1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 Tbsp water
After the dough has rested, lay it on a pastry cloth or waxed paper. Using a rolling pin, or sturdy bottle or cup, roll the dough out thinner than pie crust. Fancy noodles are made from rolling the dough out until it is almost see-through, but I am not that dedicated. After getting the dough as thin as your patience and arm muscles suggest, let it rest again, to dry slightly, if you have the time. It is easiest to cut after resting the dough for about two hours, but I often cut it right away with a pizza cutter. Use your own best judgment in this regard. However you do it, make squares or rectangles about 1/2 inch wide. Remember they will swell up as they cook, so make them smaller than you think you should.
To cook the noodles, drop them in boiling broth or bouillon from cubes. If some meat is in with the broth, so much the better. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the noodles are tender enough for eating. Drain and serve plain with a little margarine, or donít bother draining and serve as a soup or stew.
