Homemade Pasta

I know some people think this is to hard but its really not. There is nothing like homemade pasta especially with the Chicken Scampi!

2 c flour
pinch salt
3 eggs

Place flour and salt in food processor and crack eggs in through the top while the processor is going. Process until it forms a dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and either roll out by hand until it resembles a thick sheet of cloth or put through a pasta machine. It can be tough to roll out but the thinner the better. Take pasta sheet and drape over the oven handle or back of a chair to dry out for 15 minutes. Either roll it into a long roll and then cut to make noodles (like you would a cinnamon roll), or use a ravioli cutter to make ravioli. The noodles do get bigger when cooked so cut a little thinner than you would like them to be. Cook pasta in boiling water for 2-5 minutes or until it gets a lighter color and floats.
