  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and a pinch of salt. Make a well in the center of the flour and crack the eggs into it.
  2. Using a fork, slowly start to incorporate the flour into the eggs until a shaggy dough forms.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
  5. After the dough has rested, use a pasta roller or rolling pin to roll it out into thin sheets. Cut the sheets into the desired shape, such as fettuccine or spaghetti.
  6. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  7. Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss to coat with the garlic and oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve hot, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
