    1. Mix together flour, salt and baking powder. Add warm water and butter; knead dough until stiff. Let rest a few minutes. Roll into a ball and quarter. Using 1/4 of the ball at a time, roll out 1 to 3mm thick. Cut into desired shapes. Let dry for 1 to 3 hours on flat surface.

    To cook fresh pasta...

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the pasta, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Fresh pasta cooks very quickly. It will float to the surface when fully cooked. Drain, and use as desired.

    Excellent pasta without egg.  -  11 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    As suggested, I subbed in 2 eggs and milk. Subbed oil for butter. Very easy to work with and rolled out perfectly without having to use any extra flour.  -  06 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I rolled out the dough by hand and made ravioli with it. Very Good. My hubby loved it better than store bought.  -  29 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
