Basic pasta

2 1/2 cups white flour
2/3 cup water
1t olive oil

In a bowl, mix dry ingredients and make a well. Beat liquids and
pour into well. Mix dry ingredients until dough forms and as much
of the flour as possible is mixed in. Turn out on a floured board
or table. Flour your hands and knead dough until smooth and elastic,
dusting your hands as needed.

Roll into a ball, warp with plastic wrap (or cover with a wet towel)
and allow dough to rest 10 minutes. Cut into four pieces and shape
into desired pasta. If dough gets sticky, lightly dust with flour.

Green noodles:

Puree approximately 1/4 cup fresh or frozen spinach with the oil
and water in a blender. Mix it with the eggs and beat together
(if you're not using eggs, this just goes in as part of the amount
of water you're using). Add as usual.

Various other colorants may be used, instead of spinach:

tomato paste
pureed tomatoes
pureed beets (drained, or substitute their liquid for water)
pureed cooked carrots
