Homemade Pasta (or Noodles)

    2 hours 30 minutes

    It's actually very simple to make your own pasta - you don't even need a pasta machine. If you run out of counter space you can dry the pasta on clothes hangers.

    This is a wonderful recipe & so simple. I used my food processor. Just mix the egg & milk together in one bowl & put the dry ingredients in the processor bowl. Put the top on,turn on the processor & slowly pour the wet ingredients through the food chute. In just seconds, it will form a ball. Stop the processor immediately & VOILA that's all there is to it! Just have to roll it out. Thanks for the recipe.  -  10 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made these for years. I don't use the baking powder and I roll them as thin as I can. The broth is what really makes them good. I just use some cans of chicken broth and add a few bullion cubes to it to make it stronger. Everyone loves it and I am asked to make it a lot. To keep from making a big mess you can roll it out onto some floured wax paper and toss the wax paper flour and all when you're done.  -  27 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My family loves it when I make these noodles for my chicken noodle soup. I have made these several times with baking powder, w/o baking powder, rolled thin, rolled thick, dried out , not dried out. Personally like to add the baking powder it makes them a bit more airy, I also like them rolled thicker, & they don't need to be dried out at all. I make them & in to the pot they go,very quick & easy. These noodles are also great the next day as they sit over night in the soup they don't get mushy. Yummy comfort food!  -  04 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
