Homemade pasta

Ingredients (Per Person - just multiply the ingredients by the number you will be serving):
100 grams of flour (3 1/2 ounces)
1 large egg
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil 

1. Measure out the flour using a kitchen scale if available and sift onto a large work space.

2. Using your hands, make a large "well" or circle in the middle of the flour - pushing it all out to the sides.

3. Crack eggs into the middle of the well and drizzle the olive oil on top.

4. Using a fork, begin to beat the eggs until yolks have broken up and SLOWLY begin to work in flour into the egg mixture. You only want to get a little bit of flour at a time, and beat until each addition of flour is completely worked in.

5. As mixture gets thicker, continue to beat in more flour until you are unable to use a fork because it's too thick.

6. At this point, begin to use your hands and incorporate the flour, kneading the dough to mix in all flour.

7. Continue to knead the dough working it with palm of your hand, down towards the counter. Flip the dough around and fold the top half over pushing again towards counter. You want to use this same motion to knead the dough. Continue kneading for about 10-15 minutes or until dough is completely smooth - NO cracks left in the dough.

8. Form the dough into two large balls and wrap in plastic wrap, leaving out to sit for approximately 15 minutes.

9. At this point, roll your balls into large flat discs until about 1/4" thickness - very thin. If you need to break your balls into smaller more manageable balls, that's fine.

10. Fold the pasta over on itself in about 1" folds. Cut the pasta to desired thickness, and unroll from folds.

11. Place pasta in boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes or until al dente. Really watch it, because it will cook pretty fast.

12. Serve with your favorite sauce and enjoy!
