  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • ΒΌ cup water


  1. Mix together the flour and salt with clean fingers on the work surface. Create a well and add the yolks and egg. Continuing with your fingers, work the egg into the dough.
  2. Add the water 1 teaspoon at a time and work the dough until it holds together. Roll the dough to the desired thickness and cut into your desired width. Collect any leftover scraps and re-roll and cut until all the dough has been used.
  3. To cook, drop noodles into boiling water and boil until fully cooked, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on how thick your noodles are. Always test first and adjust the time as necessary.
