Do you put olive oil in pasta dough?
Olive oil lends great flavor to pasta, but it makes the dough brittle and prone to cracking if it dries. It’s best not to use olive oil if you are shaping the dough into tortellini or ravioli. If you want to add olive oil for flavor, you can add just a little—about 1 teaspoon per cup of flour is a good ratio.

Can you use bread flour for pasta?
Bread flour is high in gluten, so it’s also suitable for making pasta. In fact, there’s enough gluten in bread flour that adding eggs isn’t crucial – it’s actually more suited for use in a dough without egg (pasta bianca). This type of pasta has been made in southern Italy for hundreds of years.
