Easy pasta


If you’re not able to buy pasta, this recipe is quick, easy and only uses 2 ingredients!

If you don’t have a pasta machine to roll and cut your pasta, a rolling pin and knife works just as well. These measurements will make enough for 2 hungry people. You can make larger quantities by adding more flour and eggs, just make sure for every 100g of flour you use, you add another egg.


  • 200g ‘00’ flour (or plain flour)
  • 2 Eggs


  1. In a large dish place your flour and create a well in the centre
  2. Add your eggs into the well
  3. Using a fork, start to combine the flour into the eggs until you get it to a consistency where you can start to use your hands. Continue to bring together with your hands until you have a dough
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for around 5 minutes.
  5. Shape your dough into a ball, cover with cling film and let it rest for at least half an hour.
  6. Once you are ready to use your pasta, take your dough and begin to roll it out on a floured surface until you have it to the thickness you want (ideally 2-3 millimetres)
  7. Take the longest edge of your dough and roll it up
  8. Take a sharp knife and cut into sections around 1 cm thick.
  9. Place your pasta into a pot of boiling, salted water. Cook for 3 minutes, then check it and if preferred, continue to cook for another minute or 2.
