In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine flour, salt and water and knead for 7-8 minutes, or alternatively, mix by hand and knead for about 20 minutes. If dough is too dry, add a teaspoon of water at a time. If it's too sticky, add flour a tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together.
Cover dough and let rest at least 20 minutes.
Return dough to mixer and knead another 10-15 minutes. When it's ready, the gluten should make the dough stretchy.
Divide dough into two pieces.
Take one piece of the dough and feed it through flat roller of a pasta machine set to 1 and then repeat on 2 and then 3.
Cut the long sheet into 2- 3 shorter lengths, dredge in flour and then run through the spaghetti cutter.
Once all the dough has been rolled and cut, boil in water for 2-3 minutes until al dente.
