More Details:

3 1/3 cups white flour
4 eggs
2 pinches of salt

  • Place flour in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center of the flour mound.
  • Crack the eggs into the well and sprinkle salt over the whole thing.
  • Using your hands, mix well until well-blended.
  • Turn the mixture out onto a clean, lightly floured countertop and knead thoroughly.
  • Now knead some more.
  • Keep kneading.
  • When the dough is smooth and the consistency of Play-Doh, let it rest on the counter for a half hour or so.
  • Cut the dough into four pieces.
  • Roll and cut your dough following the instructions on your pasta roller; OR
  • Roll dough piece on a floured countertop to 1/16" thick - the thinner the better.
  • Shoot for a rectangular shape but don't worry too much about it.
  • Once the dough is rolled out, let it rest for another half hour or so.
  • Start at one end and roll the dough up jellyroll style.
  • Cut the roll into slices, as thick or thin as you want them.
  • Fluff and separate the noodles and let them rest for another half hour.
  • While the noodles are resting, start a large pot of water to boil.
  • Add a tablespoon or so of oil to the water to help fight against sticking.
  • Drop noodles into boiling water a few at a time, stirring so they don't stick together.
  • Boil noodles for 3 to 5 minutes, checking a noodle each minute for doneness.
  • Noodles should be al dente - just a bit of texture and not completely soft.
