Recipe 46: NEVER FAIL NOODLES (Side dish)

This is my aunt Marys recipe. She is a great cook. Her second husband, Uncle Phil, was a jovial Italian man with a love of people and food. Her recipes to me always seem to reflect his spirit. Uncle Phil passed away a few years ago, so this is in memory of him.  Love and Miss you Uncle Phil!

1cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/4 tsp butter
2 1/2 tsp milk

In a bowl, place flour and make a well.  Drop remaining ingredients into the well.  Mix with a fork to form a ball.  Roll out on a floured surface until very thin.  Let set for 20 minutes.  Cut as desired.

You can then use these noodles as you would any fresh pasta noodle. Typically you boil it in salted water for just a few minutes until al dente. (since it is fresh and not hard, dont overboil or you will have mush)

I use these for chicken and dumplings, chicken noodle soup, pasta, lasagna. You can do just about anything with these basic noodles.

  1. I've never made homemade pasta.... This doesn't sound too tricky though... might have to give it a try!
