Mix until mixture begins to form a ball.
If the dough is dry, add more water one tablespoon at a time.
The dough should be firm and not sticky.
Knead for 5 minutes by hand.
Form dough into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
The dough is now ready for ravioli, lasagna, fettuccine, or cannelloni.
