Mix together the flour, egg, egg yolks and sea salt and knead to a smooth dough. As soon as the dough is smooth and soft, shape it into a ball, wrap it in cling film and leave it to rest in a cool place. Using a pasta machine, roll the dough into thin sheets and cut these into squares of approx. 7 cm. Cook the pasta sheets for approx. 2 minutes and glaze with a little olive oil.
