Homemade Egg Pasta

Author: Toni Anderson


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour


  • Crack 3 eggs into a bowl and gently beat the eggs.
  • Add two cups of flour. Mix in the flour until dough sticks together. Add more flour or a small amount of water until the dough forms a ball.
  • Take the dough out of the bowl and knead by hand until dough forms a soft ball.
  • Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, roll out dough on a lightly floured surface. Do not roll the dough wider than the pasta machine.
  • Lightly dust the pasta machine with flour to season the machine.
  • Feed the dough into the pasta machine, turning the handle with one hand and holding the dough with the other.
  • Twist the pasta into small nests and place on parchment paper that has been lightly dusted with flour.
  • Cook pasta in boiling water for 6-8 minutes and then drain.
  • Toss with your favorite sauce like this Asiago cream sauce!


If you do not have a pasta machine, roll the dough to a 1/8 inch thickness. Use a pizza cutter to cut the desired width of pasta.
