1 tsp olive oil

Mix well. Sprinkle the kneading surface with the remaining 1/2 cup flour.
Turn the dough out onto the floured surface. Knead till the dough is smooth
and elastic. (8 to 10 minutes).

each fourth of dough into a 12 inch square. If using a pasta machine, pass dough
through machine till 1/16 inch thick. Dust with additional flour, as necessary
