I have a very easy recipe for making your own homemade pasta.  I love pasta, and since boxed pastas cannot compete with fresh noodles, I wanted to share my recipe.  It is very simple and easy to modify once you get the pronciples down.  Basically it is one cup flour to one cup egg.

All you need is flour (I used All Purpose, but adding some high protein flour helps), eggs, and water.
You can mix directly on your table and use your hands, but I used a mixing bowl and fork to start.

A rolling pin and knife are needed to shape and cut your pasta.

Step 1: Add eggs and incorporate into dough

Make a indent into your flour, and break the egs into the center of the depression.  Gently beat eggs, and slowly move outward incorporating the flour bit by bit until you end up with a ball of dough.

Depending on the weather, the flour, the size of the eggs, and if you held your mouth right, you may need to add a small bit of water to totally form the dough.

Once you have a ball of dough, dump it out onto a large floured surface.
Thanks for sharing! I plan on making this soon!
