No Machines Required: Simple Pasta

Here's how it began.
I had never made pasta before.  I found myself with 4 leftover egg yolks.

I searched Pinterest and Google for recipes to use up said yolks.


It is the answer.

Also, people make fun of me for pronouncing the "L" in yolk.
People can be mean.

You'll Need:
-2.5 cups flour
-4 egg yolks
-2 T. olive oil
-1/3 cup water
-cornmeal for surface


In a large bowl, place flour and create a well in the center.


Mix 1/4 cup of the water with yolks and olive oil.


Pour the wet ingredients in to the center of the flour and mix with a fork until everything is incorporated.


When the dough has come together enough to knead, place dough on a surface sprinkled with corn meal.


For about ten minutes or until dough is smooth and easy to work with, adding water as necessary (you may not need more, it just depends)


Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.  Roll out an cut into desired shapes. I made Pisarei.  Boil water with salt and cook until pasta floats and is tender.  You can also freeze the uncooked pasta shapes!
