Use Your Noodle.....It's About Time!!!!!

I have been wanting to make homemade pasta for a long time.
A really long time.
I have had the "tools"....I have had the "time"....but I wasn't sure I had the "talent".
Little did I know....
no "talent" is required!!!!

I also found out that very little "time" is required!!!!
I mixed up the dough in my KitchenAid mixer....
let it 'rest' for 15 minutes...

Effortlessly rolled it through the pasta machine....
allowed the noodles to dry briefly...

and enjoyed hamburger stroganoff for our evening meal!!!
It was delicious.
I am glad I finally used my 'noodle'!!!!

Whole Wheat Pasta
4 servings

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
4 eggs
2 tsp olive oil
water if needed (I used about 2 Tbsp)

Allow pasta to air dry at least 15 minutes to avoid it clumping together.

Cook in boiling water for 1 -2 minutes.

I used Gold N White flour
I was amazed at how effortless the whole process was...
and the above recipe was the perfect amount to feed 4 of us with a small bowl left over.

I made spaetzle for the first time last fall when I hosted Oktoberfest for my family. Since I don't have a noodle cuttter, I cut it on a board with a knife. I had rave reviews from the family!
