The Social Cooking Way

  1. Lightly whisk eggs, 10ml of water and oil together.
  2. Place flour, liquids and squid ink in a food processor and mix on high speed for 30-60 seconds. As soon as it starts to come together stop the food processor or add the extra water if too dry.
  3. Knead to form a ball, wrap in cling film and rest at room temperature for 20 mins. Prepare the topping.
  4. Take a quarter of the dough, flatten and dust with flour. Keep remaining dough covered to prevent drying out. Using a pasta machine, roll the pasta through the thickest setting. Fold in half and roll through again. Repeat this 6 times, folding after each time until dough is smooth and soft. Repeat for the remaining dough.
  5. Roll each piece of pasta through the machine, reducing the setting each time until you have a smooth, thin sheet. Make sure to dust with flour regularly to prevent the dough from sticking. Lay flat and rest for 10 minutes. Using the fettuccine setting on the pasta machine, roll each sheet through.
  6. Lay flat or on a pasta dryer and rest for 10 minutes to dry slightly and prevent the pasta from being too soft.
  7. Bring a large pan of water to the boil with a scant handful of salt. Once boiling, carefully add the fettuccine, stirring gently and cook for 2-3 minutes until al dente.
