  • warm water 
  • 2 tsp of salt

  2. Add eggs and slowly add as much water as necessary to achieve a pliable dough. Start with 1/4 cup water.
  3. Process for another 30 seconds.
  4. On a well-floured surface, roll dough to around 1/16-inch thick (between 1 and 2 mm).
  5. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut squares of dough 3/4-inch wide. Sprinkle flour over the dough and release noodles from the working surface.  Separate the pieces by running your fingers through them.
