  1. On a large, clean work surface, mound flour; make a well in the center and add egg yolks, eggs, 2 tablespoons water and salt.
  2. Use a fork to beat eggs in the well; gradually incorporate flour.
  3. Once flour is incorporated, form a round ball and begin kneading the dough; discard any dried bits.
  4. Lightly flour work surface and knead dough until smooth and elastic; form a flat rectangle, wrap tightly with plastic wrap, refrigerate 20 minutes to 6 hours, to rest.
  5. Unwrap dough and flatten to about 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Set the rollers of a hand cranked or electric pasta machine to it's widest opening; run dough through, fold dough lengthwise and repeat.

  9. Repeat with other piece of dough.
  10. Cut dough into 7 inch long pieces; roll up each piece and cut into 1/2 inch wide strips.

This is exactly how my grandma taught me to make noodles and I am in my "50's" :). The only thing she taught me different is to add vodka instead of water as vodka doesn't stick to the gluten in the flour. Yummy................
