Preparation and cook time:
The preparation and cook time for this recipe is about 1 hour. The dough needs to rest for 30 minutes, and the noodles need to be boiled for 3-5 minutes. The entire process is fairly easy, and the results are worth the effort.


  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, and salt.
  • Gradually add the flour, mixing until a dough forms.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-7 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • After the dough has rested, divide it into 4 equal pieces.
  • Roll out each piece of dough into a thin sheet, about 1/8-inch thick.
  • Cut the noodles into your desired width.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until they are al dente.
  • Drain the noodles and serve immediately.


  • For the best results, use a large pot of water when boiling the noodles. This will help to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
  • Don’t overcook the noodles. They should be al dente, which means they should be slightly firm to the bite.
  • If you don’t have a pasta machine, you can roll out the dough by hand. Just be sure to roll it out as thinly as possible.
  • You can add other ingredients to the noodles, such as spinach, herbs, or cheese.
  • Serve the egg noodles immediately, or they will start to become dry.

Here are some additional tips for making homemade egg noodles:

  • Use high-quality flour. The better the flour, the better the noodles will taste.
  • Don’t overwork the dough. Overworking the dough will make the noodles tough.
  • Let the dough rest. This will allow the gluten to relax and make the noodles easier to roll out.
  • Roll out the dough thinly. The thinner the dough, the more tender the noodles will be.
  • Don’t overcook the noodles. Overcooked noodles will be mushy.
  • Serve the noodles immediately. This will prevent them from drying out.
