    Just for fun, find a video of Chinese hand pulled noodles being made. It will make you feel culinarily inferior. Well at least it has that effect on me.

    The first time I tried making noodles, I didn't let the dough rest. It was hard and unforgiving; I threw it out.

    Incidentally, I have my grandmother's noodle/breadmaking board. It's 100 years old this year. I just used it this week to make rugelach.

        Hi mandab,

        welcome /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif

       Handmade pasta is easy to make.  I know when I was trying to learn to make it I forced myself to make it several times a week, just so I could get used to making it.  Now, I don't make it all the time, but I won't hesitate because it's too large of a task.  There are tons of recipes out there...I'll include one for you.

    When I make pasta noodles I'll use the aid of my Kitchen Aid's pasta attachment...it really helps alot!  Do you have any type of pasta attachment?  If I'm making handmade noodles for chicken noodle soup I'll often just work the dough flat and cut with a large pizza cutter for a more rustic look and feel.  

        Tyler, those videos are really something to watch.

      mandab...have fun!
