A sweet friend from our Parish invited me to make noodles with her.  Her late husband was Italian and she blessed him with this delightful treat during the Christmas season.  Thank you Eva for making me a part of your memories.

3 eggs
3 cups of flour
1/2 of eggshell of water per egg added 

Blend in food processor until a ball forms, knead a bit longer.  Let rest for 3-5 minutes covered and feed through your pasta machine as directed.  

Great tips:  placing a sheet under a drying rack to catch the loose noodles
wearing gloves
letting the thin sheets of noodles dry a bit before cutting into strips

We also made raviolis, what an awesome Christmas gift to my family!

BTW, guess what my sweet dh brought home for me this weekend?!  Guessing he liked those noodles!  Thankful for my friends, my husband and my time spent in Advent devotions, on the waiting of Christ Jesus.

We LOVE homemade noodles! I'll have to try your recipe, (and the towel under the drying rack, that always bugged me!) Now why didn't I think of that?!
Why the rubber gloves?

Gloves... she said that it was great for not getting the "gunk" under your nails... I don't have a problem with that, and I don't really like the feel of latex. Being a pastry chef makes me want to use the tools God has given me when working with doughs... my hands. So much is said by the feel of the dough. Blessings!
