Last Sunday, I decided to make homemade egg noodles to go with our roasted chicken. I have never made noodles before, so I went to the Allrecipes site and watched the video on making egg noodles with your stand mixer. The recipe was simple, 2 1/4 cups
of flour, 1 Tablespoon of salt, and 3 eggs. I do not have the pasta attachment for my Kitchenaid Mixer. Two years ago at Christmas, I received an Imperia Pasta Machine. Since that time, it has sat, unused, in my cupboard, mainly because I was afraid to
My 12 year old daughter and I figured out how to connect it to my kitchen counter and insert the rolling handle. We had very few problems, except for the time I dropped the handle on her toes. We rolled the dough and and laid it out and cut our noodles by
hand. I really was a two person job. I rolled and she caught the dough as it came out of the machine. My pasta machine does have a cutter attachment, but I will save that for the next time. We probably could have rolled them a little bit thinner, because
my end product was a little thick. All in all, I was impressed with our efforts. My husband was also. He wanted to know where I bought the dough since I have never made my own pasta.
