How to Make Homemade Noodles

These are just like the kind my mom used to make. Old fashioned, thick, and chunky, a just perfect.

I use my KitchenAid for the dough, which means making homemade noodles is even easier. If you don’t have a mixer you can easily knead the dough by hand, just knead the dough for a bit longer.

Noodle dough is easy to make add the dry ingredients to a mixer bowl and give it a stir. Add the liquids, and stir until a dough forms, then knead for 1 minute. You let the dough rest for a bit, and then it’s on to the trickier part.

Rolling Out Homemade Noodles

You can roll out the dough for homemade noodles with a machine, an attachment for your mixer, or by hand. Just remember you should dust the dough and your tools with flour to keep anything from sticking

  • machine: simply following the manufacturer’s directions, divide the dough in 4 pieces-you’ll roll big sheets first and then you can cut by hand or if your machine has blades you can machine cut the noodles as well, dust with flour as needed
  • mixer attachment: it’s really the same process divide the dough, use flour to keep it from sticking, roll out in long sheets, I roll on setting one first several times, then roll on setting two, from here I dust the sheet with flour, set it aside, a roll the other sheets, I prefer to hand cut the noodles so that’s what I do, you can use the cutting tool on your mixer if you have one
  • hand-rolling: dust a clean countertop with a little flour, divide the dough into 4 parts, hand flatten each ball and then roll until it’s your desired thickness, dust the cut noodles with flour and set aside

I like thick chunky noodles but you can roll them out as thin as you like them. Remember they do expand while cooking. And thin noodles cook faster.
