How to make it

  • Make a well in center of flour. Add egg yolks, egg and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  • Mix in water 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough is stiff, but easy to roll.
  • Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll dough, one part at a time, into paper- thin rectangle on a well- floured cloth -covered board. (Keep remaining dough covered).
  • Loosely fold rectangle lengthwise into thirds; cut crosswise into 1/8-inch strips for narrow noodles, ¼-inch strips for wide noodles. Shake out strips and place on a towel until stiff and dry, about 2 hours.
  • Repeat with rest of dough.
  • Break dry strips into smaller pieces as desired. Cook in 3 quarts boiling-salted water (1 TBS. salt) until tender, 12 to 15 minutes; drain.
  • To cook half the noodles, use 2 quarts of water and 2 tsp. salt.
  • You can serve warm noodles with butter and dried parsley flakes or your favorite sauce or gravy.
  • DO AHEAD TIP: After drying, noodles can be covered and stored no longer than 1 month.

    Great recipe!! Prior to my mother's death she taught me to make home made completely by hand noodles, but I wasn't positive about the ratio of ingredients and yours were right on!!
