Pasta dough

Mix the flour, saffron and salt in a bowl. Add the eggs and oil, mix, knead for approx. 15 mins. to form a smooth dough. Shape into a ball, then leave to rest for approx. 30 mins. at room temperature under a bowl rinsed in hot water.

To shape/dry

Quarter the dough, roll out in batches to approx. 2 mm thick (either by hand or using a pasta machine). Cut out stars of approx. 3-4 cm in diameter. Place the stars on a floured tea towel, cover with a second towel, leave to dry for approx. 4 hrs.

To cook

Just before serving, cook the pasta in boiling salted water for approx. 3 mins. until al dente, then drain.

Good to know
Tip: If the dough is too dry, knead in a little water until it is smooth. If it is too moist, knead in a little flour.
Note: The pasta dough stars must be cooked immediately prior to serving so that they remain al dente.
