Country Style Wholewheat Flat Eggs Noodle

Last year I bought a pasta machine at Ross's store in PA when I visited Gertrude .Unfortunately I don't have the chance to use it until now.My mom keep advise me to make my own pasta/noodle because she said homemade pasta/noodle is more healthier and cost effective,plus no alkaline water and no etc,etc chemical .Usually I use dry pasta in box or fresh noodle from Asian store when cooking .Mishu love pasta/noodle but since she on diet menu,I try to cook most of her meal at home.Now I have an good excuse to use my new pasta machine! lol! Since Mishu go back to school in morning ,I really accomplished alot of thing at home beside shopping and gardening! Pasta make from wholewheat have a very good source of dietary fiber and manganese, and as a good source of magnesium.Well,we should emphasis on eating healthy now,right?







Ingredients:
300 gm unbleached all purpose flour
200 gm whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2/3 cup water
Method:
1:Sift unbleached all purpose flour into mixing bowl.Add on wholewheat flour,salt and make a hole in the center,break in eggs,add in water.Mix and knead into a stiff dough/Cover with a piece of wet cloth or paper towel and rest for 1 hour.
2:Dust counter top with some starch flour/corn flour,roll dough into thin sheet and cut into broad strip or use pasta maker to roll and cut the dough.
3:Prepare enough water in stock pot at high heat,add in 2 tbsp oil to prevent pasta/noodles from sticking with each other..When water rolling boil add in the pasta/noodles.Gently stir the pasta with a long wooden spoon to separate the noodles .Cook pasta for 8-10 minutes or until all the pasta float to the top or tender but still firm when you eat it.
4:Drain immediately into a large colander standing in the sink, and then pick up the colander with its contents and shake it well to remove excess water.
wholewheat flour and unbleached all purpose flour
combine ingredients and knead the dough
sprinkle dough with some starch flour,roll pasta with pasta machine

cut pasta /noodles using pasta machine
keep the same process until all the dough gone!

I bought a pasta machine at Ross too thinking who knows, I might need it. Sigh, it is still brand new sitting in the box. I think it will need a day when I suddenly feel like working hard in the kitchen. It's great that you finally took yours out and used it! The homemade paste looks great, it's always better homemade.

I too have yet to use my pasta maker. I find it too much hassle to make my own pasta or noodles since I will be the one who will be eating it most of the time :)
