Basic Pasta Dough

400 g Plain Flour

Turn the flour on to the bench.
Make a well in the middle and add the whisked eggs in to the well.
Slowly incorporate the flour, using your hands and bring the dough together.If dough gets sticky,add more flour.Different flavours can be added.
Wrap in a clean tea towel and rest 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, work the dough with your hands for about 5 to 10 minutes..
Work it into a rectangular shape using a little extra flour.
Open the pasta machine to the biggest setting and put the dough through.
Fold the dough into 3 after each turn then turn the dough 90 degrees and repeat the process.
