Homemade Egg Noodles






1 egg
1/2 - 1 teaspoon salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon pepper
all-purpose flour

In a mixing bowl, beat together the egg, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in flour until mixture forms a ball. On a very well floured surface, roll the dough out into a rectangle until quite thin. Flour the surface of the dough. Roll the dough up like a jelly roll. Using a sharp knife, slice the rolled dough into thin slices. Using your hands, toss the noodles carefully with flour (the rolled up noodles will unroll as you do this).

Drop the noodles a few at a time into rapidly boiling broth (or water) and cook for thirty minutes. This recipe makes a good-sized handful of raw noodles.
