FRESH PASTA DOUGH
Mound 2 cups flour on work surface; make well in centre. Crack 3 eggs into well; sprinkle with ¼ tsp salt. Using fork, beat eggs. Starting at inside edge and working around well, gradually stir flour into egg mixture to form soft dough. Sift flour remaining on work surface; discard any bits of dough. On lightly floured work surface, knead dough, dusting with some of the remaining flour, until smooth, elastic and no longer sticky, about 10 minutes. Shape into disc; wrap in plastic wrap. Let stand for 20 minutes. Cut dough into thirds; roll or press each into 5-inch wide sheet. Dust with reserved flour. Makes 1 batch dough.
