Home Rolled Noodles

Rolling noodles at home is easy and very fulfilling when you deliver the dish to the table to wonderful cheers of excitement! Here is how I make them
First make a well in 2 cups of flour, add 2 eggs, a pinch of salt and 1tsp evoo

Use a fork to combine the eggs, oil and salt, gently pulling the flour into the mixture, you may add milk or water to keep the mixture together. It will be a tough dough. Separate into four pieces, and let rest for 20 minutes.
Roll out as thin as you can handle and then roll the rectangle pieces up jelly-roll style. Slice with a bread knife very as thin as you can.
This is what one noodle will look like:
unroll the rounds and hang to dry (I draped the noodles over a strainer) to dry for a few minutes. Or boil in water immediately. Noodles are done when they float to the top of boiling water. We tossed with butter and lemon pepper. Yummy!
