Simple Pasta

4 servings (About 1 lb)

2 c all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

Make a well in the flour and pour eggs in. Beat, mixing with a little flour. Hand mix all ingredients and add a little water or flour if too stiff or dry. Knead for 10 minutes by hand or with a dough hook in a mixer. Divide into four and rest for 1 hour wrapped lightly in plastic. Roll out as thin a possible, stretching and pulling dough as you roll. Let rest 20 - 40 minutes, until leathery but not stiff. Slice on floured board and let rest 1 hour before boiling 3-5 minutes in salted water.
