Welcome to the Ultimate Guide to Making Homemade Pasta! Get ready to impress your friends and family with your pasta-making skills.

2.

First things first, gather your ingredients: flour, eggs, salt, and water. That's it! No need for fancy equipment or special ingredients.

3.

Mix the flour and salt together in a bowl, then make a well in the center. Crack in the eggs and add a splash of water. Mix until a dough forms.

4.

Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. This is a great arm workout, but you can also use a stand mixer with a dough hook.

5.

Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes. This will make it easier to roll out later.

6.

Now it's time to roll out the dough. You can use a rolling pin or a pasta machine. Roll it out as thin as you like, depending on the type of pasta you want.

7.

Cut the dough into your desired shape. You can use a knife, pizza cutter, or even a pasta cutter. Don't worry about making it perfect, homemade pasta is all about rustic charm.

8.

Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes. Fresh pasta cooks much faster than dried pasta, so keep an eye on it.

9.

Drain the pasta and toss it with your favorite sauce. You can also let it dry for a few hours and store it for later use.
