Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water you may not need

Instructions

  • 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.
