  1. The technique

Well, the truth is, all you need to make a good fresh pasta dough is big muscles and plenty of love for food. You’ve got them both, don’t you?! Just make sure to have a worktop, a rolling pin and a sharp knife. That’s all the equipment it takes.

2. Flour

Although there are hundreds of flour types on the market, you should probably choose a specific one to make fresh pasta. Usually, it requires flour type ‘00’. The number shows that it’s very finely milled, which is great for this recipe. What’s more, you might need to look at the protein percentage. Everything that’s between 10 and 12% is super! So, let loose and make that pasta dough!

3. Eggs

These are not just a simple addition to the whole mixture. Eggs are there for a reason! They tend to give the dough what it needs in order to get smooth and all “shiny”. Plus, be sure to look for the correct ratio egg white:yolk. The rule here is simple. The more yolk, the richer the pasta; the more white – the more elastic the dough.
