  3. Crack the eggs into the well
  4. Using a fork start to incorporate the flour into the eggs, breaking the yolks and mixing it all together
  5. This bit can get a bit messy so work quickly mixing flour flour and eggs together
  6. Then you can get your hands dirty and start bringing it all together and kneading it, adding a tablespoon of water to make it into a firm ball of dough
  7. Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to rest on the work surface for 1/2 an hour
  8. Once rested you can start to roll it out, either using a rolling pin or a pasta machine
  9. We used a 1/4 of the dough to make the noodles which was enough for 2 people
  10. You can re wrap the dough and keep it in the fridge for another day and another recipe depending on how many people your cooking for
  11. You’ll need some extra flour to sprinkle on your board or rolling pin
  12. Roll out the dough until it’s nice and thin
  13. Either using a knife or the thin spaghetti cutter on the pasta machine, cut into noodles
  14. Leave on a lightly floured surface until your ready to cook
