I HAVE MADE PASTA!

It was a lot easier than I expected it to be, although I have to admit that I screwed up the first ball of dough.

If you have a mixer, put 1.5 cups semolina flour into the mixer. On top, add 2 eggs beaten with 2 tbsp water and 2 tbsp olive oil. If you are doing this by hand, make a mountain out of the flour, and put the mixture in the middle, like a volcano, and beat in the flour a bit at a time with a fork.

Once you have an elastic ball that doesn't stick to anything but itself, let it rest in a plastic bag for about 20 minutes.

Now, if you don't have a super sexy pasta machine, just roll out the dough to desired thickness and cut with a knife into whatever shapes.

If you DO have a super sexy pasta machine, roll the pasta, SUCKAS!!


And if you don't have a pasta drying rack, use what's on hand!
