(noodles drying out)
(noodles cooked in chicken stock)
(6 to 8 servings)
*2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*2 eggs, beaten
*1/2 cup milk
*1 tablespoon cold butter
~Stir together, in a large bowl, flour & salt.
~Add eggs, milk & butter, mix well.
~Knead dough until smooth, about 5 minutes.
~Cover bowl and let rest for 10 minutes.
~Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface.
~Roll dough to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness. I prefer 1/8 inch thickness.
~Cut into desired lengths or shapes.
~Allow to dry on a cooling rack or clean towels for 3-5 hours, will not hurt noodles if you want to let them dry out the entire day. (If drying on a towel, you must flip it half way through the drying process)
~Cook pasta, in a large pot of salted boiling water for 8-12 minutes. (cooking time depends on how dry the noodle is).
`cook noodles in chicken or beef stock instead of water.
`if making soup, let noodles cook in soup broth.
