All you need is 1kg of plain flour, 5 eggs and extra water to make 2 cups of egg/water mixture and a whole heap of patience!
|Step 1: Place flour in a bowl, make a well and add the beaten egg/water mixture.|
|Step 2: Mix and lightly knead the dough to form manageable pieces to feed into the roller of the pasta maker.|
|Step 3: The dough is initially put though the roller set at number 2 thickness. Continue to feed the dough into the roller until smooth.|
|Step 4: Dad makes about 9 pieces (9 single serves) measuring about 23cm in length.|
|Step 5: Change the roller setting to number 5 and feed the dough through the roller.|
|Step 6: Feed the dough into the cutter. Pasta makers usually have 2 thickness - thick (fettticini style) or thin but we usually make thin.|
|The noodles can be frozen - we place the portions in plastic containers separated by grease proof paper.|
Cook the noodles in boiling water until al dente which is around 10 minutes.
