Makes 3/4 pound dough
This all-purpose dough can be used with your favorite ravioli recipe (like our Ravioli Filled with Beets, Butter, and Poppy Seeds), or you can try something new! Free-style a filling with ingredients you already have on hand, like roasted vegetables, leftover pot roast, or scraps of cheese.
- 7 oz (1 1/2 cups) all-purpose or tipo 00 flour
- 2 large eggs
- Combine the flour and eggs by hand or using a machine. Knead until all of the ingredients are well combined and the dough is smooth and elastic. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap or place it in a covered bowl and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
- Dust a work surface with flour. Cut off pieces of dough about the size of an egg. Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll the dough with a pasta machine or with a rolling pin into sheets about 1/16-inch thick. Cut the sheets into pieces about 12 inches long.
