- 2 1/4 cups '00' flour or all-purpose flour, sifted
- 16 to 18 large egg yolks
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Semolina flour, for dusting
Place flour into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. Mix together yolks and milk in large bowl. Add salt and olive oil. With mixer on low, slowly add egg mixture to flour; mix until well combined. Increase mixer speed to medium and knead until dough pulls away from sides of bowl and is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
Transfer dough to work surface lightly dusted with semolina flour and knead until smooth. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 2 hours before rolling, or store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 1 day.
Dust work surface lightly with semolina flour. Divide pasta dough into 16 pieces and flatten each piece with the palm of your hand. Roll each piece of dough through a pasta machine, working from largest setting to smallest setting, passing dough through each setting twice. Using a 4 1/2-inch round cutter, cut pasta sheets into 96 rounds (6 per sheet). Lay pasta rounds on prepared work surface, covered with a damp kitchen towel as you work.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Working in batches, add pasta to boiling water and cook 2 minutes. Drain, and transfer to a baking sheet lined with a kitchen towel, layering kitchen towels between cooked pasta.
