For the pasta: 400-500g plain flour 4 eggs 2 pinches of salt 2 tbs virgin olive oil For the filling: Half a pumpkin 1 tsp minced garlic 1 tbs chopped chives 50g grated parmesan 100g salted macadamia nuts 1. Sieve half the plain flour into a pile on to a clean bench, create a well at the top, and add salt. 2. Crack an egg into the well and mix into the flour. Repeat until you have used all four eggs. 3. Add flour if required to help form a solid ( non-sticky) ball. Use more olive oil and flour if needed. 4. Dust the bench with flour, and knead the mixture. To do this, I just push the palms of my hands down into the mixture and away from me, then collect it up, turn the mixture and repeat. Gradually, you will notice the mixture change in texture and become smoother and more elastic. 5. Wrap in a tea towel and leave to rest.
