Homemade Noodles

 With some help from my sous chef home made noodles made it on the menu for lunch today.
Fresh Pasta
1 cup flour
1 egg
small amount of water

Pour the flour onto your counter making a well in the center.
Break the egg into  the well and using a fork mix the flour and egg together.
Sprinkle water over dough and knead into a dough for about 30 seconds.
Let dough rest on the counter for a few minutes.
Knead the dough a second time and run through pasta maker.

When I use my machine I start with the largest setting and run the dough through, then fold in half and run it through again.
This dough is pretty shaggy and sending it through the pasta maker smooths it out.
After it has gone through at the widest setting a few times, send it through at narrower settings a click or two at  time until it's thin enough to run through the cutting rollers.

These noodles cook really fast. It only took about 2 or 3 minutes to boil them.
They were delicious.

Great tips--we're still trying to master the homemade noodle around here.
