I use my Kitchen-Aid to make my noodles now, as it definitely saves time. I love my pasta roller attachments! But even if you don't have a pasta roller, you can make wonderful egg noodles with just a rolling pin, a knife and some good old fashioned elbow grease.
It really is this simple....
|1) Mix 3 cups of flour, 4 eggs, 1 tsp salt and 1 Tbsp water|
|2) Mix ingredients until the texture of course cornmeal|
|3) Knead dough with hands until smooth and elastic.|
Dough will be very stiff.
|4) Cover dough with a bowl or plastic wrap and let|
rest for 20 minutes. This will allow the gluten to
develop, making the dough even more elastic.
|5) Cut dough into sections|
|6) Roll dough sections out to desired thickness.|
I prefer a thickness of about 1/8th inch.
|7) Fold dough into thirds|
|8) Cut dough into strips of desired thickness.|
|9) Hang noodles to dry. I use a clothes dryer as a pasta rack|
but you can use whatever you have. If you have nothing to
hang your noodles on, you can lay them out on a floured cloth
I cook my noodles in salted, boiling water for approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Or I cook them in my soup if that is how I am serving them.
See how easy making your own egg noodles really is? Now you can make any meal special!
