Homemade Noodles for a Crowd Recipe
- 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Melted butter and minced fresh parsley, optional
- 1. In a large bowl, combine 6 cups flour and salt. Make a well in the center; add eggs and water. Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. Gather into a ball; knead on a well-floured surface until smooth, about 10 minutes. If necessary, add remaining flour to keep dough from sticking to work surface and hands. Cover with a towel; let stand 10 minutes. Divide dough into eight portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 1/16-in.-thick square. Let stand, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Roll up, jelly-roll style. Using a sharp knife, cut into 1/4-in. slices. Unroll noodles and dry in a single layer on paper towels for 1 hour before cooking. To cook, bring salted water to a rapid boil. Add noodles and oil to boiling water; cook for 2 minutes or until tender but not soft. Drain; toss with butter and parsley if desired. Yield: 24 servings.
Tip: Noodles will stay warm and hold a long time in a slow cooker or electric roaster.
