Step 2:

In a KitchenAid mixing bowl, combine the eggs & beat well with a fork. Add extra-virgin olive oil and cold water to the eggs and mix with a fork.

Step 3:

Add half of the flour mixture to the KitchenAid mixing bowl, and use the flat beater attachment to mix for 20 seconds at speed 2.

Step 4:

Swap flat beater for the dough hook. Turn to speed 2 and knead for 2 to 3 minutes, until a dough ball is formed.

Step 5:

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour (or up to 48 hours).

Step 6:

Remove dough from refrigerator and let it rest for 15 minutes. Using your hands, roll dough into a log, about 12 inches long.

Step 7:

Cut log into 8 slices, then flatten each piece slightly. Spread slices out so they aren’t touching and cover with plastic wrap or tea towel, to prevent from drying out.

Step 8:

Add pasta roller attachment to KitchenAid. Using the widest setting (1 on the KitchenAid), turn mixer to speed 2 and taking one piece of the flattened dough, feed through rollers. Fold dough in half & roll again. Repeat 3 more times, lightly dusting the sheet of pasta in between each rolling if it feels the slightest bit sticky.

Step 9:

Move adjustment knob to setting 2 and feed the dough sheet through the rollers once. Repeat this through settings 3, 4 and 5.

Step 10:

To cut the noodles, swap the Pasta Roller Sheet attachment for the Spaghetti Cutter Attachment. Run each sheet through the cutter.

Step 11:

After cutting each sheet, hang to dry on a pasta rack. Dry for a minimum of 10 minutes. If you don’t have a pasta rack, plastic hangers or back of a chair work great! IMPORTANT: Flour the pasta rack or the plastic hangers before placing pasta on them (or line with parchment paper).

ALSO, separate the strips of pasta as best you can, so they aren’t touching. This way they won’t dry
sticking together. If you want to dry the pasta for later use, dry for several hours and then store in airtight plastic bags.

Step 12:

When ready to cook, boil your water and add salt. Fresh pasta will cook faster than commercially bought pasta – about 4 to 5 minutes in vigorously boiling water for el dente.
