Basic Egg Pasta
(Adapted from Kitchen Aid)
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon water
3 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Place eggs, water, flour and salt in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater. Turn the Speed to 2 and mix 30 seconds.
Remove dough from bowl and hand knead for 1 to 2 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and let dough rest for 15 minutes. Divide dough into 4 pieces before processing with Pasta Sheet Roller Attachment.
Flatten each piece slightly.
Set adjustment knob on Pasta Sheet Roller at 1 by pulling the knob straight out and turning to setting 1. Release knob, making certain pin on roller housing engages opening on the back of the knob, allowing the knob to fit flush to the roller housing. Turn mixer to Speed 2 or 4. Feed flattened piece of dough into rollers to knead. Fold dough in half and roll again. Repeat folding process several times, until dough is smooth and pliable and covers the width of the roller. Lightly dust pasta with flour while rolling and cutting to aid in drying and separation.
