Total Time38 mins
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons water you may not need
Take the freshly ground wheat and put a hole in the center. Add the eggs, and mix with a fork one at a time. If the pasta appears too dry, add in a little water, just a little at a time. Flour hands and form pasta into a dough by kneading. Wrap in plastic and let rest for 30 minutes.
Once rested, roll pasta out, as thin as you can with a rolling pin or take through a pasta roller on a Kitchen Aid. Once you have the pasta strips, allow to sit out on a cloth to dry slightly, up to 20 minutes. You want the pasta hard enough so that it doesn't stick when you cut and soft enough that it doesn't crack.
Fold strips in half and roll up and cut in one inch strips. Place in nests on the cloth. These can dry or you can cook immediately.
Fill a large pot with salted, boiling water. Cook about 3 minutes.
