Well Good morning to all my Friends and Family! I know it has been a few days since my last post and I am sorry about that, but I have been working many hours this week. I have not cooked or baked anything new this week and have been sitting here trying to decide what my next post would be about and what sort of recipe I wanted to share today.
Joe and I were talking a few weeks ago about how our Grandmother’s used to make the best homemade noodles! So we did a little digging around on the internet and found this recipe for homemade egg noodles and we made them. We never took any pictures though, as we didn’t know at the time we would start writing this blog. We thought that making your own noodles would be very difficult, because no one ever makes their own anymore. It is sort of a forgotten technique now a days. We found that making your own is actually very simple, with a little effort.
Servings: about 6
2 1/2 cups flour
1 pinch of salt
2 eggs beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
# 1 – In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Add the beaten eggs, milk, and butter. Knead the dough until smooth ( I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer on low setting with the dough hook attached ) about 5 minutes. Let rest in a covered bowl for 10 minutes.
# 2 – On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 or 1/4 inch in thickness. ( HINT: It helps if you let the pasta dry for about 20 minutes before cutting ). Cut into desired lengths and shapes.
# 3 – Allow to air dry until the cut shapes are no longer moist and sticky before cooking.
# 4 – Cook fresh pasta in a large pot with boiling, salted water and cook until al dente.
