  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Semolina 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Eggs 3 Medium
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

MAKING
1. On a flat surface, mix the all purpose flour, semoline flour and salt.
2. Make a well in the middle of the mix and add eggs and olive oil.
3. Stir the egg and olive oil and start combining the flour around slowly.
4. Once the mix is solid enough, use your hands and knead.
5. If the dough is too dry, use more olive oil or water.
6. Continue kneading the dough for about 15 minutes until smooth.
7. Cover the dough with saran wrap and let it relax for at least an hour at room temperature so that the gluten develops.
8. Spit the dough into two halves and roll out as thin as possible using a rolling pin.
9. Use a knife or a dough cutter and make any desired shape you want.

SERVING
10. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water and cook and serve with sauces of your choice.

TIPS
You can sprinkle some semolina flour and refrigerate it for up to a week.
