Delicious 100% whole wheat pasta noodles with or without a pasta machine.


  1. Mix together the flour, eggs, and salt.
  2. Add water as needed slowly. Dough should be firm, but not sticky.
  3. Pour dough out on a lightly floured surface until it has elasticity to it.
  4. Cover and let it sit for 30 minutes to relax the dough.
  5. Roll dough out to your desired thickness with a rolling pin or place in your pasta machine.
  6. There are different ways to form your pasta: Cut pasta in strips. Cut in squares, pushing sides towards the center. Wrap around a kabob stick (and let dry). *BE CREATIVE*
  7. Let it sit for 10-20 minutes to avoid clumping.
  8. Cook fresh pasta for 2-4 minutes (it will float to the top when finished).
  9. Enjoy :).

These whole wheat noodles were delicious!! I used them in my cream of chicken noodle soup and they added a wonderful, hearty flavor to the soup. I've been buying whole wheat pasta in the grocery store for a couple of years now because we have been trying to switch from using white pasta to whole wheat pasta, but I've never made whole wheat pasta. It was a little harder to work with than my usual white wheat pasta dough that I use, but with a little patience it all worked out. I made the dough in my food processor and I replaced 1 Tablespoon of the water with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. I rolled out and cut the pasta with my hand crank pasta machine. The dough was stickier than I'm used to, but by dusting extra flour on the dough every time I rolled it through the machine, it kept it from sticking to the rollers/ cutting blades. My family loved the flavor that the noodles added to the soup!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!
