Pasta all'uovo fatta in casa: pappardelle

Tagliatelle, Pappardelle, ravioli and tortellini: raise your hand if you don't like HOMEMADE EGG PASTA. A great tradition of northern Italy, Emilia Romagna in the lead, which has always represented Italian cuisine in the world in the collective imagination. Very easy to do, the only suggestion is to buy a machine, even very small, to pull a thin pastry. If you're heroic, though, you can do like the Emilian vents and pull the pastry by hand with the rolling pin. I always do it when I prepare it for two people, but for larger quantities I use the machine and then cut by hand.

We give you the ingredients for 100 grams of egg pasta, who are obviously to be multiplied based on how much you want to do. Remember that the homemade egg pasta is very light and crispy and enough for one person is 80 grams, while for the HARD WHEAT SEMOLA PASTE, heavier, you need at least 130 grams depending on the size.
