ISO eggless dough for pasta machine

Every recipe I see for pasta machine dough includes eggs, but other than egg noodles, every pasta that I buy/ eat the ingredients on the package doesnt list eggs. So my question is, what are the requirements for an eggless dough to use in a hand cranked pasta machine ??

Here in the US - fresh pasta is usually made with AP flour and egg ... dry pasta (other than egg noodles) are made with semolina flour and water.

In Italy - fresh pasta is made with 00 flour and egg - AP is as close as your going to get in the US. By law, dried pasta in Italy is only semolina flour and water - no salt. That's why you salt the water when to cook your pasta.
