 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  cups          flour
      1/2  cup           semolina flour -- or more flour
           dash          salt
    2                    eggs
                         water -- as needed
 
 Place flour and salt in a mound on table. Make a well and add eggs. With a
 fork, mix the flour slowly into the eggs and blend well. Add water if too
 dry. Gather into a ball and knead for 5-10 minutes.
 
 Cover with a bowl or place in plastic bag for 30 minutes. (Dough can also
 be made in a food processor.) Roll dough out by hand or use a hand crank
 pasta machine to cut desired shapes.
 
 COOK. Bring a large pot of water to a full rolling boil. Add the fresh
 pasta and cook until it floats on the top (this will only take a few
 minutes). Taste test a strand; it should be cooked but still have a bite.
 Drain very well and dot with butter to prevent sticking. Serve at once with
 your desired sauce.
