Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 1/3 cups high quality organic flour
  • extra flour for dusting

Instructions

  1. Place flour in a large mixing bowl. Break all 6 eggs in a small bowl. Create a crater in the middle of the flour and add the eggs.
  2. Using a fork mix flour and eggs and once it starts to create a doughy mixture, mix it together with your hands. If the flour is not completely binding with the eggs, you can add a little water to get the right consistency.
  3. Create a ball of dough from the mixture, dust with some flour and cover with a damp paper towel or kitchen towel.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  5. Cut the dough into 4 pieces. Take one piece of the dough you have previously cut and roll it using a rolling pin, until paper thin. Transfer to a cookie sheet. Place in the oven for a few minutes to dry out a little. Once the dough seems dry but still soft and doesn't crack, transfer it to a cutting surface and cut it in long rectangles 3 inches wide, or wider if you prefer longer pasta. Stack the rectangles on top of each other and start cutting thinly the sheet in width.
  6. Now that you have the thin angel hair noodles spread them on a sheet placed on a flat surface to completely dry out. The pasta shouldn't be wet, otherwise it won't store well.
  7. Repeat the steps for the remaining dough balls.
  8. For cooking the pasta: bring a large pot of water, salt and a splash of olive oil to a boil. Cook pasta for 2 minutes and drain. Mix in a small amount of olive oil to prevent sticking.
  9. For storage: after the pasta is completely dry, transfer to a paper box, cover it and store in a dry place for up to 3 months.
