 +====== Basic Egg Pasta Dough ======
 +===== Ingredients =====
 +| 1 | Egg |
 +| 100g | Flour |
 +Additionally,​ add herbs, tomato paste, spinach, etc. for flavour.
 +You can also use other kinds of flour - for example 20% horse chestnut flour to 80% normal strong flour.
 +===== Instructions =====
 +Mix all ingredients together and ensure that the dough is relatively dry.
 +Keep adding a sprinkle of flour and kneed it in, until the desired consistency is achieved.
 +===== Tips =====
 +In your pasta maker, roll the pasta on the widest level 6 times, each time, folding the
 +resulting pasta together onto itself - this will give you a nice elasticity.
 +Then, on each smaller level (or every other smaller level), roll the dough through twice.
 +Make sure that you regularly flour the dough so that it does not stick.
 +Cut, then simmer for 1-3 minutes (depending upon the size of your pasta).
