Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 3 min.
Fresh pasta dough : Photo of step #1

Stage 2 - 7 min.

Turn the dough out onto a floured worktop.

Stage 4 - 1 hour

Press out quickly into a large rectangular cake, wrap in plastic film and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using.


The proportions for this dough are very easy to remember: 100 g flour to 1 egg and 4 g fine salt.

This dough tends to turn brown rapidly, so if you are making it for use the next day, add 1 tablespoonful of white vinegar to the ingredients before kneading to slow down the discolouration.
