This is the recipe that my family has used for as long as I can remember except we use 3 whole eggs in place of the 3 yolks and 1 egg and we do not let the noodles dry. We cut the noodles after we roll them and when the beef begins to boil we put the noodles in wet.Most of the time we use leftover roast beef and gravy or broth and we boil everything together for atleast 1 hour. Sometimes we add onion or potatoes. These can also be added as soon as the beef begins to boil.

It was cold, the power was out (again) and I needed a meal for a crowd that could be fixed on a propane burner without a lot of fuss and watching. This was perfect. Everbody loved it and ate every last bit. I cheated and used packaged whole wheat pasta. I added some bay leaves, salt and pepper to the cooking water. Excellent, MichelleDawn.
