Organic meatballs with homemade tagliatelle

We love homemade pasta. It’s so full of flavour and when added to a really tasty pasta dish, it’s absolutely delicious. Try this one with some of the organic sausages from Gazegill Farm. You can easily substitute the meat for vegetarian mince.
Prepare the pasta dough by placing the flour in a bowl. Make a well then crack the eggs into the middle. Beat the eggs with a whisk or fork until they are smooth then using your fingers combine all the ingredients until you have a smooth dough. It’s a bit of work, but you will have a smooth dough within a five minutes. Add the olive oil toward the end to help moisten the dough a little.
You can also skip the first step by using a food processor to combine the eggs and flour until you have something resembling bread crumbs. At this point, you can then kneed this into a smooth dough. Again, add the olive oil toward the end to help moisten the dough a little.
Leave the dough in the fridge to rest for twenty minutes wrapped in cling film.
You can then flour a separate bowl and using a pasta maker feed small pieces of the dough through until you reach about setting thickness four. At this point, you can run the sheets of dough through the tagliatelle section and cover each strand with flour and drop into the bowl. This can be left covered until you are ready to use.
