Homemade pasta


  • In a bowl add the flour, the eggs, the olive oil, the salt, and mix with a spoon until the dough is formed. Keep kneading with your hands until you get a thick dough. 
  • Wrap it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 1-2 hours. You can leave the dough in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Cut 1/6 of the dough and use a rolling pin to roll it out into a very thin sheet. Alternatively, pass it through a pasta machine, starting from the thinnest setting. Gradually increase the thickness setting with a little flour, in case the dough does not pass easily through the pasta machine.
  • Fold the sheets in half, 2-3 times, and use a knife to cut them into thin tagliatelle pasta. At this point, you can dry your pasta or put it in the freezer. Follow the same process for the whole dough.

To assemble

  • In a pot with boiling water add some salt, the pasta, and boil it for 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness. Drain and set aside.
  • Place a frying pan over high heat and add the butter. 
  • Once the butter melts and is very hot, add the whole clove of garlic, the thyme, the pasta, and mix.
  • Add 50 g of the pasta water and mix.
  • Serve with gruyere cheese, pepper, and basil.
