Homemade Rolled

Noodles and Pasta

Once you have tasted your own homemade noodles, you will be hard pressed to use store bought noodles again. It does require an investment in a pasta machine! However, with a little perseverance, you can roll out the dough between plastic wrap sheets with a rolling pin. Use a sharp knife to cut the pasta sheets into any shape - for example roll up the flour-dusted pasta sheet and slice through the roll to make very even, very long linguini or fettuccine or widen the cut to make lasagna.
