  1. Quick, easy & yummy.
  2. I cannot rate this,since it didn't work out for me. And I so wanted it to be able to make it. I increased the flour to one cup and after one hour it still wasn't dry. I placed it in the refrigerator to be easier to work with.Maybe I did something wrong,since I couldn't cut it in nice stripes and the dough was kind of soft. I omitted the food coloring. We ended up with snake like looking noodles,which we cooked in a soup and my DDs enjoyed their "snake soup".When they'll open their zaar account I'm sure they'll rate this five stars.I'll have to give this another try.
  3. This was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I omitted the yellow food coloring. Excellent taste! Made for 1-2-3 Tag.
  4. Serves 6?!? Not in my house! LOL! These were very tasty, but served 1 for a main dish. I ended up using 1 cup of flour and made the noodles with my pasta machine. When they were about half dry, I boiled them in chicken broth for about 4-5 minutes and served tossed with a little butter. Yum! I also skipped the food colouring. Made for 1,2,3 Tag. Thanks!
  5. These tasted wonderful! It's the first time that I've had a go at making noodles from scratch and I was surprised at how easy it is. The only change I made was to omit the food colouring. Thanks for this great recipe!


  1. Added a handful of chopped chives, substituted 2 egg yolks for the egg, and replaced 1/3 of the AP flour with almond flour. Awesome.
