      This was the first time I'd ever made noodles from scratch, and were they ever delicious. They were really not as hard as I had imagined. The directions here were very clear. I used them in turkey soup. Thanks Olga.

      This is a perfect quantity for 2, so its a good recipe for people who've never made fresh pasta before and want to give it a try.. Also requires very little counter space to make them. We love homemade noodles, the packaged kind just don't compare in flavor and texture. My kids demand them when I make chicken soup, they're so good..
