Pasta dough

  • 500g flour (ideally, half of it is semolina flour, but not important)

  • 3 dl of eggs at room temperature (e.g. about 3 whole eggs and 4-5 yolks)

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store in fridge for about 1 hour before using.

Make about 6-8 portions for the pasta roller. Keep the dough wrapped tightly to prevent it from drying while rolling out the portions.
