Fresh Egg PastaCuisinart Original Recipe
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
Place the flour and salt in the Cuisinart™ mixing bowl. Insert the flat mixing paddle. Mix dry ingredients together on speed 2. Add eggs one at a time and continue to mix on speed 2 for about 1 to 2 minutes. Replace the flat mixing paddle with the dough hook and knead the dough on speed 4 for 3 minutes.
Remove dough and wrap in plastic. Allow to rest for at least 15 minutes.
Assemble pasta attachment to the stand mixer. Turn machine to speed 3. Run the dough through the machine. Place small, gumball sized pieces (no larger than ¾ inch) of the pasta dough through the hopper. Should any pieces get stuck in the feed tube, gently tap with the back end of the wrench.
Be sure to separate pasta strands once cut from the extruder. Lightly toss bundles of pasta with cornmeal to prevent sticking.
