Hand Made Pasta

Smashmouth Marketing

3 c all-purpose flour 2 large eggs 3 tbs water 1 tsp olive oil 1/2 teaspoon salt On a clean surface make a well with the flour. In a measuring cup mix the eggs, water and oil and salt. Pour the wet mixture slowly into the flour and mix with your 2 fingers until all of the wet is incorporated. Do not force the dough to take all of the flour. If you are going to use a pasta machine to roll out the dough you may at this point form the dough into a disk and cover with plastic wrap.

Yorkshire Pudding

1/2 c of drippings from the roast (or bacon drippings) 1 c milk 2 eggs, well-beaten 1 c sifted all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp salt I like preparing this right as it is time to sit. So take the roast out when it is ready and let it stand for 10-15 minutes while you are preparing this dish. Increase oven temp to 450. It's all about a hot oven and hot drippings. Mix the eggs and milk. Then add the flour and salt.
