It doesn't get any simpler than this.

  • 200 grams tipo 00 flour
  • 1 egg with yolk
  • 3 more yolks
  • A couple tablespoons of salt for boiling the noodles.


  1. Weigh out that flour. Don't trust your measuring cups because they're not accurate with flour.
  2. Make the obligatory well of flour on your counter top - just press a small bowl into the center of the flour.
  3. Add eggs into the well.
  4. Mix with a fork until combined, using a bench scraper to help keep things together.
  5. Knead the dough until if forms a smooth ball.
  6. Let the ball site for a minimum of 20 minutes if using right away, or put in the fridge and set it out 30 minutes before rolling.
  7. Use a bench scraper to slice the ball in half twice, forming four segments.
  8. Roll each segment into a cylinder and press out into a rectangle.
  9. One at a time, send the dough through a roller on the #1 setting three to four times. Send it through the settings #2, #3, #4 two times.
  10. Trim the dough sheet so it forms a fairly good rectangle.
  11. Fold the dough in half twice and cut into 1 inch divisions.
  12. Unfold the dough, dust with flour to keep it from sticking if needed, and lay on a rack to dry a bit.
  13. After all the noodles are cut, cook right away or let sit for an hour and tie into nests.
  14. Fresh noodles like this only need about 3 minutes to cook. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add in a couple tablespoons of salt.
  15. When done, toss with your favorite sauce.


Prep time will decrease quite a bit once you get the hang of things. I'm liberal on timing here to pad in case you haven't tried making noodles yet.

If the mixture is too dry, add another egg yolk or some whites and continue to mix.

If the mixture is too wet, add a small amount of flour and continue to knead.

Please, please, do not add oil to the boiling water. It will hinder the noodles ability to soak up sauce.
