Nothing quite like keeping it simple when it comes to fresh pasta. A quick egg dough is cut into fettuccine and cooked before getting tossed in garlic butter and tons of Parmesan. While there’s a bit of prep, once your pasta is rolled and cut, the whole recipe cooks in less than 10 minutes! Want to watch us make it?

For the Dough
- 2 1/ 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
- 3 whole Handsome Brook Farm Pasture Raised Organic eggs, plus 1 yolk
For the Garlic Butter Pasta
- Kosher salt, to taste
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 1/ 2 cups Parmesan cheese, freshly grated, plus more for serving
- 1/ 4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/ 2 teaspoon Simply Organic Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
For the dough: On a clean work surface, make a mound of the flour and using a fork, create a well. Add the eggs to the well, then whisk, slowly incorporating more flour until a rough dough forms. Using your hands, knead until a smooth dough forms, 6-8 minutes. Cover in plastic and let rest for 30 minutes.
Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to a 4-in wide rectangle that will run through a pasta sheeter. Run through the pasta sheeter until ⅛-inch thick. Using a fettuccine attachment (or roll up and slice thinly), create thin, long noodles.
For the garlic butter pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until al dente, 4-5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until lightly golden, about 2 minutes.
Drain the pasta, reserving ¾ cup pasta water, and add the drained pasta and reserved pasta water to the skillet. Slowly add in the grated cheese, while stirring constantly, until completely incorporated, about 2 minutes more. Stir in the parsley and crushed red pepper, then adjust seasoning with salt.
Divide between bowls and garnish with more grated Parmesan, then serve.
