3 c. flour
1 egg beaten
21/2 to 3 c. water

Directions:
Put flour on board and make a whole in center. Put egg in center along with some of the water. Work it until it becomes a sticky dough ball. Continue adding water and more flour a little at a time. Add water until dough is dry but you can knead it. Continue kneading until dough is soft and not lumpy. Put in a glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 40 minutes. Knead dough again and let rise again. Continue process until dough is very soft and smooth. Takes about 2 hours. Cut dough into small pieces and run through a pasta machine to flaten. When all of the pieces have been flattened switch pasta machine to disired shape. Cut pasta and let dry overnight on a clean cotton sheet on a flat surface. You will need a large table or spare bed for this. The next day the pasta should be dry and hard. Boil in a very large pot of salted boiling water for only 5 minutes or less. Fresh pasta cooks very quickly. This feeds about 7 - 8 people if you serve it with meatballs, salad and garlic bread.
