  1. Preheat the oven to 180 deg.C
  2. Place potatoes on baking tray, prick the potatoes, and bake for 70-90min or until soft
  3. Remove the potatoes from the oven cut in half and scrape out the flesh and pass the potatoes through a sieve
  4. Weigh out 550g potato puree and place in a large bowl.
  5. Add the flour, Parmesan, egg yolks and oil and work into a dough. Season to taste
  6. Turn out the dough on a lightly floured workbench and knead for 3 minutes. If the dough feels wet, add more flour. The dough should be firm yet soft
  7.  Roll a handful of dough into a ball and using your gently roll out the dough into tubes roughly 2 cm in diameter. Repeat until all the dough is used up.
