Quick Fettucine

Recipe Ingredients:


Recipe Instructions:

1.   In a food processor, blend the eggs with salt for 5 seconds. Add 7/8 cup of the flour and blend the dough. Add the remaining flour 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary, until it forms a ball.
2.   Dust the dough lightly with flour and let it set, covered with a small bowl, for 15 minutes.
3.   Set the smooth rollers of a pasta machine at the highest number. (The rollers will be wide apart).
4.   Quarter the dough, flatten 1 piece into a rough rectangle, and cover the remaining pieces with the bowl. Dust the rectangle lightly with flour and feed it through the rollers.
5.   Fold the rectangle in half and feed it through the rollers several times, dusting it with flour if necessary to prevent it from sticking. Fold it in half each time.
6.   Turn the dial down one notch and feed the dough through the rollers, dusting it with flour if necessary but without folding it.
7.   Continue to feed the dough through the rollers without folding it, turning the dial one notch lower each time, until the second lowest notch is reached.
The dough should be a smooth long strip 4 to 5 inches wide and about 1/16 inch thick. Roll the remaining pieces of dough in the same manner.
8.   Let the strips of dough dry on lightly floured jelly-roll pans or hung over the top of a straight-backed chair for 5 minutes, or until they feel dry to the touch but not brittle.
9.   Feed the strips, one at a time, through the inch cutting blade of the pasta machine. Feed one end of the strip through the blades holding the other end straight up and catch the fettuccine from underneath the machine before it goes through the rollers completely.
10.   Let the fettuccine dry on the jellyroll pans or hung over the back of the chair for 5 minutes. Makes 1/2 pound.
