Preparing the dough by hand
  1. 500 g soft-wheat flour
  2. 5 eggs
  3. a small amount of water
Preparing the dough with the 3 Facile Mixer
  1. 500 g soft-wheat flour
  2. 4 eggs
  3. a small amount of water, so that the liquids reach 250ml
Alternatives
  1. Instead of using 500 g of soft-wheat flour: 250 g of superfine flour and 250g of durum wheat flour
  2. Instead of 5 eggs: 250ml of water
Preparing the dough
By hand
  1. Create a well with the flour in a bowl; pour the eggs and water into the middle of it
  2. Mix the flour, the eggs and the water with a fork and knead the dough
  3. Keep kneading the dough by hand until it is smooth and sticks together. If the dough is too dry, add some water, if it is too sticky add some flour
  4. ake the dough out of the bowl and place it on lightly floured table. Continue, if necessary, to knead the dough by hand; then, cut it into four pieces.
With the 3 Facile Mixer
  1. Measure the flour and eggs out separately into the measuring cup ("Misurone")
  2. Measure out the flour in part 1 of the measuring cup ("Misurone"). Break the eggs into part 2 of the measuring cup and add water so that the liquids reach 250ml
  3. Pour the flour, the eggs and the water into the 3 Facile mixer; start the Mixer and knead for 5 minutes
  4. Take the dough out of the mixer and place it on a dish. If the dough is too dry, add some water, if it is too sticky add some flour; then, cut it into four pieces.
Preparing the sheet
  1. Set the pasta machine thickness-adjustment to 0 and pass one of the four pieces of dough through the smooth rollers. If you are using the 3 Facile mixer, fit the Sfoglia 150 accessory with smooth rollers to the mixer
  2. Lightly dust both sides of the sheet of pasta with flour and fold it in half. Feed the sheet of pasta back through the smooth rollers again: repeat these operations several times until the sheet of pasta has a long and regular shape
  3. Cut the resulting sheet into two pieces, and sprinkle them lightly with flour on both sides
  4. Set the thickness-adjustment to 1 and pass the sheet through just once; then, set the thickness-adjustment to 2 and pass the sheet through once more; then, set the thickness-adjustment to 3, and so forth until you achieve the required thickness
  5. Fit to the Atlas pasta machine or to the Mixer, if you are using the 3 Facile mixer, the selected cutting accessory and pass the sheet through the cutting rollers to achieve the required paste shape
  6. (No cutting accessories can be assembled on the Ampia pasta machine)
  7. Lastly, cook the pasta that you have made, or store it once you have left it to dry on our Tacapasta accessory for at least one hour.
Tips Fresh Pasta
  1. Do not use cold eggs straight from the fridge
  2. Do not add salt in the preparation of the dough
  3. The dough is the perfect consistency when it does not stick to your fingers
  4. The recommended thickness of the dough sheet for fettuccine is 5 on the thickness-adjustment
  5. The recommended thickness of the dough sheet for tagliolini is 7 on the thickness-adjustment
  6. The thinnest pasta sheet thickness is achieved by setting the machine on 9 and feeding the sheet of pasta through twice
  7. If the rollers are not able to cut the sheet it means that the dough is too soft. Add flour
  8. If the dough is too dry the rollers will not be able to take it in. Add water
  9. Cook the pasta in a large amount of hot water (4 liters for 1/2 kg of pasta)
