I made these noodles for Short Rib Lasagna (to be posted tomorrow). These were made over the holidays for our BIG family dinner that my mom and I hosted and cooked. It turned our delicious…Jeff and I totally agreed that the lasagna wouldn’t have been nearly as good with store-bought noodles. Therefore, lesson learned again….Its worth it to make your own noodles. And…its really not that hard.
P.S. Remember to boil your noodles before assembling a lasagna. Last year, I made homemade cannellini, forgot to boil the noodles, and resulted in a pregnant teary melted cheese looking disaster.
P.S.S. In the words of Nanna, if it was that bad then you’ll never do it again. TRUE! I remembered to cook the noodles this year and its been documented.
P.S.S.S. EVERYONE has cooking disasters! Don’t be too hard of yourself when its your turn:)
3-4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 T. olive oil
Place 3 cups flour and salt into a food processor. Add one egg at a time, pulsing the mixture as you go. Pulse until dough ball forms. If the dough is too wet, slowly add more flour. On a floured surface crank pasta into a pasta maker to size 5. Lay sheets of pasta out. Boil and use! I let my pasta sit out over night. It was hard the next day, like store-bought pasta. It took longer to cook in the boiling water, but it turned out perfect!
