How To Make Pasta, here is it.. WHAT YOU NEED: 2/3 cup flour pinch salt 1 egg mixed up with a fork rolling pin permission to make a mess WHAT TO DO: Make a little hill with the flour and dig a crater at the top, like a volcano. Put the salt and the egg in the crater and chop into the hill with the fork. Start kneading it with your fingers and keep doing it until you get a ball of dough that isn’t at all sticky. If the dough is too stiff to work, add a teaspoon of water. MORE STUFF: Let the ball sit for ½ hour. Spread some flour on a cutting board. Roll out the ball on top of the flour until you get a thin layer of dough. Use a butter knife to cut the thin dough into long strips. If you want, trim them to any length you like. Cover with a towel until they dry. SO WHAT: Boil your dried noodles. Serve in soup or with a bit of melted butter or margarine. Your noodles are held together by long strings of a protein in wheat called gluten (GLOO-ten). Gluten absorbs a lot of water, but is not dissolved in water. When you knead gluten, it’s a lot like you’re tangling up fishing line into a big, knotted and very strong mess. These tangled strings are what gives wheat paste its strength, too. The eggs in your noodles provided color, fat and water. Machine-made pasta doesn’t need eggs at all and can easily be made with water—or vegetable juices, which is where all that colored pasta comes from
