This recipe from "More from the Gluten-Free Gourmet", by Bette Hagman is being posted by request. I have not tried it, but I know somebody who swears by it and her husband who has no dietary restrictions agrees. If there is one gf pasta recipe to try, this is it, because as far as I know, there are no commercially made gf wide egg noodles on the market.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine flours, salt, and xanthan gum.
  2. Beat the eggs lightly and add the oil.
  3. Pour the egg-oil liquid into the flour mixture and stir.
  4. This will feel much like pastry dough.
  5. Work the dough into a firm ball.
  6. Knead for 1 or two minutes.
  7. Place the ball of dough on a potato starch-floured (rice flour turns noodles gray) breadboard and roll as**thin as possible**.
  8. This dough is tough and, when almost transparent, will still handle well.
  9. Cut into desired shape.
  10. For fettuccine and spaghetti, slice very thin strips.
  11. For a noodle casserole, make slightly wider noodles.
  12. If using for lasagne, cut into 1 1/2-by-4-inch rectangles.
  13. To cook pasta: Cook in salted boiling water, to which 1 tablespoon of oil has been added, for about 10 to 12 minutes depending on the thickness and size of your pieces.
  14. You will have to test for doneness.
  15. Drain and rinse well.
