Essential Fresh Pasta Dough

No elbow grease or flour-covered countertops required here, just the Bakery Chef™ quietly folding and kneading its way to smooth, perfectly-elastic dough. A quick rest, then just roll and cut. Silky homemade pasta, cooked al dente…one of life’s simple pleasures.

Serves 4



  • 00 flour icon
    1⅔ cups (8¾ oz)

    plus extra to dust

  • pinch of salt icon
    Pinch of salt
  • large egg icon
    2 large eggs
  • large egg yolk icon
    3 large egg yolks
  • olive oil icon
    1 tbsp olive oil


  • 1Assemble the mixer using the glass mixing bowl and dough hook. Put the flour and salt in the bowl. Make a well in the center. Add the eggs, yolks and oil. Slowly turn the mixer to FOLDING/KNEADING setting and mix for 5 minutes, or until the dough combines. If dough has not combined add 1-2 teaspoons water, if needed.
  • 2Turn the dough out onto a floured countertop and shape into a smooth ball. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 1-2 hours.
  • 3Use a pasta machine to roll and cut the pasta. Alternatively, for hand cut pasta, lightly dust the countertop with flour and roll the dough out, dusting both sides with flour as needed until 1/8-inch thick. Cut into thin strips. Sprinkle flour onto a clean dry dish towel. Place the pasta strips onto the dish towel and set aside for 10 minutes, or until slightly dried.
  • 4To cook, bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil, cook the pasta in two batches for 5-7 minutes, or until al dente.
  • 5Serve with your favorite pasta sauce.
