Homemade Pasta Recipe

For some of the world, noodles are traditionally made with merely flour and water. In other parts, traditional pasta is made with flour and eggs. But for modern cooks who like things richly flavorful yet easy to put together, pasta is made with flour, eggs, olive oil, and salt. This gives the greatest elasticity to the dough and makes the pasta light and rich as it cooks. Make sure you give yourself time to knead the dough and let it rest properly. These steps are essential for achieving a soft, elastic dough.
