    290g Plain Flour, sieved

    2 x Medium Eggs

    2 x Medium Egg Yolks



    Add the eggs to the flour and blend until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.

    Mix with your hands to form a stiff dough.

    Knead briskly for 1 minute and wrap in cling film.

    Leave to rest for approx. 30 minutes.

    Cut the dough in half with a knife and, on a lightly floured surface, flatten each piece using a rolling pin.

    Roll out until really thin or use a pasta machine if available.

    Cut into lengths to make spaghetti, tagliatelle or small parcel shapes to make ravioli.

    Leave to dry for an hour hanging or on a wire resting tray.

    Cook in a pan of salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes.
