How to make Pasta from Scratch
Try making homemade noodles the next time you prepare your favorite soup or Italian dish. Don’t forget that fresh pasta cooks much quicker than dried.
You may use a dough hook attachment on your electric mixer, or do it the old-fashioned way; use your hands.
HOMEMADE NOODLE RECIPE
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder (optional)
2 TBS cold milk
Combine egg, salt, milk. Add flour. (For thicker noodles add baking powder to flour before mixing.) Separate into two balls. Roll out dough, and let stand for 20 minutes.
Cut into strips and spread to dry; dusting with a little flour. Allow two hours drying time.
Now you can just drop into homemade soup. These noodles take 10 minutes to cook. You may also boil them in salted water; drain, and add to casseroles.
TIPS: For distinct flavor – add any spice that you like. Try adding parsley, garlic, or basil to the dough. Very tasty.
