Homemade Noodles
2/3 C. flour
1 egg
½ tsp. salt
1 Tb. Water
1 tsp. oil

Mix flour and salt. In separate bowl, barely mix egg, water and oil, then add to flour mixture and stir until dough can be mixed into a ball. Knead until smooth and pliable and then let rest in a covered bowl for 10 minutes. Roll out dough on floured surface, into a very thin rectangle shape. Let dry for 20 minutes. Before it becomes brittle, cut into thin strips with pizza cutter and add to soup. You can also roll dry dough into a “scroll” and slice through all thicknesses, for more even shaped noodles. Noodles can be frozen at this point also if desired.
