Ingredients
 14 egg yolks
 2 cups pasta flour (type 00)
 flour for dusting
 1 bell pepper
 1 zucchini
 1 carrot
 1 piece of celery
 1 eggplant
 12 oz tomatoes
 1 onion
 salt
 pepper
 basil
 extra virgin olive oil

Directions for the Dough
1

Place the flour on a work surface, creating a small mound with a crater in the middle

2

Separate 14 egg yolks and add them to the flour

3

Using a fork, break the yolks; begin to beat the eggs gently.

4

With the fork, gradually pull in some flour from the inner rim of the crater, mixing continuously, the flour and eggs.

5

Support the outside of the crater with your other hand to keep the crater intact so that the egg mixture doesn't escape from the inside of the crater.

6

Continue pulling flour into the center of the crater until the dough begins to come together.

7

With your hands, begin kneading the dough, incorporating the remaining flour. If dough is still sticky, dust the work surface with additional flour and continue kneading.

8

If it is very hard you may add a teaspoon or two of olive oil or warm water.

9

Continue kneading until the ball of dough is smooth and elastic.

10

Cover dough with a clean towel and let it rest at least 30 minutes.

Rolling Pin Method
11

Dust the work surface with flour.

12

Cut the dough ball in half.

13

Flatten the dough.

14

To roll dough, start in the center of the flattened dough and push outward with the rolling pin. Lift the dough off the rolling surface and give it a quarter turn and repeat. Continue this rotation until you have a round, thin sheet of dough

15

Dust the dough and surface as necessary to prevent it from sticking to the rolling pin and the rolling surface.

16

At this point, you can fold the sheet of dough and cut into strips about 1/8 of an inch wide.
