is easy to learn and a great skill for every cook to know. Fresh pasta is world's tastier than anything you can buy in the store. It's a very simple process and uses only three ingredients. Your dinner guests, however, will be deservedly impressed. Let me show you how easy it is with my step-by-step photo instructions.


To make one pound of pasta, you need 2 cups of unbleached flour, 3 large eggs, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Place the flour in a mound on a clean countertop or cutting board and make a well in the center. Put the eggs and salt into the well.

Whisk the eggs together with a fork without disturbing the flour.
