Homeade Noodles

2 Eggs
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Flour (bread flour is best)
1/4 cup Water

In a small bowl, beat eggs with salt. In a large bowl, place the flour and make a "well" in the center. Mix the eggs into the flour gradually. Add water to the dough one teaspoon at a time. Kneed until smooth and elastic, adding more flour and water if necessary. Divide the dough into thirds. Roll one part out at a time into a thin rectangle on a floured surface. Allow the dough to dry for a little while. Flour the noodle dough and fold the dough lengthwise into thirds and cut noodles into think strips with a sharp knife. Separate noddles and place on tea towels. Allow noodles to dry (mom never does). Boil to cook or freeze in an airtight container.

*To double the recipe, do not double the ingredients. For a larger batch, add an additional 3 egg yolks, 1 whole egg, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 cups flour, and 1/2 cup water.
