How to Make Pasta in the Food Processor

Makes about 1 pound pasta dough; enough pasta for 4-6 servings

What You Need

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs

Measuring cups and spoons
Food processor


  1. Combine the flour and salt. Combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Pulse a few times to combine.
  2. Add the eggs. Crack the eggs on top of the flour.
  3. Process for 30-60 seconds. Put the lid on the food processor and process for 30-60 seconds until the dough comes together into a rough ball.
  4. If dry, add water. If the dough doesn't come together after a minute and looks like small pebbles or cous cous, add a teaspoon of water and process again. Repeat until the dough comes together.
  5. If sticky, add flour.  If the dough is sticky and smears against the sides of the bowl, add a tablespoon of flour and process again. Repeat until the dough comes together.
  6. Knead the dough into a smooth ball. Remove the dough from the food processor. Knead against the counter a few times until it comes together into a smooth ball.
  7. Rest the dough for 30 minutes. Dust the dough with a little flour and place it in a small mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
