How to make homemade pasta. - I had better results with 1 whole egg, 2 yolks, 2 c flour, 2 tbs olive oil and 2 tbs water. You can add a dash of garlic powder too. Make sure to wrap in plastic wrap and sit for 10 - 15 minutes before rolling. Very easy to make but a little tedious by hand. My DH is officially spoiled so I will get a pasta roller.
