Make your own pasta
Place 500 g flour on a clean work surface then create a well.
Add 6 free-range to the well then carefully incorporate into the flour, with 1 T olive oil and ½ t salt, until a dough begins to form.
Knead the dough until supple, then cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Dust the work surface with some semolina flour then, using a rolling pin or pasta-rolling machine, roll out the pasta dough to your desired thickness.
Using a flower-shaped cookie-cutter, cut out flower shapes from the dough.
Place a saucepan of water over a high heat. Add a little salt then bring to the boil.
Add the pasta cutouts then cook for a few minutes, until al dente.
