Stretching Noodles

Appears in

Instead of rolling the dough paper thin before cutting it into noodles, I find it easier and more fun to stop rolling when the dough is about 1/16 inch thick, and after cutting into noodles, to stretch them the rest of the way to increase their length and thinness.
It is extremely important to allow the noodles to rest, covered with plastic wrap, before attempting to stretch them. A 2-foot cut noodle that has not rested will snap or break before being stretched to 4 feet. But if you let the noodles rest for 1½ hours, they can easily be stretched up to 8 feet.
