How to make pasta

I watched many youtube videos and here are the ones I felt were the most helpful.

America’s Test Kitchen <– This one is the most helpful

Jamie’s Dream School <– This one is the most entertaining to watch

This one is nice if you like to listen to lovely music while reading the instructions on a screen –> theitaliandish

I will tell you this nifty trick… If you want a nice flavorful pasta here’s what I do. I use about 1 cup to 2/3 cup of flour for every 1 egg and instead of adding water when the dough is too dry I add a some tomato sauce or puree mix that I’ve made. Add your wet ingredient one tablespoon at a time so you don’t add too much and then you’ll have to add more flour and it will be a never ending cycle. The pasta has this wonderful subtle taste and it’s great for mixing up your pasta game. Be careful not to add too much of your liquid because it could get too runny too and not be as stiff as pasta is supposed to be.
