Fresh Pasta.....Making a Dough

Very easy..
2 pounds of flour
8 eggs
4 spoons of olive oil
water as necessary

Sift the flour in a bowl. Make a hole in the center, and place the eggs and the olive oil.Start mixing with your hands. Apply water as necessary until you have a smooth dough that do not stick in your hand.

I have a pasta maker. Staring in the lower number of a pasta maker, pass the dough through the rollers. Fold the dough in half, and pass it through again until smooth (usually four times per number). Usually, in my pasta maker, I like the thickness of #6 to make fettuccine or spaghetti.
