Hand-rolled Pici Pasta


4 cups of all-purpose flour

1 to 1 1/4 cups of lukewarm water

4 eggs

With the flour create 4 wells–exactly like the picture above.  Crack each egg in the center of the well and mix with a fork.  When the egg is mixed into the flour, begin to add a tiny bit of water a little at a time, each time trying to mix in as much flour as possible.  When all of the flour is mixed in, begin to knead the flour. You’re going to probably do this for about 8-10 minutes.  When complete, make dough into a mound and pour a teaspoon of olive oil on top.  Cover with a dish towel and let it rest for 10 minutes.
