This recipe has been in my possession for a long time. I don't even remember where it came from, it is simply scratched on a piece of paper. Sometimes these recipes jotted down on paper and saved are the best in the world. This is one of those recipes....
It is a perfect for small families, but if you study the recipe you notice the size is part of the plan. This amount of noodle dough rolled out to a certain size guarantees that the noodles won't be too thick. So if you need more noodles make more dough, just remember to roll each (recipe portion size) ball of dough, individually.
Puffy Cheese Noodles
recipe source: unknown but Thanked!
serves 2 to 3
1 T milk
3/4 c flour
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl, combine the egg and milk in another. Beat the egg and milk together until well mixed. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet, use a fork and combine well. This is a stiff dough against the fork. Do not add any additional liquid. You may need to use your hands to work all the dry ingredients into the dough.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead 10 - 12 times. Shape it into a disk shape. This step will make the dough easier to roll out.
Roll the dough out into a (roughly) 12X12 shape. This size keeps the thickness of the noodle correct.
Sprinkle with a bit more flour and rub gently over the surface.
This is an important step; although the dough feels stiff, it has a lot of moisture.
Roll the dough up like a jelly roll and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Not a good photo, but it helps to show what your rolled and cut dough should look like.
Unroll onto a clean towel and let dry.
You can cook them after drying or break in half for easy storage and freeze.
