Homemade Pasta

2 Cups 00 Flour + 1 1/2 Cups Flour + More for dusting (can use regular flour if don't have 00)
4 Large Eggs + 1 Egg Yolk
1 Tbsp Salt
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

Pour the flour on the counter in a mountain formation.  With a fork, burrow a hole in the center forming a well.  In a bowl mix the eggs, salt, evoo & garlic powder.

Pour the egg mixture into the well.  Slowly, with a fork, stir the egg mixture together gradually combining the flour from the sides.  Use a bench scrape  if necessary to pull the dough off the counter to combine.  Dough will be dry and crumbly.  Wet your hands and start to combine dough into a ball.  May have to add water 1 tbsp at a time until dough forms a combined smooth dough.  Probably kneed for about 10 minutes.

Flatten dough to about a 1" disc, wrap in plastic wrap and set on counter for about 20 minutes.

Unwrap dough and cut into 4 quarters.  Roll each quarter out with a rolling pin to about 1/2".  Place in your pasta rolling machine on the largest setting and continue down until the lowest setting.  Then place in whatever setting you want:  Spaghetti, Flat, etc.  Dust with flour.

Fresh pasta cooks in about 3 minutes in salted boiling water.

Enjoy.  Ultimate pastabilities with this recipe.
