I never thought pasta could be so easy to make until I tied this recipe. Easy, fast and a large quantity from few ingredients. I like to serve this pasta with my Ukrainian Halushky recipe posted on this site at well. My children love just the pasta alone with onions sauteed in butter.

Very nice! I like to make fresh noodles and used my pasta machine to roll it out and cut it. It didn't mention when to add the oil, but I just added it when I was kneading the dough. I used at least twice the amount of flour because it was quite wet. I cooked the pasta in salted water for about 4-5 minutes and tossed with a bit of butter and some fresh parsley. Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2009. Thanks! :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups flour (white, or whole wheat)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 34 cup milk
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil, Canola

Directions

  1. Place the flour on your worktop, and make a well in the middle.
  2. Add the egg, and salt.
  3. Slowly add milk, as you are incorporating the flour into the mixture in the middle (with a spoon, work the flour gently from within the well, all sides, until you almost use up all the flour) . The dough becomes homogeneous , at which point you knead it with your hands, to obtain the consistency of pizza dough. You might need to flour up your worktop a little more, to prevent the dough from sticking during kneading.
  4. Place the dough on a floured surface, cover it with a tea towel, and let it rest for few minutes.
  5. Flour up you worktop again, take ½ of the dough and roll it out, using a rolling pin, to 1/8 inch thickness. Use a knife, or a pizza cutter, and cut to desired shape pasta.
  6. Sprinkle generously with flour, and toss gently together, so the pasta does not stick together, and let it rest.
