Although the ingredients for this dough are similar to those for homemade noodles, the method of preparing the dough is different.


  • 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs


    1. Place the flour on a board and make a depression in the center. Break the eggs into the hole.

    2. With the hands, work the eggs into the flour until dough forms a ball. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic. Let it stand, covered with a towel, for one hour.

    3. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured board until it is very thin. Stretch it over the rolling pin until it is paper-thin and translucent.
