Keep it fresh
Most pasta recipes require eggs, but any old eggs won’t do. Fresh eggs are your best bet for high-quality flavor. Flattish yolks and watery whites can affect texture of your pasta dough and make it difficult to thread it. However, if you’re seeking extra flavor and silkier pasta, use more yolks. Professional chefs suggest adding three yolks for every egg white. Remember to always use eggs at room temperature!
