Pasta from scratch no machine. Dough is too tough
So l did find a discussion about this but not exactly what l wanted answered. Im not a chef but l do enjoy trying out stuff in the kitchen (much to my kids joy) and this was the first ever time to try making my own pasta. I did my research first before l started so l didnt accidentally make my kids sick.
Anyway, l followed the recipe.. 2cups flour, 3eggs, salt and oil right...watched a video and we are going through this together... I let it rest for 30mins came back and started to roll and fold.. Yeah that didnt work out. Dough was snapping back and seemed too tough. So l left it again for another 10mins came back and still tough.
Im at a loss now. The dough really is difficult to roll and seems to 'shrink' just a bit so its not coming out as thin as l wanted it. Please help...lm stuck and dont know what to do. I really dont want to throw it out ld rather salvage it make it something else instead if push comes to shove
