Step 1. The quickest way to make pasta dough is using a food processor. Tip in the flour, egg yolks and oil and pulse until the mixture is breadcrumb-like. Check the consistency and add a little extra egg yolk if the mixture looks very dry. You can add extra flour if the dough gets too wet, but adding liquid to dry dough is tricky. Keep pulsing until the mixture comes together into a dough. Tip the dough out and wrap it tightly in cling film, then chill it in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.
