You may never go back to dry pasta after trying this.
Be sure to put a big pot of water on to boil before starting, because that takes as long as making the dough!
Put in a bowl: 1 cup flour, 1 egg, 1 tsp olive oil, and a large pinch of salt. (you can actually add as many eggs as you like for more eggy flavour.)
using your hands, mix until the wet and dry are evenly distributed. the result will be sort of flaky and clumpy, but evenly so.
add a tiny bit of water and squeeze the mixture together until it all sticks together.
set up a broomstick or some other vertical thing on which you can hang the cut dough until you are ready to cook it.
if you have a pasta machine, take a small piece of the dough (about 1/8 of it) and roll it through the widest setting of the rollers. tighten the rollers and go again, until you have reached desired thinness. We prefer dough done at 5 or 6. if the dough tears in the rollers, smash it up and try again. flouring between rollings will prevent the tearing which happens because the dough is too sticky to go through cleanly. you can use the machines cutters or cut by hand with a knife.
use lots of water and boil the pasta for only a few minutes. you can tell it's done when the color changes from yellow to white.
