Scrumptious Sunday ~ Pasta ~ Homemade Noodles

hosted by Meredith at Mercedes Rocks

We love pasta around here and I have been trying to perfect a recipe. This is the best recipe I have found so far, but oh sometimes I think it’s just easier to buy them. The price of the gourmet ones is still less than the cost of the ingredients and the mess I make in the kitchen! Then again the flavor of fresh homemade noodles is truly incomparable.

2 to 2 1/2 cups flour, divided 2 cups and 1/2 cup
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 eggs
1 tablespoon cold water

  • Place 2 cups of the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour.
  • Add the eggs and flour.
  • With your hands or a wooden spoon, gradually mix all together until well blended.
  • Gather into a ball and knead on a floured surface until smooth, about 10 minutes.
  • Add remaining flour as necessary to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands or the kneading surface.
  • Divided the dough into thirds.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll each portion into a paper thin rectangle.
  • Dust rectangle with flour to prevent sticking.
  • Trim edges and roll up jelly roll style.
  • Using a very sharp knife cut into 1/4 inch slices.
  • Unroll noodles and allow to dry on paper towels at least one hour before cooking.
  • Repeat with remaining portions.
  • Always add 1 tablespoon of oil to the cooking water for a better noodle.

Ahhh, homemade noodles … no packaged pasta can compare. I too take the shortcut, but it is so easy to make, really I should take the time more often. I haven’t made it regularly since we moved and that’s really been too long.

Loved your other two pasta Scrumptious Sunday recipes you posted today! Thanks for the 2 bonus ones. 🙂


I love homemade noodles… especially for chicken and dumpligs. In Oklahoma we used to eat at a Po’ Folks, I’ve always loved their Chicken ‘n’ Dumplin’s
