2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling and dusting 3 large eggs 2 tablespoons olive oil
Mound the flour onto your work surface and make a large well in the center. (Tip: I use my measuring cup to carve out a deep, perfect well about 5 inches in diameter.)
Crack each egg into the well, followed by the remaining ingredients in your chosen pasta recipe.
Using a fork, beat the eggs and oil (plus any herbs, vegetable juice, or squid ink, if using) until well combined.
Little by little, add the flour to the egg mixture and beat until all of it is incorporated.
