This recipe was taken from "Italian Cooking" by Dorothy Daly. It was published by Spring Books in Great Britain. For the complete copyright-free cookbook see www.archive.org. A variety of recipes can also be found on this website.... P.S. In Molise prior to World War II tagliatelle was generally made without eggs in the countryside, however, later on, in the 1950s tagliatelle may have included eggs. In any case, Dorothy Dale's recipe for fresh pasta, including tagliatelle includes the following incredients: 1 lb. flour, 2 or preferably 3 eggs a pinch of salt and lukewarm water.........
