The second worst thing I’ve learned in cooking is how to make fresh pasta. Because at 2 AM in the morning when your wife wanders in to your office and says “I’m peckish, could you make me some pasta?” it doesn’t do your waistline any good.
This pasta dough comes together in just a few minutes, has a short rest time, and can be rolled out by hand.
The reason this dough is so quick to work with is the reduced number of eggs in the mixture. Just three eggs doesn’t leave a lot of room for moisture to be hanging around.
