Are y'all ready for more of my awful pictures. Here they are pictures of my first attempt at homemade noodles.
We are having chicken and dumplings for dinner tonight. Teenage Monkey does not like dumplings, but he loves pasta. I thought it would be nice to give him something homemade too. It was not hard at all.
1 1/3 cup flour
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup hot water
Mix the flour, eggs, oil, and salt in a bowl and begin stirring. While stirring, add the hot water a little at a time until a ball of dough forms. Turn this out onto a floured cutting board and kneed for a minute or two. Roll out as thin as possible. Use lots of flour to keep this from sticking. Cut into long noodles and let them dry a little.
These cooked really fast. Less than a minute in boiling salt water and they were ready. Will definitely do this again.
