Homemade Noodles

Fresh pasta is the best! You can let these noodles dry before cooking them, or use them fresh. Fresh dried pasta can also be stored in a container or a zip lock bag to be used at a later date, just make sure the pasta is very dry before storing.

How to Make Homemade Noodles


  • 1In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour and remaining ingredients. With a mixer at medium speed, beat for 2 minutes, occasionally scraping bowl. With a wooden spoon, stir in the remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • 2Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-10 minutes. Cover dough and let rest 30 minutes.
  • 3Cut dough in half.
  • 4On a lightly floured surface, using a floured rolling pin, roll half the dough out as large as you can; 14x20 or larger. Noodles will get a little thicker as they cook, so you want the dough to be rolled out fairly thin.
  • 5Using a pizza cutter, cut rolled out dough into ½ inch strips for medium noodles, or cut the size the size of noodles you like.
  • 6Place strips of noodles in a single layer on a large clean towel.
  • 7Repeat with other half of dough.
  • 8Let the noodles dry completely. This can take up to 4 hours or so. Drying time can depend on the temperature it is in the house. (Sometimes I make these noodles in the evening and let them dry all night).
  • 9When noodles are dry, break them into smaller lengths and drop them into boiling broth…or liquid. Cook for about 12 minutes.
