On a clean, wooden cutting board, create a well in the middle of the flour and break the eggs into the center. Carefully mix the eggs with a fork as if you were making an omelette, bringing a little bit of flour each time you mix into the eggs. The key here is not to break the outside of the "well" before the eggs are completely mixed into the flour, otherwise you'll have eggs running all over your cutting board (not fun!).
Once the eggs and flour begin to mix (so there are no runny eggs left), start working the dough with your hands until the mixture is smooth but firm. Kneading the dough takes a bit of time! Finally when the dough is ready, it becomes super soft and a little shiny too.
Let dough rest for 20-30 minutes. After 30 minutes, roll out the dough with a rolling pin until extremely thin (you should be able to see the dark part of the cutting board faintly through the dough) and as circular as possible. Keep dusting with flour as you roll it out.
When it's thin enough, sprinkle cornmeal on the cutting board and the dough (to help prevent it from sticking). Fold up the dough into a flat "burrito" before you begin slicing it with a sharp knife.
Slice the dough with a sharp knife into 1/4 inch thick (or slightly less thick) slices.
As you cut the fettuccine, be sure to ruffle it up with your hands a bit and add cornmeal as needed to keep it light and to prevent sticking (as it sits)
Cook in salty, boiling water for just 3-4 minutes until al dente. Note: Wait to cook the pasta until the sauce is done.
